Easter Island Sights

Puna Pau

  • Geological Site

Fodor's Review

Scoria, the reddish stone used to make the topknots for the moai, was once excavated at this quarry. About two dozen finished topknots are still here. The views of the island from the top of the hill are well worth the short climb.
