Description

Make the acquaintance of 397 Moais! These are what remain of the famous stone erected by the ancient Rapa Nui people who filled their temples with gigantic carvings made of volcanic rocks.

Other sightings in the island include the Te Pito Kura, the largest statue in the island measuring 10 meters and 85 tons, Rano Raraku, a volcanic crater with a lagoon where the famous Moai statues were carved. The site is an outstanding example of the innovative design technology of the Rapa Nui.

Next to Te Pito Kura is the spherical stone which was named the Navel of the World. Legend has it that the large, slightly magnetized rock in the middle was brought to the Easter Island by its colonizer King Hotu matua, and that it emits spiritual power to those who lay their hands on it.

Cap off the day relaxing at the uncommonly beautiful Anakena beach. Here you can find provisions for a barbecue, several food stands and a row of restaurants. Take a dip into the lapis-lazuli colored water, lie in the soft white sand, and bask in paradise with the row of seven Moais turning their backs to the sea.
