Anakena is a white coral beach in the north of the island. Anakena has two ahus, Ahu-Ature has single moai and Ahu Nao-Nao has seven. Anakena is unusual for Easter Island in that it is one of only two small sandy beaches in an otherwise rocky coastline. Anakena is believed to be the island's first settlement. Excavations of the site have confirmed that it had been occupied for a very long time.

Anakena is a great sandy beach with a semi protected cove that makes it easy to swim in the warm, clear blue waters on this side of the island. There is a rack of maoi watching over you as you do.

Anakena is a little bit of tropical paradise with its calm beach on an island that is otherwise surrounded by cliffs and crashing waves. Anakena is a popular picnic spot with a couple locally owned food shacks yet with very minimal amenities. Picnicking underneath the palm trees, while admiring the moais and soft waves was quite a fantastic way to relax in the middle of a hectic sightseeing day.
