Ancient Statues, Volcanic Craters, And Laid-Back Charm
If you want to get away from it all, you can’t do better than Easter Island, the most isolated inhabited isle on earth. It has a relaxed, Polynesian appeal, epitomized by mellow Hanga Roa, its only town. Easter Island is most famous for its giant statues, called moais; hundreds are scattered around the island. Visit the dramatic Rano Rakura crater, where they were quarried, and Ahu Tongariki, featuring the biggest collection of standing moais.
