Honestly had I never heard about this stone before I was actually on the day tour, and it is supposed to give out so much energy you can feel it. Now, they have put a fence around it so you cannot go close anymore. However,...More

The main attraction of this place is the smooth rock surrounded by four smaller rocks. As the guide will tell you, this rock is not indigenous to the island and has magnetic properties and you can feel the energy radiating from the stone. The purpose...More

This site is a bit out of the way - but not far if you have wheels. It's not spectacular but it does invite contemplation of how what is perhaps the largest Moai now is face-down in the dirt. How the mighty fall! Important stones...More

This is a fallen Moai right beside the ocean. It is the largest Moai moved from the quarry. There isn't much to see, but it is good for a quick stop if you have a rental car.

Not much here but worth it to see the big toppled head and the old rock formations, plus it's a good place to enjoy the black rocky coast.

Bit of a journey to get to this one on the other side of the island. We tied it into a visit to Anakena beach and it worked out really well. Massive moai collapsed which is really interesting to see.

It was interesting to visit and learn about it but was certainly not the highlight of our visit to Easter Island. It was a stop on our guided tour.

Te Pito Kura is a relatively small site very near the ocean. The largest Moai ever erected can be found here, which was toppled after 1838. There are 5 stones with magnetic properties surrounded by a wall very near to the ocean. Explorers tried to...More

While Ahu Te Pito Kura is the location of the largest Moai successfully moved and erected, the fact that the Moai is laying down takes a bit away from this fact as it is difficult to actually appreciate the grandeur of this feet. The only...More
