Destination Fact File

One of the most amazing places to go diving in the world.

Micronesia means "small islands" and is the collective name given to the two thousand, tiny, tropical islands scattered over an area of more than three million square miles of the Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and the Philippines. The main islands that form Micronesia include; Guam, Palau, Yap and Truk. Each island group has its own unique cultures, language, history and attractions. The islands and atolls are the culminating result of volcanic activity, which took place millions of years ago. Many of the islands are the summits of huge, underwater mountains, or rims of sunken volcano craters, peaking through the water surface, forming tropical lagoons.

With more ocean than land, some of Micronesia's best sights are underwater. Each island group has its own culture and character as well as diving highlights. Dive conditions also vary enormously but what can be said, is that it is an area that should be on every diver's wish list. Throughout Micronesia divers can encounter an abundance of marine life in just about every imaginable colour and shape, with some species never seen before.

Micronesia Travel Information



Getting to Micronesia from the UK is a long trip but worth the experience. Most of our flight connections are via Manila where we recommend an overnight in a city hotel before the next flight.

All flight connections to and from Micronesia are via Guam, the central hub for all Continental Micronesia flights. Some flight connections have unavoidable long waits in Guam, sometimes up to 12 hours. When this happens we recommend guests get out of the airport to explore the island or just relax and unwind in a town hotel just 10 minutes away from the airport.

While in Guam, guests can take part on a range of leisure activities. In addition to the virgin beaches that cover a large part of the island, Guam is also famous for its undeveloped jungle, caves, waterfalls and WW2 battlefields. Due to the size of the island, trips to most of Guam’s untouched places can be done in one morning or afternoon and are a great way of getting through the day.
