The climate of Easter Island (Chile)
Easter Island, or Rapa Nui, is well known and has belonged to Chile
since 1888. Of course the island is mainly known for its group of
icons, also called Moai. These icons were made by the local population
about 1000 AD. The island has entirely been placed on the World
heritage list of Unesco. The climate of Easter Island is a humid
subtropical climate. It has all the characteristics of a tropical
climate but, due to its maritime situation, has a stronger influence
from the sea. The temperature is nearly constant throughout the year.
However due to the sea-breeze the precipitation is different from
other tropical areas. Most rain here falls in the winter months and
April. The winters are mild. Cyclones and tropical storms mostly rage
past Easter Island.
