The island of Yap, which actually consists of four continental islands that are very close together and joined within a common coral reef, is the most intriguing island in Micronesia. Scattered throughout the island are huge, ancient, stone money discs that are very heavy and are never moved around. They are still used for ceremonial exchanges, such as transfers of land titles. All islanders know who owns each disc, and there is also a stone money bank. It is interesting that on Yap traditional clothing is still worn. Indeed even in the capital of Colonia it is not uncommon for women to work in stores bare-breasted.

However, it is the beautiful sea creatures that attract snorkellers and divers. Of special interest, the protected area for manta rays results in them daily entering the lagoons or ‘cleaning stations,’ and this allows for a delightfully close encounter with these gentle giants. For the active person there's plenty to do on land and in the ocean. The visitor can expect to go mountain-biking, hike on an ancient stone path, or try some deep sea fishing as part of the Yap experience. Some just relax under a coconut tree on one of the unspoiled beaches.

Visit the villages to appreciate the traditional life where fishing, sailing and weaving are still important parts of everyday life. Grass skirts for the women, and thu'us, a type of loincloth for the men, are the basic garb in the small towns. Interestingly, their society consists of a highly complex caste system involving at least seven tiers of rank. Attractions like a handmade seaside men's house, dancing, handicraft making, marine life and mangrove forests are highlights of a visit to this unique outpost.
