Easter Island Map

Easter is a famous island in the southeast Pacific, the area commonly referred as Polynesia. The island is a part of Chile, after being annexted in 1888. It is a habited island, though it is only sparsely populated with a population of 5,034. And it is a small island covering only 163.6 km2, or 63.1 square miles.

So why is such an isolated, small, and sparsely populated island so famous and well-known? Well, Easter Island`s 887 "moai" statues are iconic and seen in images and tv shows all over the world. The statues were created by the Rapa Nui people between 1250 and 1500. The main Moai area is called Rano Raraku, but Moai were also transported to the outer perimeters of the island.
