Rental car

Hi there,

I wonder which kind of car is suitable for Kosrae, if there are places only accesible, or more easily accesible with a 4WD than a normal car.

Thanks in advance.

1. Re: Rental car

Half of Kosrae has a good paved 2 lane road, that runs from the airport at the north west corner of the island, around the eastern side of the island, all the way to to Utwe village, which is on the south side. This takes approximately 45 minutes. Past that the road is unpaved & gets progressively bad. To drive to Walung village at the south west corner of the island, leaving from Utwe, you will definitely need a 4WD. The best option to visit Walung village is by boat at high tide. This how 99% of its 200 or so resident travel to and from the village. I hope this helps.
