Pohnpei

Micronesia's largest and tallest island, the state of Pohnpei offers plenty of choices for active nature lovers. Explore the stunning waterfalls and impressive hill walks on hikes around the rugged, mountainous landscape. Take a boat out to sea and dive in to explore the rich marine diversity along the coral reef and its dropoffs, with chances to glimpse sharks, turtles, manta rays, and sea anemones. Inland, mysterious ruins and extensive mangrove forests make for interesting day trips around Pohnpei. In the evening, try the traditional drink, "sakau," which remains the islander's tipple of choice. Take a peek at our international travel planner: Pohnpei and its charms laid bare and easily scheduled.
