Ahu Nau Nau is located near Anakena Beach in Easter Island. Anakena beach has two ahus(platforms), Ahu-Ature has a single moai and Ahu Nao-Nao has seven, two of which have deteriorated. The surroundings are extremely picturesque. Would certainly very highly recommend visiting this place with a local guide to get a better perception of history.

The Ahu Nau Nau is located 150 meters inland from the shore of Anakena beach. It is believed that here is the birthplace of the history and culture of Easter Island. This site has incredible views of the ocean. Ahu Nau Nau is the most elaborate and best preserved platform of the three that were built in Anakena. For a long time they laid buried in the sand on the beach, which allowed them to be more protected from erosion than the others. Restoration work started in 1978 and they were restored to their ancient splendor; making them the most beautiful archaeological site on the Island. A popular stop off on the island tours.

This is one of the recommended stops on the island. It does not disappoint. Check out the beautiful moláis standing guard a bit further back from the beach! Relax on the beach or take a swim! An excellent spot to snorkel and a very safe place to swim! If you get hungry drag yourself up to one of the restaurants. The food and drinks are good here and the scenery can’t be beat!

Moai + beach, a real good sum. You can explore the archeologycal site and then have a nice bath at the sea in a very beautiful place. Go with more than the one hour that tourism agencies offer when Anakena is included in a full day tour. And please, be careful while walking around the Moai. I've seen an awful scene of a couple who got scolded by the local security because they entered the protected area of the ahu. They said it was an accident, so I thought it would be nice to leave the tip here: people of Rapa Nui Island take very good care of their treasures, and they won't let anyone disrespect the boards in which one can clearly read "stop!". Not only security staff will do this job, but any Rapa Nui.
