Ana Kai Tangata, Hanga Roa

Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web
White-capped waves crash against the rocky shoreline near Ana Kai Tangata, concealing this hidden cave area. The cave is accessible at low and high tide and affords magnificent views of the coastline. A brief climb down the steps brings visitors to the cave's entrance, and further exploration reveals red and white drawings of birds on the rocky surface. The drawings were done with natural pigments and animal fat, but the cave's humidity has greatly hindered their preservation. The cave is believed to have been a meeting place for athletes taking part in the swimming competitions of the local Birdman cult.

  • nearby caves Park of CONAF, of easy access but that highlight more if there is an island guide that tell the story of what there is, what they were, and the drawings on the walls.

  • Enchanting cave with ancient paintings. The stairs down are somewhat steep but in good condition. Park next to the park and hotel. 
  • Without a doubt one of the most beautiful views the island, offering... The silence of the cave, broken only by the singing of the birds and the pounding of the waves against the rocks, also the most wonderful music that occur to me!
