Easter Island (Polynesian: Rapa Nui and Spanish: Isla de Pascua) is a Polynesian island, famous for its 887 monumental statues called moai.  These figures, carved from rock, were created by the early Rapa Nui people of Easter Island centuries ago.  The moai are archeological features that represent the rise and the fall of this Polynesian civilisation.

Easter Island is one of the most remote islands in the world, and, as such, it should be on everyone’s lists of places to visit before you die.  Visiting Easter Island will be an experience of a lifetime, as you try to uncover the mysteries associated with the giant moai.
