One stop of your tour

With 15 impressive moai, this is certainly a place in which you must and will stop during your tour. Facing east, many people like to watch the sun rising there among the moai.

Ahu Tongariki is probably the most known site of Rapa Nui, one of the first images that comes to your mind when you think of the island. But even if you know what you're going to see, once you are there you realize that any description, any word can really tell what it is. Ahu Tongariki... this incredible platform with... More

You can't just see one site without the other. Easter Island has an impressive history and the archeological remnants that were left behind are astonishing! Bring a good hat and lots of sunscreen. There aren't many trees in Easter Island for shade.

There is no doubt that this something you must see on Rapa Nui but first you must visit the nearby quarry to understand how the moai were constructed and to wonder at why so many statues were unfinished.

Moai were all restored in the 90s afer a Tsunami in 1960 destroyed the site. Very impressive and located next to the Quarry where 98% of all Moai were created. The quarry is a must visit to really see the scale and look at how they were carved out of the side of the volcano.

Do not miss this place, especially during the sunrise which was told to me by the hotel staff. I recommend spending some alone time and absorb the atmosphere and scenery.

Better than you imagined, Tongariki offers an Ahu with 15 Moai, a kneeling Moai, a fallen Moai, the Famed National Geographic group of Moai, a quarry and a quite breathtaking rocky coastline. You cannot beat it. I kept on saying "more Moai!"

You must go there for sunrise! This site is grandiose (15 moai) and the atmosphere is so special at sunrise... even with 50 people around it's so quiet... people are hypnotized by the sunrise show... The light is also good for pictures late afternoon. You will see lots of horses grazing on this site.
