“Great at sunset”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Walking distance from Hanga Roa beach and most hotels in the center área. It will be good to visit Tahai complex with a guide for a better understand of all you see but it´s a place you can go whenever you want during the day. Don´t miss the sunset in Tahai, at this time many people go there to enjoy the end of the aftrenoon.

“Good introduction”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

This is the first place that everyone from the plane seems to go to when they arrive. It is just beyond the edge of town past the dive shops. The site is a good introduction and has a lot more historical impact than people realize - we also came back here with a guide and realized how much value having a guide can add to an attraction. It's also a nice place for sunset.

“Great place to get your first "statues" under your belt...”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

As you arrive in Hanga Roa, you will no doubt come upon these first Moai's as you stroll along the waterfront on the outskirts of town...

“Walk here from town for your first Moai experience”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Maybe 15-20 minutes from town just head to the sea and turn right and follow the paths. There is more to see than just the Moai and watch out for random piles of stones as some historic and not well marked, you don't want to be told off by the park ranger that wanders around.

As a first hit these are impressive but the other sites are better, not that you shouldn't do them all!

“Great sunsets!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Our first evening that we arrived we watched the sunset behind Ahu Tahai. It was incredible and a 5 minute walk from town! Highly recommend!
