Easter Island

The Easter Island is located in the South Pacific and belongs to Chile. It has three volcanoes, Poike, Rano Kau and Terevaka.
It is most famous for its Moai, the stone statues now located along the coastlines. It gets its name of "Easter" because the first recorded European visit by a Dutch Admiral was Jacob Roggeveen on Easter Sunday, 1722. The population is 3,791.
