02Watch the Dramatic Sunset at Hanga Roa

On any given island paradise, most sunsets will be epic and beautiful. Nonetheless, there are several opportunities on Easter Island to photograph a sundown you won't find elsewhere on the planet. Rapa Nui's only town, Hanga Roa, is home to the Tahai ceremonial complex and three altars, or ahu, bearing a total of 15 moai. Tourists flock to this site each evening to see the bright orange sun dip below the horizon behind the Ahu Vai Uri. Pick out the perfect spot on the grass and delight your senses as the sky rapidly changes colors, and the shadows slowly darken the faces of the giant moai.
