The Atlandis Top 3 'Things to Do'
The main hiking trail that cross west to east on Colonia. You go between villages and in the jungle on a clear path.
Nan Madol, near the southern side of the island, is the only ancient city ever built atop of a coral reef. Its imposing yet graceful ruins are made of stones and columns so heavy that no one has figured out how it was built.
Truk Lagoon scuba diving is best known for its 60+ World War II wrecks, which easily makes Chuuk Lagoon one of the world's best wreck diving destinations. Due to its strategic location, Truk Island used to be a Japanese Naval Base during WWII. Today the shipwrecks of Truk Lagoon offer a good amount of marine life, with many soft corals and schools of small fish. Some of the wrecks are quite deep, with the bottoms in the 100 to 150 feet (30 to 45 meters) range, which makes Chuuk Lagoon an excellent destination for technical diving.
