TOFOL, Kosrae, Federated States of Micronesia, Aug. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A new travel video gives visitors an inside look at the beautiful and peaceful Pacific island of Kosrae. Located halfway between Hawaii and Guam, Kosrae is home to protected and pristine coral reefs and dive sites, ancient ruins, lush rainforests and a vibrant local culture.
"Kosrae is an amazing place for a vacation or a lifetime, says Grant Ismael, director of the Kosrae Visitors Bureau. "This video is one way we can share our island's friendly people, ancient culture and natural beauty, from unspoiled beaches and magnificent coral reefs to the vivid green and towering hills of our tropical landscape."
Made possible by the Kosrae Chamber of Commerce and produced by noted underwater video production company LiquidAssets.TV, the five-minute video takes a look at a variety of things to do on Kosrae, such as scuba diving, surfing, paddle boarding the mangrove channels, treks to island waterfalls and ancient forests, guided tours to the ancient Menke and Lelu ruins and WWII historic sites as well as working with the island's craftspeople and deep sea fishing. Also shown are places to stay on Kosrae, including the Kosrae Nautilus Resort, Kosrae Village Eco Lodge and Resort and the Pacific Treelodge.
The video also provides an overview of Kosrae's commitment to the environment and sustainability, from plans to power the island with ocean waves to Kosrae's thriving organic agricultural industry, including the island's green tangerines, farm-raised giant clams and coral.
Kosrae is an eco-traveler's paradise and an internationally acclaimed dive destination. A 42-square-mile island, it is one of the four states of the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) and is located between Guam and Hawaii. Kosrae's reefs are considered to be among the most pristine remaining in the world. Kosrae is served by the United/Continental Island Hopper via Hawaii and Guam.
