All about the Full Day Anakena Beach.

On today’s excursion you will discover the natural and historical highlights of Rapa Nui. You will leave the town of Hanga Roa behind and drive along the black coastline, accompanied by great views of the peninsula Poike. Your first stop will be the archaeological site Vaihu, where you will have a look at the remains of this ahu and will learn more about why all moai here face the ground. You will continue on the “Camino de los Moai” (Moai trail), passing several sculptures lying on the side of the road. Once you reached Ranu Raraku (the quarry where all moai were sculpted) you will have a delicious picnic lunch, before starting your ascent to the correspondent volcano. Here more than 300 statues can be appreciated, some of them half-carved, many broken, but all will give you an insight in the incredible culture of Rapa Nui. From the edge of the volcano you can also enjoy the view of a crater-lake. You will make another cultural stop at the recently reinstalled Ahu Tongariki and its 15 moai, before taking a small break at the beautiful Anakena beach. The white sandy seaside with coconut palm trees and the blue cove of warm pacific water make it a true paradise. Here you can relax on the beach, go for a swim in the nice water or discover two more Ahus, one of them particularly interesting because of the moais’ carvings on the back. From here you will return to your hotel, passing Vaitea, the only eucalyptus forest on the island.
