SHORT INFORMATION

Overview of Micronesia

The Federated States of Micronesia boast some of the clearest-blue seas you will ever see, with white, crumbly sand shores. In islands like Chuuk are shallow and vast lagoons of monumental beauty, filled with shipwrecks and kaleidoscopic corals. The islands are a paradise for divers, and many argue that the area is diving and snorkeling ranks among the best in the world.

HOLIDAYS AND TRADITIONS

Culture of the Federal States of Micronesia
