What Will You Do

AHU AHAHANGA

Located on the southeast coast of the island it is considered as an emblematic place. In this place we can understand how the village was arranged in relation to the ceremonial centre or ahu. Seeing the giants on their backs and on their foreheads on the ground is a great experience.

AHU TONGARIKI

Located opposite to Rano Raraku this is the largest platform from all of the reconstructed on the island. The ahu Tongariki is the most imposing moai platform in the island. This altar has fifteen visible standing statues overlooking the island with their backs to the Pacific Ocean.

RANO RARAKU

This is the only volcanic cone tuff quarry existing on the island. This material allowed the construction of the moai on a larger scale. Rano Raraku houses the quarry where the moai were built and from where they were moved to the ahu (ceremonial platforms) in the island.

TE PITO KURA

With 11 meters long and about 90 tons weight here we find the largest moai transported from Rano Raraku: Ahu o Paro. Next to this Ahu we find the famous rounded stone called Te Pito 'o te Henua. According to tradition this stone was brought to the island by the ancestors.

ANAKENA

This beach is characterized by warm turquoise waters and coral sand. It is the main beach of the island and used to be the ancestral residence of the Miru Araki royal family. The ahu Nau Nau is undoubtedly one of the most accomplished Ahu of the island because of the refinement of its moai.
