The lovely beach is overlooked by a group of Moai. It has everything going for it. There are stands with food and drink, souvenirs are available, and there are nice places to sit and enjoy the atmosphere.

This beach is just a short way from the more popular Anakena. Water is clear with great waves and the swimming area is sandy with very few rocks. However, recently the waves have washed away almost all of the sand on the beach, leaving just...More

There are signs telling you not to swim but you can get to the beach by walking over the rocks. It was a very rocky beach when I was there, with waves crashing against the rocks, but there might be some sand when the tide's...More

There are 2 sandy beaches on the entire island and Ove is the smallest. It is about a 3-5mins drive from Anakena Beach. To access it, you will have to walk down a dirt path, climb over a few rocks, and depending on the tide...More

Fantastic beach. Really quiet. Much better than Anakena and not as much people there. Good for family. Have good shoes in order to get there. Flip-flops can be challenging

Anakena is one of the most beautiful beaches that my wife & I have visited and we've been all over the world. To make things even better there are Moai statues just off the beach. My only regret was that I forgot to use sunscreen...More

This is a lovely little beach, and by far the most private of the 3 beaches on Easter Island. If you really want a small place to yourself, go for it. If you want a private beach, then this is a 4-5 star attraction for...More

The only actual beach on the island is beautiful, perfect sand, waves, palm trees, atmosphere, everything. Come here during sunrise, sunset, take a dip in the cool waters while being surrounded by moais in this one-and-only-in-the-world experience.

I honestly found it difficult to consider Playa Ovahe a beach (playa), the area was very rocky and the sea here was fairly rough, so I would not find this a good location to tan or swim. If you are looking to get away from...More
