Easter Island, Chile

Located 3,700 km (2,300 miles) off the west coast of Chile, Easter Island (Rapa Nui) is the world's most isolated inhabited island. It is also one of the most mystifying places on Earth, possessing a history that remains as unclear as it is evocative. According to Wikipedia, Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapa Nui people. In 1995, UNESCO named Easter Island a World Heritage Site, with much of the island protected within Rapa Nui National Park.
