Match the intense gaze of the 15 moai monuments staring back at you at Ahu Tongariki.

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.

  • Watch the sunrise at Ahu Tongariki is a shocking experience, against those gigantic statues, with the sea as a backdrop, see how lights up the sky and the clouds with the first rays of Sun, really nobody should miss this magical moment.
