Flights to Micronesia
Officially known as the Federated States of Micronesia or FSM, this island nation and associated state of the United States of America is composed of four states – Chuuk, Kosrae, Pohnpei and Yap, all located and spread across the Western Pacific Ocean. All these four states consists of over 600 islands with just a combined land area of 271 square miles. Each of these states have their own flag, geography, ecology, language and culture so a visit to each state would definitely provide a unique experience.
Chuuk, the most populated state among the four states, is well known for its excellent wreck diving opportunities. Its Truk Lagoon is listed as one of the four “meccas” of wreck diving by PADI or the Professional Association of Diving Instructors.
In Pohnpei, the largest island and most developed among the four states of Micronesia, there are more activities to do beyond scuba diving. Visitors to the island can enjoy water sports activities such as surfing and snorkeling or explore the various Japanese relics found in the island including two old shore batteries.
Kosrae, a largely unspoiled high island, is popular among scuba divers and hikers. It is home to some of world’s excellent coral reefs that have retained their pristine condition. The island is also distinctive for its dense vegetation and steep mountains that any hiker would enjoy trekking through.
Lastly, the state of Yap was once described as the most interesting island in Micronesia. It is composed of 134 islands and atolls and popular among travelers for its scuba diving and for its “stone money”, that are relatively large and not the easy to move.
Micronesia is considered to be one of the most beautiful places on earth as well as one of the most remote. It is home to a diverse culture and biological landscape that is unmatched anywhere in the world. Scuba diving enthusiasts will also be pleased to find out that Micronesia has one of the greatest coral reefs on earth and the best pelagic fisheries left in the world.
