Yap is a land with rich cultural traditions with its grass skirts, giant rock money, and traditional men’s houses. Has fascinating legends and people with unique cultures, Yap is probably the most intriguing Micronesian Island there is.
More or less bordered by a reef, the island of Yap offers scenery for a few of the most colorful and varied fish and coral life in the beautiful Micronesia. The island provides a wide range of diving including channel drifts, steep drop-offs, gentle slopes, protected areas of Colonia harbor, a spot where almost all other dive sites are less than 30 min away. Yap is one of the leading places for close sightings of Manta Rays. Divers can never see such creatures consistently than here. This made Yap in the top lists of diving destinations in the planet. Yap is also ideal for snorkeling because reefs are in shallow waters.
