The trail to this cave was blocked, so you could see the opening to the cave. You cannot see the paintings. There is a great view of the ocean cliffs, but not much more than that.

Quick walk down to the cliffs and there’s a track down to the cave which has interesting artwork inside. It’s not very well sign posted, but apparently you’re not meant to go down there as it’s dangerous. Visit at your own peril!

As caves go Ana Kai Tangata is less than impressive, being basically a shallow undercut in a short cliff wall on the cost, and if it was not for the paintings that are in the cave, no one would bother to visit this location at...More

We really liked this visit. Not as spectacular as some of the attractions, but this was a little gem with a very colorful coastal cliff view in the distance, beautiful breaking waves, lava tubes and rock paintings in a lava cave. We really enjoyed it...More

My wife and I visited this cave during our time on Rapa Nui. The steps going down to the cave and coming up from the cave are steep and a bit rocky. Just take your time and it is well worth a visit. The cave...More

My only regret is that I didn't time a visit to watch the sunset from the cliff top. I visited here twice - once alone by bicycle (within easy reach of town) and again as part of a guided tour. The ceremonial cave was used...More

Only a few minutes from the main town, Ana Kai Tangata known by the locals as "the cannibal cave" has an interesting story: this from an article I read online: In 1914, when Katherine Routledge visited these caves for the first time, she found many...More

Enchanting cave with ancient paintings. The stairs down are somewhat steep but in good condition. Park next to the park and hotel.

I went to this place right before the sunset on a sunny day with some clouds in July. The sea waves kept hitting the cliff and the light of the sun makes the place so beautiful. However, when I walked down the stairs down to...More
