  • You obviously cannot go to Easter Island without visiting this. The famous 15 Moai here cannot be missed. It is a bit of a drive to get to, but no more than 25 minutes from town.  more »
  • You'll see thousands of photos and still the place will seem magical. The sunrise there is a must-have of Easter island.
