1. Easter Island: Full-Day Tour to Anakena
Experience the beautiful, dramatic scenery of Easter Island during a full-day tour to Anakena, a white-sand beach said to have been the landing point of the island's first settler, Polynesian chief Hotu Matu'a. The tour starts in Hanga Roa; explore the north- and southeastern coasts of the island and visit Ahu Akahanga and Ahu Tongariki. Ahu Tongariki hosts the greatest moai figures near the ocean, with 15 giant statues. Then head to Rano Raraku volcanic crater and see its "Cantera de los Moais," where more than 390 figures can be found. Stop for a picnic lunch surrounded by nature. Continue your tour and visit more impressive moai structures, including Ahu Nau Nau. Later, stop at Anakena Beach, one of the best swimming beaches on the island. Visit 2 small caves within a gorge and the nearby beaches of Poike and Ovahe where you can stop and relax. The tour ends in Hanga Roa, where you'll be dropped back at your hotel.
