Our first stop on our day tour of Easter Island. Awesome to see the topknot with the set of 4 mini moai nearby. We spent about 20 minutes here to begin our island tour from the cruise ship.

Ahu Tahai offers the best sunset views on Easter Island. It is an archaeological site which was restored in 1974 by an American archaeologist. Ahu Tahai comprises three principal ahus(platforms) from north to south: Ko Te Riku (with restored eyes), Tahai, and Vai Ure. Visible in the distance from Tahai are two restored ahus at Hanga Kio'e. Certainly would very highly recommend visiting this tourist attraction to any traveler especially in the evening before sunset to witness the spectacular change of sky colors.

This was one of the first stop offs on our Maoi Monuments Tour carried out very well by Green Island Tours. Ahu Tahal is a special place to watch spectacular sunsets and has the only ahu with restored eyes. Tahai, comprises three principle ahu all restored by the American archaeologist Dr William Mulloy. The site is an integral part of Rapu Nui National Park, designated by UNESCO as a world heritage site. Well worth a visit.

This was the first site that we saw on Easter Island. One of the places marked by Easter Island history is Ahu Tahai. This national park was restored between the years 1967 and 1968 by the archaeologist William Mulloy. this ceremonial complex is one of the most ancient dated sites (V11 century) that includes three different Ahus (altars), which its moai has a height of 15 feet with an estimated weight of 20 tons. This platform holds 5 different moai. Between the two Ahus is found the Ahu Tahai which holds a Moai with coral eyes. Many people come here to watch the sunset also.

i was lucky to be staying very close to Ahu Tahai. it is an incredible place to watch the sunset. Unfortunately for me every night was cloudy or overcast except for my final night. My final nght was a beautiful sunset at Ahu Tahai that was tainted by a huge cruise ship that decided to place itself directly behnd Ahu Tahai and get in everyones photos (selfish cruise ships)
