Silversea Luxury Cruises À SORAL YEP

Almost halfway between Yap and Woleai, Sorol is an isolated and nowadays uninhabited atoll. With a little bit of fantasy, the shape of Sorol Atoll looks somewhat like an extended seahorse. Six small islets are found on the northern rim of the reef, of which Sorol proper is the largest (with 0.5 square kilometers) at the southeastern end. Sorol once was inhabited, but abandoned after a cyclone had severely damaged the islets. View more

Monitor lizards had been introduced on Sorol during the Japanese administration before WWII and apparently feed on the sea turtle eggs laid on its beaches. A 12-mile zone around the atoll was declared a marine protected area in 2014, prohibiting fishing of any kind. Due to the absence of human residents, seabirds are thriving, reef fish are plentiful and coconut crabs can be seen active during the day.
