Ahu Akivi, Easter Island
(4.3/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Not approaching the bar that there are nearby: there are unpleasant posters: 500 pesos each question, etc.. On the road isn't signposted detour if you come from Hanga Roa.

  • 7 moais are the only ones that are looking to the sea. And a beautiful place full of culture is, peace and tranquility. They are 7 MOAI that represent those explorers of King Hotu Matua to know if the island of Rapa Nui (great earth) was habitable. It is a place that should be visited and is beautiful.

  • Peaceful location. Toilet inside the store here is expensive. Try to avoid it.
  • The only moais on the island that are looking out towards the ocean. The roads to get to these ones are pretty poor but all good in a 4x4.
  • pooper nnnnnnnnoooooooooo by day
  • Not the best on the island
  • This is not the location for Ahu Akivi; this is the side of the Orongo crater. The correct coordinates are: -27° 6' 53.48", -109° 23' 41.87" Google: can we edit or delete this location?
