Unexpected bounty beach on Rapa Nui. It is quite small and you need to walk over a few rocks to reach it. The water is quite cold. For the adventurers: park on the southside of Anakena beach. Nice 1 hour walk on the cliffs, with...More

Maybe it was the time of day I arrived but it is VERY difficult to get to this beach, climbing over very jagged rocks. When you arrive, the beach is small and not too impressive. I wouldn't recommend anyone wasting their time trying to get...More

We had a rented car and stopped in Ovahe quickly for a picture. We could barely see the sand and it wasn't pink as everyone "sells the place" as the pink sand beach. Not the easiest access, full of rocks, so not very worth it.

I did a quick stop on ATV on recommendation of a guide book. It’s a secluded area with a beautiful view, but I wouldn’t call it a “beach” really. Good for a stopover but probably not for a full day.

I like ocean sides. This is a nice place to visit but if your interest is visiting a beach, this is not the place, as the ocean has taken the beach away.

It is a nice beach. However, it is illegal to go there according to all of the signs at the beach. There is no lifeguard. However, diving tours still come here.

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
