This line up of 15 Moai backs up to a cove. Even sans statues, it is a lovely spot. And for as far as you can see in any direction, there is no development of any kind. That is one element that greatly surprised me,...More

Here are fifteen moais, all shapes and sizes, neatly lined up in a row. There is something rather grand and dignified about this place. All part of the great Easter Island experience.
