The most magnificent reconstruction of a 'complete' ahu with moai on the east coast of Rapa Nui. Superb to visit at dawn to watch sun come up behind the moai.

15 moais at this spectacular ahu - the most you will find on any one platform. It's the largest ceremonial site on the island, and possibly the most photographed. Particularly as the rugged coastline can be incorporated behind. And of course there's history to be...More

This is the largest platform (ahu) with 15 statues and will take your breath away. Take a panoramic picture or go for the sunrise. Any image will be amazing.

Of all the restored Ahu (platform), this is the most complete and imposing sight. If you only visit only one Ahu, this is the one to see.

My favorite of all the moai spots on the island! This spot has 15 moais on an ahu- the most anywhere on the island. It is a 5 minute drive down the road from Rano Raraku. The most jaw dropping place on the island for...More

15 Moai lined up were quite impressive. You can see them all from many different angles. Another way to see them is from the quarry which gives a better overall view. 15 minutes is ample at the site. We went in early afternoon and the...More

This is a stunningly beautiful place. It's the largest ceremonial site on the island, and one of the oldest. The ahu and 15 moai sit on a rugged section of coastline, giving you all kinds of photo opps. It's also because this ahu has been...More
