Famous for this island are the Moai stone statues (onl head and throat) (UNESCO World heritage) here which can be seen all around the island, at the edge of the cliffs, facing inland.And it is famous for being the most distant inhabited island of the world - 3526km west of Chile, 4251km east of Tahiti, the next inhabited island (Pitcairn) a good 2000km away (our next stop).
