This is definitely worth the visit, but this site is not nearly as exciting as Ahu Tongariki, Ahu Nau Nau (Anakena Beach), Rano Raraku, or Ahu Tahai. However, you can easily fit this site in with Ana Te Pahu cave, as they are very close...More

This ahu is about 10 k. inland, which is different from other ones on the island, which are all near the sea. It has 7 moais apparently facing the sea, but there are the vague remains of a village between the ahu and the sea...More

This was the first of the Rapa Nui moai sites to be restored, taking place in the 1960s. It is another lovely spot to visit, made special by its tranquility.

This site which is not on the coast is interesting , in the fact the the Moai (all 7 of them) face the sea! the only ones on the island to do so! All of the Moai here are approximately the same size. It is...More

Only a few ahu that were built in the interior of the island and this is the most important and elaborate platform of all of them. The 7 moai look out at see but in fact they look towards a formerly nearby village. Ahu Akivi...More

These were really good as there was so much detail to see. There were some tourists here who did not respect the spirituality of the site but the site was large enough to get away from them.

This is not a compulsory visit if you Don’t have the time as Tahai & tongariki are much better. However, still a nice visit if it’s part of your accommodation package.

These are supposed to be the 7 explorers who were the first to arrive on the island. They were placed here to overlook a large village (no longer there). Very cool. There is a small restaurant nearby that may be open.

It seems that the orientation of these Moai is distinctly different to all the others - related to the oral history of settlement and to marking the seasons.

The small stature of the statues is alleviated by having such a nice group of 7 of them looking out to the ocean. Definitely better with sun on their faces, which is probably after 3pm in summer. There's a marked road from here to Maunga...More

I wouldn't recommend for you to do this. If you're looking for a nice sunset setting, I'd rather recommend Atahai, just (south) outside Hanga Roa, close to the cemetery. In fact, many say this is the best place to watch a... More
