The beauty is in the islands
Anakena - Natural Cosmetics was born on Easter Island to bring to your home all the aroma and magic of the South Seas.
Easter Island, called RAPA NUI in the native language, is one of the most remote inhabited places in the world. Although it is part of 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.
INSPIRED BY THE BEACH
At the end of the world...
Rapa Nui is literally in the middle of the ocean. The nearest inhabited island is Pitcairn, about 2,000 kilometers away, and mainland Chile is about 3,700 kilometers away. It was precisely this tremendous isolation from the rest of the world that gave rise to such a special culture and mentality.
The island has an area of 170 km2 approximately 7,750 inhabitants, who live mainly in its capital and only population center called Hanga Roa.
The best environment
The worldwide attention on Easter Island is due to its fabulous history and culture, which gave rise to the production of more than 1,000 gigantic statues carved in volcanic rock called moai.
Life is better in bikini and flip-flops
Anakena - Natural Cosmetics takes its name from Anakena beach, a mystical ceremonial site, with its Ahu Nau Nau (an ancient platform) and its marvelous moai (famous stone figures), on Easter Island (Chile), the most remote inhabited island on this planet.
Anakena, the main beach of Easter Island, represents the typical idea we all have in mind when we think of a paradisiacal beach. The fine white coral sand, the crystal clear turquoise sea, the calm waves and the coconut trees make it an ideal place for relaxation. But Anakena is not only an idyllic beach, this place is considered the cradle of Rapa Nui history and culture.
According to legend the first king of the island, the Ariki Hotu Matu'a, and his family, first landed in Anakena Bay.
A possible origin of the word Anakena can be found in the union of the following terms "ana"which means cave in the Rapanui language, and "kena", the native name for the booby (Sula dactylatra), a seabird that still nests on the island today.
