Rapa Nui, as the locals call their island, was recently awarded the TripAdvisor “Travellers Choice Award” as one of the 10 best islands in the world and the most beautiful in South America. This comes at no surprise: Rapa Nui, with its famous stone “moai”, has preserved much of its culture over the years due to its isolation, and it also offers a unique landscape and remote beaches. At about 3800km / 2,400mi from the mainland, Easter Island is one of the most remote places on earth. Rapa Nui National Park was founded in 1935 to preserve the island’s archaeological sites, and today almost the entire island seems to be an open-air museum, with countless “moai”, cult sites, and ancient cave dwellings open to the public. The island is also listed on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage List. A visit to Rapa Nui is truly an unforgettable experience!
