Micronesia Map

The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) consists of 607 islands in the western Pacific, about 2,500 miles southwest of Hawaii, above the equator. In general, FSM includes the Caroline Islands, known as the West and the East. Although the country's total land area is only 270.8 square miles, it occupies one million square miles of the Pacific Ocean, and the distance from the west (Yap) to the east (Kosrae) is 1,700 miles. Each of the four states is surrounded by one or more "high islands", all except Kosley, including many atolls.

Micronesia Island Map

Yapzhou consists of 4 large islands, 7 small islands and 134 atolls with a total area of 45.6 square miles. The state of Chuuk has a land area of 49.2 square miles and comprises seven large archipelagos. Pompeii has a land mass of 133.4 square miles, of which Pompeii covers 130 square miles and is the largest island in the FSM. Cosley is essentially a 42.3 square mile high island. The FSM islands are the result of millions of years of volcanic activity that led to a plethora of islands and atolls. Some are the tops of mountain peaks that tower over the surface and are now surrounded by coral reefs. Others are atolls, islands that sink beneath the surface, leaving a circle of coral reefs and islets surrounding coral and sand lagoons. There is also a mix of atolls and high islands in the lagoon.

Travel Information Map

The Chuuk Lagoon has a long history of warm, clear seas. This is the capital for shipwrecks during World War II, and you can explore the "boat reef". Only for adventurous divers, although you can see some sunken ships above the water. Pompeii's most famous and most-photographed waterfall is a nice picnic spot after visiting the nearby ruins of South Mador. The large lake at the bottom of the 20 meter high waterfall invites you to swim. Really amazing and not to be missed.
