#1 of 101 in Beaches in Chile
At Anakena, 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 Easter Island trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Our tour only included a short stop at the beach - enough time to see the Moai, to wade in the ocean and to enjoy a beer at one of the local bar/restaurants.
  • One of the best places to swim and relax on the island.
