Easter Island-Rapa Nui, the world's most isolated inhabited island is also the most mysterious. Located in South Pacific 2400 miles southwest of Concepcion, Chile Easter Island has been described as the world's largest open-air museum.

All across the rocky lava strewn landscape are the fallen monuments of a long gone civilization. Giant eyeless statues stare out across the hills or lay face down in the dirt not having moved since being toppled over 300 years ago. This site aims to give you a visual overview of the island and brief introduction to it's fascinating history. For more information on all aspects of Easter Island including how to get there please visit the Easter Island Home Page. (I'll repeat this link at the end of this site)
