Located nearly 2,200 miles from Chile’s mainland, Easter Island is one of the most secluded areas on earth that attracts visitors for its abundant mystical, human-figured structures. A UNESCO World Heritage site, Easter Island boasts almost 900 monumental stone-carved statues called Moai created by the Rapa Nui inhabitants during the 13th-16th centuries. Featuring an oversized head and hollow eyes, these enigmatic stone structures reflect the history of a bygone Polynesian culture. However, Easter Island is much more than that; the island has volcanic craters and two dramatic white-sand beaches, offering fabulous diving, snorkeling and surfing experiences. Explore this isolated island on a horseback ride, and on its superb beaches. If traveling in early February, you can catch the magnificent Tapati Rapa Nui festival, a fortnight-long celebration of the ancient Rapa Nui culture.
