Fabulous statues reconstructed from historical evidence. They really are a sight to behold but it is a shame that the tour company we went with seemed to arrived everywhere the same time as all the others so there were people everywhere and many had no...More

Ahu Tongariki is The Highlight of a visit to Easter Island. This group of restored moai stare toward land on the edge of the sea, guarding their people. They dwarf today's human visitors. They are truly awesome. I could have spent all day, from sunrise...More

One of the highlights while visiting Easter Island. The ocean and the sun make this place even nicer when it is visited in the right moment.

It’s very impressive. Also for sunrise. Best daytime visit in the afternoon. The ocean with is blue waters and the craters make it even better.

One of the best sunrises that i've ever seen! Espetacular, i loved, in the winter, you have to go about 7 ou 7:30 am, because the sun appears about 8 o'clock. If you do not get the sun, it totally worth come back another day.

This has to be one of the most unreal experiences of one's life! No amount of watching photos & videos can prepare you for the first time your eyes land on these megaliths. The best time to go there is during sunrise, and the road...More

One of the premier sites on Easter Island, Tongariki features 15 massive Moai staues (one weighs in at 86 tons!) on an equally massive Ahu pedestal (the largest on the island). Facing inland from their coastal perch, these Moai are a very popular site for...More

We spent 7 days on Easter Island, actively doing activities and seeing sites every single day. And this is the most impressive attraction. Seeing the 15 statues side-by-side is awe-inspiring. I think this is one of the most special sites I've seen in the world....More

This is the place that is recommended for a sunrise spectacular, ideally with the sun rising behind the Moai. Of course that is only relevant during a small portion of the year, since all the Moai face towards sunset during the summer solstice. Never-the-less, with...More
