Silversea Expedition Cruises A POHNPEI

Pohnpei (also known as Ponape) is the largest island in the Eastern Caroline Archipelago and the national capital of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). The State of Pohnpei is one of four that comprise the FSM, along with the islands of Chuuk, Kosrae and Yap. Unlike other Micronesian islands, volcanic Pohnpei boasts tropical jungles, mist-covered mountains, mangrove swamps and exotic flora. Abundant rainfall feeds streams, rivers and tumbling waterfalls.

Pohnpei’s most prominent landmarks include Sokeh’s Rock, a steep, 800-foot (244-metre) volcanic outcrop overlooking the harbour; the town of Kolonia; and Nan Madol, the mysterious, ancient stone city that is Micronesia’s best known archaeological site and often called the “Venice of the Pacific”. Built on 100 man-made islets by the legendary Saudeleur kings, the ruins can be visited by boat from Kolonia, but require a permit and a guide. The main town of Kolonia boasts such historical sites as the remnants of the Spanish Wall, built in 1889 as a boundary for Fort Alphonso XII; the Catholic Mission Bell Tower, part of the old German church torn down by the Japanese during World War II; the Lidorkini Museum, an occasional Japanese tank, and the Japanese Shrine. When exploring around the island, bird watchers may be able to spot the endemic Pohnpei fantail and Pohnpei flycatcher. Pier Information The ship is scheduled to dock at Dekehtik Port, Pier #4 in Kolonia. The town is within walking distance. Non-metered taxis are available upon call. We recommend establishing the fare before leaving the pier area. Shopping Handicrafts and souvenir items can be found in shops around Kolonia and Kapinga Village. Most shops are open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The local currency is the U.S. dollar. Cuisine Polynesian and Micronesian dishes as well as the typical American fast food can be found in a variety of eateries and hotel restaurants around Kolonia. Other Sites Explore the island’s capital and see its major points of interest including the Cultural Center. The main attraction is the archaeological site of Nan Madol, reached via a boat trip. For independent sightseeing, it is best to use taxis.
