Destination Information for Micronesia

Comprising more than 600 islands scattered across the Western Pacific Ocean, the Federated States of Micronesia incorporates four distinctly separate island states: Pohnpei, Kosrae, Chuuk and Yap. Although the islands are grouped together under one name, they are diverse in their culture and identity, with over 14 different languages being spoken, despite English being the official language and the US dollar the only accepted currency.

Diving experts will no-doubt know of Chuuk, renowned for its wreck diving. It’s sometimes referred to as an underwater museum, so plentiful are the examples of wreck WWII vessels, and the diving and snorkelling opportunities are ranked among the best in the world. Yap is the most unaffected by Western culture of all the islands, with locals still trading using a stone currency, dressing in traditional garments and embracing music and dance in their lifestyle.

The remoteness of these islands so rich in stunning natural beauty makes them difficult to get to, but there is an ‘island hopper’ flight which runs several times per week stopping on each of the islands. For those travellers who make the distance, the delights of awe-inspiring views, unspoilt isolated beaches and ancient ruins await.
