The main town and capital of Chile's Easter Island, Hanga Roa serves as a base for most visitors to the island, with all explorations of Easter Island and its famous moai monoliths beginning here.
On the 8th (Thu), kick back and relax at Playa Ovahe, enjoy the sand and surf at Anakena Beach, and then steep yourself in history at Ahu Tahai. Here are some ideas for day two: take in the dramatic natural features at Orongo, then delve into the distant past at Ahu Tongariki, and then get impressive views of Rano Raraku.

Plan my Hanga Roa trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

London, UK to Hanga Roa is an approximately 24-hour flight. Traveling from London to Hanga Roa, you'll gain 6 hours due to the time zone difference. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) early enough to travel to Santiago.
