After a hearty breakfast in your hotel, go on a full day excursion to the Moais Route and the Anakena Beach.
From your Easter Island hotel, head over to the east of the island until you reach the Ahu Vaihu and the Akahanga temples. See some giant Moais (giant monolithic figures carved using volcanic stone) and their Pukaos (topknots or hats on top of the Moai statues). Continue on to Rano Rarakua, a volcanic crater with a lagoon. The Moais were carved on its slopes.
Visit the Ahu Tongariki where you can find 15 gigantic Moais. See the Te Pito Kura, a Moais considered as the largest in the island. Admire the Te Pito o Te Henua, a large spherical stone described by the ancient Rapa Nui people as the navel of the world.
Finish the second day of your tour with a few hours at the Anakena Beach where you can see a line of Moias with their backs facing the sea. Afterwards, return to your hotel in Easter Island.
After breakfast, head over to the Ana Kai Tangata Cave, a cave filled with ancient illustrations of birds, specifically sea swallows.
Marvel at the sight of the giant basalt slabs in the Vinapu archaeological site. As you visit the site, take the opportunity to see the majestic Rano Kau Volcano.
