The area contains the ruins of two Ahu, (ceremonial platforms for the moais) one of which shows similarities to Machu Picchu’s stonework. The moais that used to sit on top of the structure have unfortunately toppled over
These are the most famous of the moais, where all 7 face the ocean, whereas all others face inland. Legend has it that this was the site where the Rapa Nui king first set foot on the island in the 4th century.
A volcano containing the quarry where nearly all the moais were sculpted. All 394 moais here were left unfinished and at varying stages of completion
This small ceremonial village comes to life during the Tapati Rapa Nui festival in January, though it is better known for the nearby Rano Kau volcano, whose crater has a diameter of 1.6 km and is 200m deep
Today it is only a shrine where the largest moai ever transported and erected once stood. It now lies on the ground, weighing 82 tons and 10m tall
This small rarely frequented beach has a peculiar pink sand and with its crystal clear waters is ideal for lazing away the days
