Overview of Lelu Ruins Historic Park

The Lelu ruins are a historic site of great importance. Visually, they qualify as a 'Wonder of the Pacific.' along with Nan Madol (Pohnpei) and Easter Island's statues. Historically, it was the capital or ruling center of Kosrae—a feudal society which was at the pinnacle of complex political development in prehistoric Micronesia (similar to Hawaiian and Tongan societies in Polynesia). Kosrae's society had a great influence not only on Kosrae, but on Pohnpei and probably Chuuk (Truk).

Walking around Lelu Island you'll see only a sleepy waterfront village. An uninformed visitor might never know that behind a 'modern' wall of houses, stores, and breadfruit trees lies one of the most impressive archaeological sites in all the Pacific Islands.

Immense walls of coral and basalt stand over the remains of a royal city's canals, temples and royal tombs. Once inside these impressive walls, you're in an ancient, hidden city, the kind of isolated setting you might imagine trekking hours through dense jungle to find. These walls transport you 500 years back in time where you just might feet the presence of the Togusra protecting his kingdom.

Kay J. wrote about Sto. Nino Beach Resort:

"The beach at this resort is stunning! The rooms are small but who needs a big one when the outdoor is so enticing? Don't think about using your phone and laptop because this resort will not give you a good phone reception and internet. Sto. Nino Resort will make you forget the time and will ease your mind from stress. What I like most about this resort is Rebecca, the owner who will make sure you are well taken care of. Another best thing is their Little Boracay, an isolated beach where you can have your own privacy.
