These were really good as there was so much detail to see. There were some tourists here who did not respect the spirituality of the site but the site was large enough to get away from them.

This is not a compulsory visit if you Don’t have the time as Tahai & tongariki are much better. However, still a nice visit if it’s part of your accommodation package.

These are supposed to be the 7 explorers who were the first to arrive on the island. They were placed here to overlook a large village (no longer there). Very cool. There is a small restaurant nearby that may be open.

It seems that the orientation of these Moai is distinctly different to all the others - related to the oral history of settlement and to marking the seasons.

The small stature of the statues is alleviated by having such a nice group of 7 of them looking out to the ocean. Definitely better with sun on their faces, which is probably after 3pm in summer. There's a marked road from here to Maunga...More

These Moai were the first to be preserved and are a lot smaller than the others that you will see around the island. They are also different as they face the sea. This is because they are supposed to look over the village they protect-...More

once you realized how difficult was to put together the Moai standing up on a plataform you get amazed by what you see. That site is about 13 k from the place that the Moais were actually build in. The only Platafor that the Moais...More

Only visited here shortly at the end of a horse ride. Wish we were able to stay longer as it’s a beautiful spot seeing the moai standing very well preserved.

in 1960 were the statues at Ahu Akivi, it was constructed in the 15th century. These moais are different from the others: they are positioned away from the coast and they are looking towards the ocean rather than the land. The group - like others...More

This is an interesting site to visit. These seven moai are the only seaward facing ones. They are considered to be the explorers.

I wouldn't recommend for you to do this. If you're looking for a nice sunset setting, I'd rather recommend Atahai, just (south) outside Hanga Roa, close to the cemetery. In fact, many say this is the best place to watch a... More
