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.

Still nice and less crowded tha Anakenna, the actual beach is gone and only 25% of what you see in the picture is still there.

This picturesque beach with a shallow, crystal blue bay is a perfect late afternoon stop if you are on the northeast side of the island. Get ceviche - or curry chicken - at one of the three outdoor restaurants with a pina colada or mojito...More

Hidden in the north of the island. Depending on the moment of the day the beach can be almost completely covered by the ocean. Go there but respect this little slice of pardise !

Tucked away between two rock formations, this little beach is a beauty! This beach was way less busy than Anakena. We are so glad we found this one first and spent some time here. It was peaceful and relaxing with fairly tame waters. This was...More
