This site was my favorite. We visited the last week of September and really had it to ourselves. So hard to imagine how they ever moved these heavy statues from the mountain down to the coast. Fascinating island!

These 8 Moais represent the first 8 inhabitants of the Island. They are the only ones that face the sea meaning that it showed how they arrived. Not a busy site so good to visit.

We arrived when there was no one else around. We had a picnic here in front of the statues. Near the entrance is a path leading up to the highest point of Easter Island. It's a gentle hike, and at the top is an extinct...More

Most of the moai are located near the coast, but Ahu Akivi is inland and feature 8 nearly identical statues .By the time you get here, you'll be tired of taking moai pictures, but take some anyway. You'll be glad when you get home.

The only Moai that face out to sea since all the other face into the island. The story of it is quite interesting.

This is the only 7 ahu where the moai are facing the ocean rather than the village, this one looks especially stunning later in the day. Thank for the resoration and all of us get to view them nicely.

One of the better restored Moai sites in a spectacular setting near the coast. You should walk completely around the Moai and then cross the field in front of them to get a good overlook of the coastline.

The island is magical and its beauty incomparable. The moai statutes add a mysterious quality to the landscape.

There aren’t enough words to express the way I feel about this place. Just sitting and staring for as long as possible makes me a very happy camper!

The only Moai looking out to sea. There are seven Moai and many believe that these represent the seven explorers that were sent out to find the island. This is a bit odd as these Moai were put in place well into the period of...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
