Ten Things To Do On Easter Island
“Whether an island such as Easter Island can be considered remote is simply a matter of perspective. Those who live there, the Rapa Nui, call their homeland Te Pito Te Henua, ‘the navel of the world’. Any point on the infinite globe of the Earth can become a centre.” Judith Schalansky
1. Get there. Easter Island is one of the most remote places in the world. There is one airline that flies there which is LATAM. You can only fly there from Santiago, Chile or Papeete, Tahiti. It is six hours away from each place.
2. See the Moai. Easter Island is famous for the Moai statues. A plethora of theories surround the origins and construction of these giant, monolithic stone statues, but the truth is that they are the legacy left behind by the Rapa Nui civilization that once inhabited the island.
3.See the Moai at sunrise and sunset.
4.Hang out at the beach.
5.Hike the volcanoes.
6.See the other ruins from the Rapa Nui – the petroglyphs.
7.See a Rapa Nui cultural show. Rapa Nui are similar to the Māori.
8.Bike around the island. You can do the entire island in a day.
9.Take amazing photos.
10.Get an Easter Island Moai stamp at the Post Office (not the airport) on your passport. I’m so doing that. This is a bucket list thing for me!!!!
