Ovahe is just down the coast from Easter Island's only other beach, at Anakena, a relatively easy climb down from the parking area. The beach itself is very small, in a sheltered cove, and the swimming is easier than at Anakena becasue of athe lack of any sort of undertow. (At Anakena one has to get through some crashing waves...

We went in September so it was pretty desolate and only found another small group of people there at the time. We parked our vehicle in... More

A white sand beach beside ancient moais is not something you experience often. It's not a s supervised beach so be aware of strong waves and stay clear of the shar volcanic rocks to be safe and avoid any injury/accident
