The Stunning Main Port of Easter Island

Easter Island is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeastern most point of the Polynesian triangle. It is a World Heritage Site (as determined by UNESCO) with much of the island protected within the Rapa Nui National Park.

The island's first recorded European visitor, Jacob Roggeveen, named it "Easter Island". It's one of the world's most isolated inhabited islands.

These occur mostly in the winter months (June–August).
