Playa Ovahe, Hanga Roa
(4.1/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
One of the island's only beaches, Playa Ovahe stands out with its soft sands and relative lack of visitors. Head for the secluded spot and kick back on the fine, almost pink-colored sands that blanket the area, surrounded by towering cliffs of black volcanic rock. Look carefully and you'll even be able to spot the caves that dot the cliffs, supposedly once home to some of the island's residents. Keep in mind that though the blue water looks inviting, swimming here can be dangerous due to unpredictable tides and rip currents.

  • Some people say that the beach no longer exists. I am arriving on the island and it seemed like an amazing place. It is very small and not so easy to access (must go through some rocks), but once there you feel you're in the navel of the world. The water is clear, allowing you to see fish and turtles. Eye, it is not suitable for bathing beach. I recommend protective solar, although last some time will form a shadow very rich.

  • Quiet hidden beach. Without shade during the morning, begins a e shadow at the 1 in the afternoon. Beware the roquitas falling from the wall.

  • If you are in Easter Island, you should know Sta small beach which is near Anakena. A little hidden, with a small difficulty to access it, but achievable. Note that there is no shade. Waves allow bathing calmly and the view is very nice.
