Overview of Awak Pah Marine Park

Awak Pah Marine Park is the most well-known of the parks in the area and has a nice big sign right out on the main road. From the parking area near the owner's house, a 0.2 km (0.12 mi) coral and concrete walkway leads to the water through a dense section of mangrove forests. At the end, there's a tiny picnic area by the water, a large nahs, and a few other huts that can be rented at an extra cost. The water is shallow and a bit silty on the south side and deep on the west and northwest side where a huge pair of PVC rings have been anchored (a good place to swim). The rock wall by the water is a fun place to jump from, but it can be difficult to climb back out. Snorkeling can be pretty good to the west along the reef wall with lots of small fish and some interesting coral growth. Unfortunately, local visitors have been careless with their garbage and the beautiful reef scenery is frequently ruined by the presence of discarded aluminum soda cans or flashlight batteries ' a sad trend on Pohnpei. Water clarity varies from crystal clear to murky depending on the tides; it's best to visit on an incoming tide. You can visit Awak Marine Park without making arrangements beforehand.

"Not a lot of pizza options on the island, but this place is amazing! We had the delicious "Boricua", and it was so big we had to take it home as leftovers. Nice clean atmosphere and friendly staff.
