Easter Island Holidays

Holidays to spellbinding Easter Island, the world's most isolated inhabited island, are all about the imposing moai monoliths. These enigmatic, sculpted stone statues are shrouded in a mystical aura, dotting the eerie, windswept landscape in imposing rows and toppled heaps. We love the raw, magnetic power of this volcano-anchored island. The history and culture of the ancient Polynesians is achingly prominent here, weaving an intoxicating spell that is both evocative and mesmerising.

  • Motu Nui

    Easter Island holidays are your chance to see some of the world's most enigmatic stone statues. The moai, as they are called, are monolithic figures of humans carved in rock by the Rapa Nui people. The largest ahu (stone platform) on Easter Island is Ahu Tongariki. See the enduring monoliths of 15 moai standing magnificently against the barren landscape. Most of the moai are perfectly aligned to face sunset during the summer solstice. 

  • Anakena Beach

    This tiny little islet just south of Easter Island has some of the most sought after scuba diving and snorkelling waters of the world. The undisturbed waters have an abundant array of marine life darting just beneath the calm Pacific waters. Twenty metres below the surface is an intriguing moai statue, placed there for the 1994 Hollywood movie Rapa Nui.

  • Ballet Kari Kari

    Paradisiacal Anakena Beach is backed by a palm grove that rolls down a white sand beach to the calm blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. The idyllic beach is interrupted by two ahu's (stone platforms), one with a single moai and the other with six moai's. We love taking a picnic of empenadas and pisco to enjoy under the shade of the waving palms while relaxing on this heavenly beach.

  • Orongo

    For an exceptional cultural sensation, check out Easter Island's Ballet Kari Kari. This traditional show incorporates the historic folk music and dance of the people on Easter Island. The dynamic shows include the hip-shaking movements of traditional Polynesian dance. Feel the energy of the instruments and the power of dance and song throughout the show, then get up and join in the dancing.
