Micronesia

Micronesia

A veritable Eden in the western Pacific, Micronesia invites discovery both above land—on sugary sand beaches and in verdant forests—and below its gentle, azure waters. Each pristine island, from Guam to the Northern Mariana Islands, from the Marshall Islands to Palau, exudes a bewitching blend of active adventure, hospitable people, and a rich culture and history. Dive deep into the Blue Grotto off Saipan. Trek through ancient villages and ruins on Palau. Cruise by river boat to glimpse crocodiles. Taste mangrove crab and fruit bat soup. Kayak through peaceful lagoons in Majuro. And explore World War II relics in the Marshall Islands. Here, fortuitously set in the vast expanse of the ocean, Micronesia is an untouched paradise that captures the heart of romantics, adventurers, divers, and families.
