Easter Island
Not surprisingly, the well-publicized moai statues have overshadowed the island's other assets. Easter Island is much more than a puzzling open-air museum. History and intrigue is by far the main attraction here and is achingly prominent, but, there are other attractions to great the traveller. The island is a superb playground for action-seekers. Scuba-diving enthusiasts are treated to some of the most crystal clear waters of the world, while surfers rave about the powerful waves of the Pacific. If horse riding, trekking and hiking are more to your liking, there's no better way to discover the ancient sites than on foot or on horseback - the perfect combination of nature and culture. For those wanting a bit of relaxation thrown in, a handful of sandy beaches is also an option.
