This is the most remote inhabited island of the world, it is the largest island of the insular territory of Chile and is part of the Chilean Polynesia. It stands in the vastness of the Pacific Ocean. Here, in isolation some 2,300 miles (3,700 kilometers) west of Valparaíso, it is one of the main tourist destinations of the country for the great natural beauty but also for the mysterious ancestral culture of the Rapa Nui people.
Hanga Roa is the capital and only town on the island. The moais, giant statues carved from volcanic rock, are the treasure of the island, turned into Rapa Nui National Park and designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1995.
