Ahu Akivi is the moai platform that is inland and faces the ocean, unlike most other moai who face inland from the ocean perimeter. Ahu Akivi is definitely worth a visit and a unique moai site. Try to go there early morning or late afternoon,...More

Nothing out of the ordinary, once you have seen many moais, except for the inland location. A nice sidetrip, if you have the time.

The seven moaïs are impressive. The site was restored with precision. The moaïs are facing inland because they represent the seven explorers that where sent by the king (think polynesia) to discover the island. One of the most interesting site on the island. Worth your...More

These are only moabs situated inland, instead of along the seashore. These are explorers. A good place to visit for nice pictures. Amazing!

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
