Easter Island, Chile
Best known for its mythical moai, Easter Island draws visitors keen to see the supersized statues that have stood on its shores ever since the 13th century. There are more than 900 here, imposing human figures with over-sized heads, and whilst it is these that bring most tourists to this remote spot, there’s far more to see and do here than one might at first suspect.
Visit vast volcanic craters, take a trip to a preserved stone village or spend some time on the stunning sand beaches that encircle Easter Island, the choice is yours.
For those seeking an adventure offshore, world-class diving sites beckon, whilst the seafood is fresh and delicious and the atmosphere on the island always peaceful. This perfect slice of Polynesia is one of the most remote inhabited islands on Earth.
