These Moai are near a white sand beach and palm trees. That makes them different than so many of the others. They are interesting because of the top knots and the visible carvings on the statues and the rocks. There is one other Moai located...More

These were near the beach and as we didn't get to the beach, these were an extra attraction. They were a very short walk away from the bar.

Four top knots makes this set a good one to see. Light's not the best for photos because they face south. Right next to Anakena beach so easy to see during your swimming break.

These Moai are very well preserved and close to Anekena beach. They have carvings on them, ear lobes and belly buttons that you don’t see on any others

With the sand beach full of swimmers and sun bathers, plus the beautiful stand of mature palm trees, this row of moai are viewed differently than others around the island. An added benefit of this grouping was the number that had topknots. All-in-all a very...More

The moai at Anakena were apparently buried in sand for many years, and so the carved details are much more visible than on most others.

Loved these 7 - saw them after we finished the trek to the highest point. You're well rewarded with these moias, which have the topknots (hats, sort of.)

The main reason for our visit was a "time-off" from the Moais and a few hours at the beach. Beautifully set; the waves were perfect for body-surfing, the sand quite nice.

This collection of Moai is one of the most perfect that you'll encounter on the Island. They are set on a lovely beach location, and most are fitted with topknots, indicating personages of importance.

This is a beautiful spot for the Moai, and thus also a beautiful spot for photos! They are set against a beach backdrop on one side and a green hill with palm trees on the other side.
