“Photos at sunset, wonderful”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

So close to the main street and so easy to get to. Go several times to see the Moai in the different lights.

“Another wonderful place to see, check out at sunset!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

Five moais stand in this area, a nice walk from the middle of town! Looks over the vast ocean behind them!

“Popular to Those Who Want To See The Sunset.”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We took a taxi cab on our first day to see the sunset. We thought that we would not see many people. We were wrong. There were lots of people with the same idea and their cameras all propped up. However, we were disappointed. the sunset was not that great. It was a scenic area, though.

Beautiful view, start the exploration of the island from here and the museum nearby to educate yourself before moving on to other sites!

“Underrated! Don't miss this Moai”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Our tour didn't cover this place unfortunately. We decided to check it out ourselves. We were not overly enthusiastic because we saw Tongariki but we were pleasantly surprised.

highlights:

- Only Moai restored with the coral eyes. Trust me the impact of this Moai is way more compared to the ones of Ahu Tongariki.
- This place is under rated as Tongariki gets all the tourist folks.
- Get a cab to cover Ahu Tahai and Ahu Akivi(7 Moais facing the ocean). We paid the cab guy 20000 Chilean pesos for 1.5 hours and got dropped back at the airport.
