  • The sunset is amazing! It's also a great place to see the stars at night. It's a few minutes walking from the center
  • One of the few moai displays that has an eye. Best time of day hands down is to go at sunset.
  • One of the most accessible set of maois as you can easily walk there. Sunset is nice but can get chilly. Start of the walk for other sites.
  • One of my favorite locations on the island. Easy walk from downtown, just past the cemetery. Very secluded and beautiful place for sunset.
  • A lot of people tell me the heads aren't alive. Buddy, I know a living person when I see one. People talk a lot about them though: I hope they don't get a BIG HEAD. But seriously folks,
