Ahu Akivi, Easter Island

(340+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
See the sacred Ahu Akivi, a religious site on Easter Island that contains seven moai stone figures carved between the 13th and 17th centuries. The identical human-like statues were discovered in 1955 and restored in 1960 by a team of American and Chilean archaeologists. The statues have an astronomic importance, facing the sunset during the vernal equinox and showing their backs to the sunrise during the autumnal equinox. A visit to Ahu Akivi represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Hanga Roa vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • Peaceful location. Toilet inside the store here is expensive. Try to avoid it.
