ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Anakena Beach, Easter IslandAt the most beautiful beach of the island, the capital of the ancient society was located. In the sand stands a monument with the best preserved restored moais of the entire island. Quite recently they were dug up after centuries of having been buried in the sand.
