Ahu Tahai, Easter Island

4.8
#4 of 11 in Historic Sites in Easter Island
Get a close look at three altars of the Moai when you visit Ahu Tahai. The attraction actually encompasses all three altars of Moai that are close together and near the village of Orongo, all found in a large green field. Take time to sit on the grass and relax after your day on the island. Try to visit at sunset for the best photographic moments of the altars and the sea.

  • This site is the closest to the main town and within the walkable distance from the Main Street. There is no gate or guards who ask you for tickets. Beautiful sunset site - you should come at the right time! It can get pretty windy too.
  • great place for sunset i went there twice during my trip with my friends and all the time i brought wine to watch sun go down. so well it is best place for having wine and watching sunset.
  • You can see the whole spectrum of Moai in this area - some with eyes, some with hats, some broken, some whole.
  • 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.
