I'm not sure what's a part of Ana Kakenga, but going north, you will first find the cave that has two outlets overlooking the sea. The entrance is in a small depression 20 metres from the gate and much of the cave is quite narrow...More

The Ana Kakenga cave is one of three caves along a trail that basically runs between the Ahu Akivi site and a point that is North of the Museum. The information that we found before visiting indicated that these were all accessible by road, but...More

This is a very interesting and historic site, but to go in you will want a flashlight and to watch your head. It was used to hide out, and you can see why once you’re inside!

Not around the corner, but if you're not afraid of a brisk walk (you can get there on your mountain bike) it's a nice experience. Bring a torch. Not recommended for people with claustrophobia.

This is a cool little place along the walking/biking trail. I am glad we ventured into the caves to take a look. The entrance was a little hard to locate as it wasn't well marked. If you are in the caves be careful of hitting...More

It's a comfortable walk to the entrance to this lava tube which is a vertical hole in the ground. It does get very dark and ceiling is low. I managed to bloody my head a couple times on the way in and out. There are...More
