EASTER ISLAND

Often referred to as the most remote inhabited island in the world, Easter Island lies around 2000 miles off the coast of Chile.  The first settlers to the island, the Rapa Nui, were Polynesian and it is still a puzzle how these settlers managed to arrive at such a isolated place.

Shrouded in mystery Easter Island is infamous for the iconic Moai statues. Carved from volcanic rock there are around 900 statues averaging 13 feet and 14 tons strewn across the island.  The silent giants sit in staunch testament to the island’s intriguing history and well kept secrets.  Although it is not known for sure why these statues were created or indeed why there are so many, they are thought to be built in honour of important people in the Rapa Nui’s lineage however there is no historical evidence to support this.

The most interesting of the Moai sites is the Rano Raraku quarry where the stone for the statues was mined and where the remains of around 400 statues remain at varying degrees of completon.

Although the Moai statues are the main draw to the island they are not the only reason to visit.  With diving, surfing and secluded white beaches Easter Island is also a place to relax and unwind.

The ancient archaeological sites dotted across the island can be explored by hiring a mountian bike, motorbike or car.
