Chuuk

The many islands within this huge atoll are crowned with natural beauty. The outer barrier reef is punctuated with idyllic sand spits dotted with coconut palms. The high islands in the central lagoon rise into the blue island skies.

In Chuuk, the pace of life slows and tropical nature is easily observed and appreciated. Many of the islands offer lush vegetation that harbors rare and migratory birdlife. Enthusiasts have been known to camp high in the hills to observe these special avians. Wild orchids and other flora are found in the scenic and sometimes rugged terrain of the islands.

 


Northern Mariana Islands

A tropical paradise offering the relaxing shores of magnificent beaches and crystal clear blue waters, as well as the lively bustle of night life, shopping, a wide range of ethnic restaurants, and a multitude of outdoor activities.

 


CNMI - Rota

Nicknamed “The World’s Friendliest Island,” Rota is known for its friendly nature, sweet potatoes, and coconut crabs. If not the local delicacies, Rota’s people will soon charm you with their smiles and warm hospitality.

A sense of family will soon overtake you. Dip your toes in the Swimming Hole or book a round of golf. Wedding Cake Mountain and Tweksberry Beach are sights to behold, all accompanied by ceaseless songs of local birds.

 


CNMI - Saipan

This tropical paradise offers beautiful white sand beaches with crystal clear water and pure, fresh air. Warmth is in the air and in the people you will meet.

It is a throwback to a relaxed lifestyle coupled with modern hotels, incredible sights, adventurous activities, and shopping. Garapan is the epicenter of activities with many restaurants, bars, and shopping options.

 


CNMI - Tinian

The crystal water, colorful marine life, and pristine coral reef surrounding the island offer excellent snorkeling, scuba diving, and fishing. Abandoned Shinto shrines, canons in caves, and ruins in the jungle are ready to tell their stories.

 


Guam

Located in the heart of the Western Pacific, Guam is an island territory of the United States, the largest of the Mariana and Micronesian islands, and home to some of the warmest people in the world. Known for its white sand beaches and crystal clear ocean waters, Guam is a perfect destination for families, honeymooners, divers, and anyone looking to relax and get away from crowded city life. And with non-stop flights to Guam from cities in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Philippines, and Hawaii – most between 4 and 5 hours – getting away is quick, easy, and convenient.

 


Kosrae

Kosrae has been described as an unblemished garden of flowers, palms and citrus trees. The air is fresh on Kosrae and adventure beckons those wanting to truly get away from it all.  Steeped in the history of many decades, the island invites exploration.

There are mysterious ancient Lelu ruins similar to those of Nan Madol on Pohnpei.  World war artifacts, cave systems and remnants abound and there's even a pirate ship sunk beneath the waves.

 


Palau

Lost in a great expanse of deep blue ocean, there lies a Pristine Paradise, one of the few remaining paradises on Earth – PALAU. With untouched beauty that can only be found in this remote corner of the mighty Pacific, this oasis harbors a diverse environment and an ancient island culture, still alive in the warm and inviting people.

This is a country that beckons to romantic explorers, divers, and family vacationers, urging them to experience its breathtaking wonders, to encounter its 5,000 years of tradition, and to discover the lush tropical allure of…Pristine Paradise, Palau.

 


Pohnpei

This host to the nation's capital has much to offer the visiting nature lover, explorer and hiker. Pohnpei is the largest and tallest island in the FSM. Its peaks get plenty of rainfall annually and this creates more than 40 rivers that feed the lush upper rain forest. Pohnpei's waterfalls range from pleasant to spectacular.

Surrounded largely by rich mangrove forests, Pohnpei's jagged coastline is intersected by numerous channels that carry nutrients into the vast lagoon. These nutrients attract marine life and make Pohnpei one of the most varied marine environments in Micronesia.

 

Republic of the Marshall Islands

The Marshall Islands is one of the last undiscovered destinations in the world. It offers nature at its best with tropical beauty and untouched natural habitats. The outer islands offer crystal clear waters and pristine, secluded beaches.

Explore WWII relics both on land and sea that you cannot find anywhere else in the world. Shop our local handicraft stores for our finest hand-made handicrafts. If you yearn for exploration, discovery and learning about new cultures, you will find a visit to the Marshall Islands very rewarding.

 


Yap

Yap is the most intriguing island in Micronesia. It is a land steeped in ancient traditions, fascinating legends, and peopled by one of the most distinctive cultures in the Pacific.

Attractions like a handmade seaside men's house, cultural village tours, huge, ancient stone money discs and stone money banks, dancing, handicraft making, marine life and mangrove forests highlight a visit to this unique outpost.
