Anakena Beach, Easter Island

4.9
#1 of 95 in Beaches in Chile
At Anakena Beach, stand in awe of the mighty "ahu" sculptures that have watched over mysterious Easter Island for centuries. Legend has it that the beach was the landing place of Hotu Matu'a, the tribal chief who arrived on the island with a party of two canoes, settling the territory. Examine the striking facial features of these sculptures, which date from between 1250 and 1500 CE. After you've appreciated the staggering history and the powerful monoliths, enjoy the white coral sand and lapis lazuli waters of the beach. Planning Hanga Roa trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • The most beautiful beach in Easter Island
  • Beautiful beach. Clean. Cold water to lukewarm. Privilege to see the MOAI from the beach. Scorching sun. You might want to bring food and drink. Are 3 small restaurants, expensive. I was on the right, immediately upon arrival. Almost 20,000 pesos, but very good. Bathroom is paid: 500 pesos.
