Easter Island

Also known by its indigenous name Rapa Nui, Easter Island is present in the Pacific Ocean with the closest island to it being 1,100 miles away while the island itself is located 2,300 miles west of South America. The Polynesian volcanic island is also classified as a World Heritage Site and its most famous for 900 statues called moai.

Moai were created by the inhabitants of Rapa Nui between the 10th and 16th centuries and are about 13 feet in height and weigh 14 tons. Scientists and researchers are yet to figure out while the inhabitants of Easter Island went through the trouble to create them and even more so how they managed to carve out these stone heads with the tools they had at the time. Researchers are also trying to figure out what happened to these inhabitants. It is thought that they traveled to Rapa Nui to start a new culture then had to leave once the island’s resources became depleted. The island is now almost barren with no resources for agriculture and such as most of its soil has been washed away and there are almost no trees.

The best place to see the moai is at the Rano Raraku National Park which is home to almost half the moai on the island. In the Rano Raraku National Park you can see them in different stages of development. The statues look inward as a symbol of protection of their people. For another glorious view of the moai watch them as the sun rises in the background at Tongariki. In Tongariki you get a view of 15 moai statues all looking inwards as the sun rises behind them creating a view you’ll never forget. For more remnants of the Rapa Nui civilization visit Papa Vaka, Ana Kai Tangata, and Orongo where you can find Rapa Nui petroglyphs which is the closest thing to written history in the Rapa Nui civilization.

If you’re tired of moai statues and want some time to relax and enjoy the nature then visit Anakena Beach. It is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island and the sand and water there are beautiful. It’s not a huge beach but that won’t be inconvenient since there aren’t many people on the island anyway.

There’s a lot we don’t know about Easter Island but what we know for certain is that it’s a beautiful place to be. It makes for a mysterious yet exquisite place to go for a vacation and disconnect from the troubles of the world.
