Poike, Easter Island

4.5
#9 of 10 in Parks in Easter Island
Poike is one of three main extinct volcanoes that form Rapa Nui (Easter Island) (a Chilean island in the Pacific Ocean). At 370 metres, it is the island's second highest point after Terevaka.Poike forms the eastern headland of Rapa Nui, and there is an abrupt cliff "the Poike ditch" across the island marking the boundary between flows from Terevaka and Poike. Poike last erupted between 230,000 and 705,000 years ago in the Pleistocene, and as the oldest of Easter Island's three volcanoes is the most weathered with relatively stoneless soil.

  • We went to see a crater like Orongo. It predicted 1 h 30 walk go and the same for the return. About. Motivated, we went to the top. Disappointment. No real crater, but rather the old holes. While the panoramas are splendid and allow you to see the whole island. Walk not essential but interesting when same.

Where to stay in Hanga Roa

The main urban area on the island, Hanga Roa houses the vast majority of Easter Island's accommodations. While the number of choices remains pretty limited considering the island's popularity, the range of lodgings suits a variety of travelers, from budget-conscious backpackers to those seeking luxury. Relaxed guesthouses and hostels provide decent rooms to get your head down for the night after a long day's exploration. Eco-lodges and more exclusive hotels tend to be positioned outside of the main urban area, providing airport pick-up services, ocean views, and swimming pools.
