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.

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

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
