Moais at Anakena Beach, Rapa Nui

Anakena has two ahus, one with a single moai and the other with six. It also has a palm grove and a car park.

Anakena is unusual for Easter Island in that it is one of only two small sandy beaches in an otherwise rocky coastline.

According to island oral traditions, Anakena was the landing place of Hotu Matu'a, a Polynesian chief who lead a two canoe settlement party here and founded the first settlement on Rapa Nui. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anakena
