General information

While it’s true that Easter Island has a different geography than the other islands in the Polynesian triangle, with high rocky cliffs and  and it’s not surrounded by huges beaches, the Easter Island beaches are certainly wonderful, especially Ovahe and Anakena. These both two small beaches are located just across from the village of Hanga Roa so are quiet and almost lonely enclaves where white coral and volcanic rock red have formed soft sands welcome the traveler in search of rest and peace.




The Easter Island beaches are ideal for swimming all year round. The sea in this part of the Pacific Ocean is quiet with a fascinating turquoise color and the perfect temperature. On the other hand, the luminosity of the waters surrounding Easter Island is rare to find in other parts of the world, so it is very common to see clearly small goldfish swimming around us.
