Inspirock Rating:
4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web
On a rugged stretch of coastline, find Ahu Te Pito Kura, the largest moai ever made, and one of the few whose name has not been lost over time. Unfortunately, the monolith faces the floor, having been toppled along with the other moai during the Rapa Nui civil wars. Still, the monument's size is impressive--10 m (33 ft) tall and weighing around 70 tons--as are the stories that surround him. Located close by in the same site, find a large, polished oval rock, surrounded by a low stone wall. Its high iron content confuses compasses, and some believe it to be charged with a powerful mystical energy. With our online itinerary creator, Hanga Roa attractions like Ahu Te Pito Kura can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Stunning magnetic stone which is again crazy compasses. It is more fun than an attraction. But the environment is worth the efforts.

  • Few visitors come to this place. The main attraction is that it is next to the sea. One more circuit stop

  • The place is wonderful and magical. They say to put your hands on the circular stones, makes to the place. If you are going without a tourist guide, it is difficult to reach the site, because it is not. Only people you should see is where to find out.
