Overview of Utwe-Walung Marine Park

Kosrae's other major marine park in Micronesia is named after the villages it borders, Utwe and Walung. The tranquil canoe tour across the backwater mangrove channel linking the two villages is the most unforgettable activity offered in this park named the Pacific region's first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 2005. The park also boasts many smaller mangrove channels leading towards several smaller islets. It offers visitors a look at some of Micronesia's most pristine forests and mangrove ecosystems. Located between Utwe and Walung villages the Park is a community-based conservation area, recognized by the people and state of Kosrae for its outstanding and sustainable biodiversity.

You can select from a variety of tour offerings at the Park – seeing the mangrove channels by traditional canoes, trekking to ancient stone ruins built centuries ago deep in the rainforest, snorkeling in crystal clear, 83 degree F waters over colorful reefs teeming with life, or strolling along the isolated beaches near Walung Village.

In the Park, you can unwind at the Parks newly completed headquarters. Set on the shore a stones throw from the famous Bully Hayes shipwreck site, the buildings architecture mirrors the past with a steep-pitch weaved roof and an open-area interior that is breezy and comfortable. Bathroom facilities available.

Even though fishing is not allowed, recreational and educational activities are permitted, so it is possible to explore this amazing ecosystem by kayak or canoe. Advance notice is recommended. Canoe tours are based on the tidetable. Transportation service available. For more information, ask your hotel call the phone number listed.

Vera H. wrote about Jungle Bay Resort and Spa:

"This is the place to stay at if you want a retreat to reunite with nature. To me, this was paradise. My body felt clean, mentally & physically after staying here for a week. You fall asleep to the soothing jungle noises & the ocean waves. After dark you can see almost every star in the sky. Wake up to beautiful sunrises & eat the freshest & most delicious food in the Caribbean. You can go on hikes through the jungle to see waterfalls and then relax in a hammock by the ocean or on your patio. Talk to the locals and learn about them & you will see why they are proud of their nature island. Jungle Bay gives you the ability to have all this, to feel comfortable in natural surroundings & be eco-friendly with such ease that you don't feel you are deprived of anything. Everything you need is right there. The entire staff is very friendly & are eager to make sure you are enjoying all that Dominica has to offer. Jungle Bay has arrived at the perfect formula for eco-luxury. Dominica is one of world's best kept secrets. Jungle Bay is the perfect place to explore & experience this unspoiled, natural gem of an island. You will feel like you are living a dream & will not want to ever leave.
