Easter Island travel guide

Ruins · Beaches · Landmarks
Shrouded in centuries of mystery, Easter Island remains one of the world's most geographically and culturally isolated places. Just over 6,000 people call the Chilean island home, with nearly double that number of visitors arriving each year to unravel the enigma of the island's giant stone heads, known as moai. Built by the island's original inhabitants, the Rapa Nui people, the monolithic moai continue to keep watch over the windswept coastline and serve as top Easter Island tourist attractions. During your Easter Island vacation, you can explore the hilly landscape on foot, by bicycle, or on horseback.
