Anakena Beach is a forever beautiful stretch of beach on Easter Island. Sandy and gorgeous, but also inhabited by lots of beautiful dogs, and tiny little cats with their parents, and lots of amazingly lovely chickens with chicklets, with every colour in the rainbow on their coats. Do have a swim here.

Absolutely amazing beach, with white beautiful sand and not crowded at all. I wish I had more time here, but you typically visit it as part of a day tour as it is on the opposite side of the island from where you are most likely to live. If i had a 5th day, I would have spent it here!

Lovely beach with Moai and palm trees! Soft sand, and blue, pleasant waters (not hot but not cold either ). Very nice restaurants with shaded terrace ( mango pisco cocktail is fabulous).

After a day of exploring the island, we made this our last stop before heading back to the hotel. Anakena Beach is just as pretty as everyone says : nice white sandy beaches, coconut trees galore, cute wooden pathway = reminds you that you are in a tropical island lol. It was a nice place to relax and reflect on... More

a beautiful setting with the coconut palms swaying as you walk up to the moai. then walk a bit further and take more pictures THEN walk down to the beach and look back. you don't even need a camera for this one because it will be etched on your mind

Easter Island is not known for its beaches, but this is a great one. Fairly warm water and super soft sand. The colour of the water is beautiful and the beach was not that crowded when we went late morning. We had also visited around 3:30pm and it was crowded at that point. Not sure when the crowds actually do... More

One of my favorite beaches in the world! White sand, crystalline water (ok, it's cold, but not too cold), Moai as background... AMAZING! We went there two times. First to see the Moai and take pics, then just to enjoy a half day at the beach.

This area/beach was included in our second tour. The last full day we had on the island, I took at taxi (pay no more than 20,000 CP per ride) to this destination. Typical cool Pacific water, clear, but not Caribbean clear, yet inviting. Small waves, not populated with many people.
