Beaches · Ballets · Landmarks
The main town and capital of Chile's Easter Island, Hanga Roa serves as a base for most visitors to the island, with all explorations of Easter Island and its famous moai monoliths beginning here. Located between two extinct volcanoes, the harbor town has around 3,300 residents, representing nearly 90 percent of the island's total population. Likewise, the majority of the island's businesses, homes, and services cluster here. Although vacations in Hanga Roa usually focus on the world-famous archaeological sites elsewhere on the island, the town itself still possesses plenty of charm, with a fishing harbor and a couple of nice local beaches.

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.
