Ahu The Peu is located on the the north coast. It is an unrestored archeological site, so you can see how platforms looked before being restored. It used to be a large settlement, still foundations of boat houses can be seen. The actual platform is severely destroyed. Very interesting were the half-buried moais. Quite significant is a large wall, which reminds of the 'Inca' technique used in Ahu Vinapu, though less sophisticated. Sea views are beautiful and quite dramatic. There was also a number of wild horses around during the time we visited. We approached from direction Ahu Akivi: take the road left just before the checkpoint to Akivi; soon you will reach another checkpoint for the Te Ana cave circuit (also 3 caves are situated nearby, worth visiting). From here you can continue walking or cycling north to Ahu Te Peu. Another option is coming from town, along the north coast. We took this road back. It is basically only possible to walk, cycling is very difficult because of the road quality. If you are an experienced mountainbiker, you can perhaps do it (my husband managed to cycle it all). If you continue walking to the east, you can do a long (5-6 hour) walk ending at Anakena beach, discovering the untouched north coast. This is perhaps not the most impressive archeological site of the island, but worth a visit if you have the time.
