The most remote and mystical piece of land in the Pacific Ocean is Easter Island (or, as the natives call it, Rapa Nui)

 

 

It is famous all over the world for its stone statues with stern faces - moai statues. For more than a century, archaeologists and anthropologists have been trying to unravel the mysteries of the lost island civilization. But the evidence about its culture and customs is very sketchy. The mystical flair of Rapa Nui beckons thousands of tourists here. It is unlike any other familiar tropical island. You will not find romantic landscapes in the style of bounty. But this fact is more than redeemed by the sunset views of the ocean, against which the ancient stone idols are towering. Also, here is Te Pito Kuru - "the center of the Earth" - an amazing place of power of the vanished civilization.
