Ana Kai Tangata Cave

Ana Kai Tangata

Ana Kai Tangata is an easily accessible cave on the edge of Hanga Roa. Actually, it is a cavity formed by the sea, very high and not very far inward. The cave is located at sea level and is accessible via a short path over a meadow and then a staircase going down.

On the cave walls you can see birdmen in the form of cave paintings. These are also the highlight of the cave. However, the paintings are increasingly weathering. Compared to other photos that I saw on the internet, they were already worse to see. However, Ana Kai Tangata is worth a visit anyway due to the large opening to the sea. It is best to visit the cave as part of my proposed hike to Orongo.
