Hanga Roa

Easter Island’s capital and only urban center, Hanga Roa, lies in a low area on the southern stretch of the western coast. The town of 3,500+ inhabitants is a treasure trove for any tourist, and a pleasure to walk round. The town’s speed limit, as low as 30 kmph, make for a pleasant change in the pace of life. The center of Hanga Roa, though planted with trees and shrubs, still has a windswept feeling.

Two sizeable craft markets and many small shops around town offer a range of local souvenirs.

Cafés and restaurants are varied, though a budget favourite seems to be tuna empanadas. Food on the island is pricey though, average dishes in restaurants cost 7,000 pesos (US$12). For the self-caterer, the two local supermarkets offer a good alternative, though prices still reflect the island's remoteness.

There is a good selection of hotels in the center of town, but if you want to relax and have a quieter stay on the island choose one to the north of Hanga Roa.

To blow that travel weariness away, there is an excellent short walk from downtown heading north along the seafront leading to a few Moai statues.
