Day 20 Tahiti to Rapa Nui aka Isla De Pascua or Easter Island

There is only one flight a week from Tahiti to Easter Island and it’s at 02.55. Yes, in the morning. We returned to the airport after an evening that even the locals thought was hot and humid.

Easter Island is 5 hours ahead of Tahiti, so we arrived in the middle of the afternoon. We were greeted at the airport with free insect repellent! This has proved very effective though we suspect it is more for the benefit of the islanders than us.

So, just time at the end of the day to walk down from our hotel to the harbour to see our first moai (as the famous figures are called) as well as a visiting turtle.
