Overview of Sapuk Lighthouse

This Japanese lighthouse guided ships into one of the largest of the naval bases established in Micronesia, and was heavily bombed during the war, and the lighthouse is riddled with shrapnel holes from a British strafing raid in early 1945. Located on the Sapuk Peninsula at the eastern end of Weno, the principal island of Chuuk atoll in central Micronesia. Accessible by a short walk from the elementary school at the end of the road toward the east end of the island. Site and tower open.

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
