15 moai on an ahu, a moai on the ground and another on the hill, all with the Pacific Ocean in the background. What else is there to say? Spectacular!

“What's not to like?”

It's an incredible place. A must see. A visit at sunrise is well worth getting up early for.

“Stunning, Awesome, Outstanding and Unforgettable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012

We visited Ahu Tongariki twice during our 4 days in Rapa Nui: the first with a tour, the second at dawn by ourselves. If you are in Rapa Nui DON'T miss it, you will bring the feelings and the emotions for all the rest of your life! An organized tour is good, but then if you can come by yourselves and deeply enjoy the sun rising up behind the Moai.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

This is an amazing place that can not be described in words. It is amazing to go at any hour of the day. I have been there really early in the morning to take photos of sun rise, I have been there at noon, mid-morning, in the afternoon and even at night during full moon to take photos of the moais. If you have time, check out the petrography, be careful not to step on them, they are not well marked and are already very eroded. Note that there is no bathroom at this site.
