This is also referred to as the "Banana Cave" because of the vegetation at the cave entrance. There is a sign and parking area for this site. The ground drops into a depression before entering the cave. In this depression are various types of tropical vegetation. Natives would use caves like these because of the protection that it offered as well as the ability to grow crops at the cave entrance. Dripping water can be heard in the cave. Be sure to bring a flashlight.

Directions: North from Hanga Roa, not far from Ahu Akivi
