“Most impressive array of statues on island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

This is a must see point. They have erected about a dozen statues of varying types here. You must see this place, best photo opportunity on the island. Good parking area, and good picnic area (no tables). If you want picnic tables, go to the beach at Anakena, but this is a good place if you can eat out of your tailgate of your jeep.

“Amazing place - nothing compares!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Lovely peacful place with 15 Moai - can visit by car, quad bike etc. One of the best places to visit on the Island to see what it would have been like when all the Moai were still standing.
