Easter Island

Ready to look a mystery the eye? Or, in the lack-of-eyes, to be exact? On the remote island of Easter Island far off of the coast of Chile, hundreds and hundreds of stone heads and torsos stand stranded along long scenic paths. How their creators even managed to transport them remains a mystery (each weighs around 14 tons), and no one even know why they were placed there. If you enjoy soaking up the tropical sun on a gorgeous beach and staring into vacant eyes in one of the world’s most mysterious places, don’t worry, you can do it all there.
