Discover the magic of one of the most remote inhabited islands in the world

The Moai Easter island is located on the east edge of the Polynesian Triangle, in the south Pacific Ocean, with a latitude of 27° 9′ 10” South, and a longitude of 109° 27′ 17” West. The closest continental point is the coast of Chile at a distance of 3,526 Km. It’s located 2,075 Km west of the Pitcairn Islands and 4,351 Km from Papeete (Tahiti) to the southwest, so that Easter Island is one of the most isolated inhabited islands in the world.

Moai Head Statue

Moai, the giant statues.
The moai or Easter Island heads or Easter Island statues represent the most important pieces of Rapa Nui art and they have become its trademark. However, despite their abundance, there are around 600 moai distributed throughout the whole island, and 397 are in the Rano Raraku quarry, there are still plenty of unanswered questions regarding these stone giants.
 
Since its “discovery” on Easter Sunday in 1722, Rapa Nui has aroused the interest of navigators, historians, scientists, and travelers from around the world. Much has been written about what is considered “the most island island”, due to its remote location in the Pacific Ocean. The gigantic volcanic stone statues, known as moai, the unscrambled writing of the Rongo Rongo symbols, and the history of its inhabitants who were about to disappear, have originated the myth of Easter Island.

Tapati Rapa Nui Festival

Tapati Rapa Nui
The Tapati Rapa Nui festival, which literally means “Rapa Nui week”, is the most important cultural festival on Easter Island, and it is celebrated every year during the first two weeks of February. This festival was born in 1968 to promote the Rapanui culture among the islanders and instill a sense of belonging within the youth.



Beaches
The Easter Island beaches are ideal for swimming all year round. The sea in this part of the Pacific Ocean is quiet with a fascinating turquoise color and the perfect temperature.

Volcanoes
Easter Island emerged as a result of the various volcanic eruptions that happened thousands of years ago in this part of the Pacific Ocean.

Caves
The flow of the lava towards the sea formed channels that, when they cooled, turned into caves. Some Easter Island caves are small and others are several hundred meters long.
