Ahu Tongariki, Easter Island

(5/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Match the intense gaze of the 15 moai monuments staring back at you at Ahu Tongariki. Lined up in a row, as if protecting the coast against invaders, the massive monoliths represent perhaps the most iconic attraction on Easter Island. Despite damage caused by a 1960 tsunami, the restored monoliths remain as intimidating and mysterious as ever. Channel your inner creative and take some amazing photographs, playing with the angles and the light to perfectly capture all 15 monuments in a single frame. Put Ahu Tongariki on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Hanga Roa itinerary builder.

  • It is the most beautiful place to see dawn! Also if you're several days on the island, go see dawn there is a reward for the view, since none are alike. No doubt a magical place of the island

  • Really exciting see them 15 moai is which is the time of the day, but above all to the dawn, not to be missed. We arrived at 6.30 in the morning but could just enter at 7, when there was some clarity.
