Stunning achievement

This any shows the great achievements of the historic Rapa Nuians as well as the teams that restored them to the ahu platforms. The setting is stunning as well

I recommend to visit Tongariki during summer time. As most of the historical sites in the island, you´ll find moais, too. It´s not as to go swimming, because of the brave waves.

15 Moai stand on an ahu with one Moai lying further away - showing how powerful a tsunami is. There are examples of vegetable gardens here and this place is quite impressive as the Moai are all different, some wearing topknots, varying sizes and facial features.

Evocative sight and one of the most impressive of all the impressive sights on the island. Can be seen from the quarry which is behind it up on the hill.

We hired a car in Hanga Roa and toured the island by ourselves and were lucky enough to be the only people at the amazing site of Ahu Tongariki. It's worth mentioning that the view of the Moai from Ranu Raraku is... More

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.
