Overview of Forbidden Island (Rumung)

The island of Rumung has been forbidden to all foreigners since the 17th century. The absolute preservation of culture and tradition was paramount to the community of Rumung.

The barriers of entry were recently lifted to allow a few outsiders to visit select areas of this truly historic spot. A symbolic artifact of the Yapese culture resides on the island - the two largest pieces of stone money within the island chain - both span approximately 12 feet and each weigh more than a few tons.

"Once we finally found the entrance (couldn't find it on our first trip), it was awesome! Very cool sand, nice view of the water, neat cliffs, and very secluded. A must see!
