Micronesia Travel Photos

The islands and atolls of Micronesia lie between Hawaii and the Philippines, north of the equator. The Micronesia map shows the seven political entities which comprise this sprawling region: the Federated States of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, the Northern Marianas, Guam, and Palau. The Federated States of Micronesia is itself divided into Kosrae, Pohnpei, Chuuk, and Yap states.

Our gallery of Micronesia travel photos introduces a few remote atolls and some Micronesia holiday destinations more easily accessible on Continental Air Micronesia flights. Wherever island group you choose for your Micronesia vacation, the traces of the varied history of Micronesia through Spanish, Japanese, and American colonial periods will be evident.

All photos on are by David Stanley, author of Moon Handbooks South Pacific. The images on this page are details. To view the complete photos, click on the thumbnails.
