Ana Te Pahu is also known as the “cave of the bananas” since there is a big amount of that tree in the entrance. Ana Te Pora Volcanic Cave whose main entrance is about 100 meters from the parking lot. This cave it was used as both a shelter and a ceremonial place in ancient times. Ana Kakenga: Volcanic cave where the lava flowed into the sea and left two mouths or 'windows ' leading directly to the cliff. Also known as the 'cave of the two windows.' this cave has a length of about 50 meters. It served as “kionga” or place of refuge in ancient times. Ahu Te Peu: Ahu Te Peu is an area with a high archeological value. Since it hasn’t been restored it is possible to observe the site exactly as the old inhabitants who, after internal wars, knocked down the moais left it. There used to be a village there.
