5/5 based on 1,200+ 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.

  • The amanercer and the sunset this place is fascinating, by the colors that take the stones with the reflection of the Sun on the back or front. One of the most beautiful, exciting and mesmerising island.

  • Is incredible, a place that you can not miss. "The 15" moais are imposing, both because of its size, and for what they mean, and are in a nice place and easily accessible by car.

  • Being there is like a dream. The dimensions are impressive, and everything makes the imagination. Essential part of a great journey of initiation.
