Poike is one of three main extinct volcanoes that form Rapa Nui ( Easter Island) (a Chilean island in the Pacific Ocean). At 370 metres, it is the island's second highest point after Terevaka.

Poike forms the eastern headland of Rapa Nui, and there is an abrupt cliff "the Poike ditch" across the island marking the boundary between flows from Terevaka and Poike. Poike last erupted between 230,000 and 705,000 years ago in the Pleistocene, and as the oldest of Easter Island's three volcanoes is the most weathered with relatively stoneless soil.
