Easter Island Things to Do: 304 reviews and 693 photos
This cave has a fantastic setting. It begins with a very narrow entrance that will horrify some claustrophobic people. Yet, it does open up into a a lava tube. Once inside, two lights become visible. These are the two windows of the cave. They have views straight to the ocean. Below the windows are dropoffs to the rocky coast. This is a very photogenic area. The only drawback is that the cave is not necessarily easy to find. On the winding dirt road from Tahai, it can be found in the vicinity of a small islet off of the shore. The road curves at a point where this rock is directly ahead of you. At the curve is the unassuming cave entrance. It is small and will leave some wondering if this is actually it. I guess this is one advantage of mountain biking. By going slower, the entrance was easier to see. Some tours also stop here, although I had the place to myself at the time.
Directions: Road north from Tahai along the coast. Near the small rocky islet, almost directly in front of it. Look for the small hole in the ground.
