Pohnpei, Micronesia

Photograph by Ami Vitale, Panos

A spear fisherman holds a fish in the shallow waters above a reef in Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia. The island, halfway between Manila and Honolulu, has adventure opportunities galore: Kiteboard the cross-shore winds at Sokhes Pass, dive the reefs of the outer atolls, or hike to one of Pohnpei’s shampoo-ad-worthy waterfalls that tumble out of the high country—where rainfall averages 400 inches annually—into cool, swimmable pools.
