Came here earlhy and had the place to ourselves. Its an iconic destination and has many snapshot worthy pics. The best thing I found was the boat ramp and the wild horses roaming about. Sunset is amazing.

Considering that pretty much the only thing that most people know about Easter Island is that it has the statues, it was really amazing to go and see Tongariki since it is by far the most impressive Ahu on the island. Seeing all 15 moais standing, some of them wearing the pukao, with the volcano and the ocean in the... More

Come here very early in the morning or late in the day. Sunrise and sunsets are beautiful from this site as you can see a big chunk of the island.

This is the iconic Easter Island destination. The moai are majestic and the location on the edge of the island with rocky islets in the background is breathtaking

These 15 statues near the quarry were swept away by a tidal wave in the sixties and have since been restored. It is the largest collection of Moai on the island. Terrific photo ops, amazing details from the base, the hands, the features, super cool. When you tour the quarry area, check out the view of these statues from the... More

Everyone tells you to go here for sunrise and they are right. It is well worth it! However, going here for sunset is also incredibly beautiful. There are not a lot of people and it's quite an incredible sight.

We saw this Ahu twice - the first time during the day, as part of the tour of the island and the second time at sunrise. We loved both times and, due to the difference in light, if you have time while visiting Easter Island it is worth going twice. For the sunrise trip you need to plan to be... More
