This is such a beautiful place by the ocean. A must visit at Easter island 🗿. Also a place where you can buy souvenirs from the local Rapa Nuis. They even gave me a free key chain with my purchase :-)

We were there before sunrise on the morning of the lunar eclipse Jan.31, 2018, and there couldn't have been a more perfect location. The moon was occulted just as it was setting into the sea behind the one moai on the island that has eyes,...More

Ahu Tahai is easy walking distance up the coast from Hanga Roa. It is a great first introduction to Moai, and makes a lovely sunset photo.

Ahu Tahai has the nice eyes and I do think it's better in the morning light rather than sunset (I came back the next morning for a better photo), plus there are other moai, house ruins and harbours in the area. This area is an...More

This place needs more than one visit. If all you are interested in is taking photos then go in the morning when the sun will be behind you. Here you can find the Moai with the red hat and the coral eyes But you must...More

Many reviews write about the great sunset views from here but we were here late in the afternoon and just had the sun shining in our faces the whole time. It made viewing the moai uncomfortable and photography very difficult. My recommendation is to visit...More

this is located right next to the town. The Moai Plataform close by and the only Moai that has the eyes, the coral eyes.

A quick stop here to listen to a bit more history and see the one moai with eyes painted on. Another lovely photo ops

Great spot to go for sunset views. Came here our first night on Easter island and there’s quite a crowd that turn up. Worth getting there early to spend at least an hour over the actual sunset time.

By day we saw (somewhat) wild horses running in front of the ahus/moais. Beautiful ocean backdrop. If at all possible, watch the sunset here. There is a nice restaurant where you can eat outdoors while you watch the sunset. You can be entertained by the...More

Hi!) Mataveri airport is 7 kilometres from the city centre. The city is very small and the traffic is very small. So you'll have 20 minutes to get to the airport.
