One of my favorite travel destinations that was on my bucket list for 45 years before I stopped making excuses and just did it! Easter Island did not disappoint me. Learn more about this interesting island.
The only original statue on Easter Island that has both topknot and eyes. The eyes are not original but show how all the Moai must have appeared once. You can see this Moai at Tahai on the edge of town.
This group of statues at Anakena Beach on Easter Island still retain their topknots. These statues are in a better than average condition because they were protected by a covering of wind-blown sand until they were restored and placed back upright again.
The mystical round stone at Easter Island. If you place a compass over it, the compass will go crazy trying to find directions. The local Rapa Nui people believe that this stone has some healing powers.
