What travellers are saying
- we did the front row of the performance and the dinner prior to the show. had to admit that our dinners were quite delicious and worth the time and money. the show itself was quite well done, and very interesting. the live music and the dancing were very good and overall it was a great evening out.Written 29 November 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I had a rental vehicle and drove to this beach first. Free parking in the lot and about a 10 min. walk down to the beach. Pure paradise-super clear water in an amazing setting. Hardly anyone there-just a few locals. A true hidden gem.Written 14 March 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is a good place to see how people on Rapa Nui lived in the past. There are ruins of boat houses and fallen Moai. A fascinating place.Written 17 May 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- This attraction is another part of ancient history of Easter Island. It was probably the fashion in it’s time. Moais became a bit 'old hat', so to bring them up to date, people decided to give them 'topknots'. Puna Pau was a place with various colored volcanic rock and so became the place to quarry them. Deep red was obviously the preferred colour. The quarry is at the top of the mountain and one can climb up to see some spectacular views of the island and it’s coast which overlooks the main town of Hanga Roa. Great spot to visit even for the view of the island. Certainly very highly recommended to any traveler.Written 22 November 2020
- This was one of the first walks we took and we thoroughly enjoyed witnessing the loving leavings at the graves of the ancients, and not so ancients. This certainly has a mixed bag of symbolism; naturalism, Rapa Nui cultural, Christian elements all expressed in reverance.Written 11 February 2021
- This site is an offbeat tourist attraction in Easter Island. It is a restored village and gives a good insight into the former lives of Rapa Nui people. Certainly worth visiting with a local tour guide and very highly recommended for the offbeat traveler.Written 25 November 2020
- Lots of beautiful flowers, sculptures. Wonder the scrolling paths and let yourself get lost. The pictures say it all.Written 19 February 2020
- This cave is a very short walk from the car park. No need to take jackets or torches here. It is a beautiful collection of cave paintings, in an exposed, open crevice facing off into the Pacific Ocean. Certainly worth considering.Written 25 November 2020
- Located near the western part of Easter Island, close to soccer field and the port, it is not really a beach. However this bay offers nice scenic views and is worth visiting around sunset.Written 25 November 2020
- learning about the meaning and movement of the Moai is a good educational visit for young and old alike. if it were not difficult to get here I would returnWritten 1 April 2020
- This is by the side of the road, you must pay attention or you'd miss it. It was used as a trophy for warriors and was carried around the islands. You can imagine the sound when you blow into the holes.Written 23 September 2019
- Ahu The Peu is located on the the north coast. It is an unrestored archeological site, so you can see how platforms looked before being restored. It used to be a large settlement, still foundations of boat houses can be seen. The actual platform is severely destroyed. Very interesting were the half-buried moais. Quite significant is a large wall, which reminds of the 'Inca' technique used in Ahu Vinapu, though less sophisticated.
Sea views are beautiful and quite dramatic. There was also a number of wild horses around during the time we visited. We approached from direction Ahu Akivi: take the road left just before the checkpoint to Akivi; soon you will reach another checkpoint for the Te Ana cave circuit (also 3 caves are situated nearby, worth visiting). From here you can continue walking or cycling north to Ahu Te Peu. Another option is coming from town, along the north coast. We took this road back. It is basically only possible to walk, cycling is very difficult because of the road quality. If you are an experienced mountainbiker, you can perhaps do it (my husband managed to cycle it all). If you continue walking to the east, you can do a long (5-6 hour) walk ending at Anakena beach, discovering the untouched north coast.
This is perhaps not the most impressive archeological site of the island, but worth a visit if you have the time.Written 15 November 2018
