Overview of Wiya Bird Cave

The bird cave located in Tafunsak about three miles from the airport and just before the quarry is home to thousands of Island Swiftlet birds. The mouth of the cave has a large opening that goes back about 60 feet; the floor is soft, but is covered with bird droppings and is considered unsafe to walk on. It is believed that the cave once cut through the island. Local lore says that giants used to live there and were thought to have taught Kosraeans how to count from one to ten and taught Kosraeans to fish. A sign adjacent to the cave will inform you of the legend. Parking is adjacent to the site off the main road. Entrance fee is $2.

Lauretta J. wrote about Glasse Hiking Trail:

"This is a fairly easy hike accessible through the small community of Boetica on the south east of the island. It is easy walking for about 45 minutes with a lot of opportunities to stop and indulge in the breath taking view of the sea. Be prepared to get your feet wet! you do have to cross 1 or 2 streams on the way (A great way to refill your water bottles by the way!) 3 pools formed in volcanic rock gives you the perfect chance to 'soak up' some sea salt water which is awesome for curing cuts and bruises!! enjoy
