Easter Island, called Rapa Nui in the native language, is one of the most remote inhabited places in the world. Although it belongs to Chilean territory, it is located at the eastern end of the Polynesian Triangle (formed by Hawaii, New Zealand and Easter Island), in the middle of the South Pacific.

At the end of the world...

Rapa Nui is literally in the middle of the ocean. The nearest inhabited island is Pitcairn Island, about 2,000 kilometers away, and the Chilean mainland is about 3,700 kilometers away. It was precisely this enormous isolation from the rest of the world that led to such a special culture and mentality.
The island has an area of about 170 km², with a population of about 7,700 inhabitants living mainly in the only town called Hanga Roa.
Most of the territory is protected and forms the Rapa Nui National Park, where important archaeological remains are located.

The Perfect Surrounding

Easter Island is known worldwide for its gigantic lava tuff sculptures, the Moai, which represent and pay homage to the ancestors.
More than 1,000 of these gigantic statues are still preserved on the island, and in some places they still stand upright as guardians and protectors of the inhabitants.
The location of these ceremonial platforms (Ahu) and their moais continues to fascinate and amaze all those lucky enough to visit them.


Anakena - Haŋa Rau o te Ariki

Anakena - Natural Cosmetics takes its name from the beach Anakena, the place where it all began, because according to legend, the first settlers of the island landed here. It is a mystical, ceremonial place that has a special energy, called Mana in Polynesia, thanks to its Ahu Nau Nau and its wonderful Moais.
A possible origin of the word Anakena lies in the combination of the words "ana", meaning cave in the Rapanui language, and "kena", the native name for the booby (Sula dactylatra), a seabird that still nests on the island.

Anakena, the main beach of Easter Island, embodies the image of a beach paradise that many of us have in mind. The fine white coral sand, crystal clear turquoise sea, gentle waves and coconut palms create an ideal setting for rest and relaxation.
But Anakena is more than just an idyllic beach: this place is considered the cradle of Easter Island's history and culture, and stands as a symbol of the rich heritage of this fascinating part of the world.

Ancient culture

Legend has it that the first king of the island, Ariki Hotu Matu'a, landed in Anakena Bay with his family more than 1300 years ago.
The first settlers who settled on this remote island - isolated from other countries by the vast Pacific Ocean - developed a unique culture. They brought forth their own traditions, customs, language and writing that have endured to this day.
The ancient Rapa Nui also created huge moais, which they transported across the entire island. The mystery of how they accomplished this has not been solved to this day. Perhaps it is this mystery that makes the Rapa Nui culture so fascinating and enigmatic, arousing the curiosity of visitors and researchers alike.
