Great hike through pastoral fields along a mud track road in the country to a drop in cave to view a cave opening over the sea. We had a great stroll but didn't drop down, claustrophobia.

The journey is adventurous from the parking and is then about 20 minutes on foot. The entry into the cave is for individuals with decent physical fitness. Certainly one will need a flashlight inside the cave. Located just north of Hanga Roa, this attraction is certainly worth considering for any traveler.

Ana Kakenga is an awe inspiring cave just north of Hang Roa. Climb down into the entrance to see the end of the cave, a hole that opens onto a sheer cliff face - very high up. Walk aorund the headland after to see a view of the cliff face with the hole perched high on the cliff.

Very cool spot. The entrance is super narrow and you cannot visit this without a flashlight. The windows are about 25 meters from entrance.

After a thirty minute walk from the entryof the park, looking at your left, you will see a tiny entrance among the other rocks. That's the Ana Kakenga cave. Enter carefully, because it's a bit narrow. Take a lantern with you, because there's a little dark patch inside, which can be a bit tricky and slippery (so, good antiderrapant shoes are also recommendable). The two openings offer a stunning view to the sea. Really worthwhile!

This was a short, easy hike with not much altitude change to a lava tube...which was quite a lot of fun to crawl down into and then walk to the 'windows' to the ocean. It is dark at first, though, so you'll want a light...your phone is enough, but you will want a light on the way in & out for just a short bit.

The hike is scenic along the ocean and through a herd of cows...

Our guide the previous day, Nuku does a half or full day cave & lava tube tour that would be great if you were on the island multiple days. We found our guide through our lodge, Kona Koa, they booked him at $120 for the day, we provided the transport...we recommend both Nuku and Kona Koa! But definitely use a guide for at least a day here!

A short and pleasant walk is necessary to get to this location and the the cave is a little cramped at the entrance. Be sure to wear good shoes to avoid slipping on the wet rock inside. Not a huge cave complex, more of a short passageway to the opening overlooking the ocean, but still worth the effort for yet another beautiful location on this awesome island

You need a park pass to enter than it is a decent hike to the cave, this cave has 2 openings with awesome views.
If you are claustrophobic don't do it, narrow opening to get in than it opens up and at the end you are rewarded with 2 fantastic views!!
Bring a torch.

Went on a long walk on the west coast of the island and this is en-route, entrance is small and you will definitely need a torch. Mind your head. You need to be fairly agile to get in there.

You can drive up to the starting point, where there is an entrance gate and guard house. The road is dirt and full of pot holes, need a jeep. From the guard house, you must walk about 20 minutes to the dave. It was used as shelter during the tribal warring period. Inside the cave, the floor is muddy and eventually leads to the ocean cliff. I would not recommend this cave for young children.
