Exploring Marshall Islands

The Majuro Atoll, comprising 53 islets, is the most beautiful and important (politically, economically and transport-wise) constituent of the Marshall Islands. It has been named the “Pearl of the Pacific” and offers several pristine white beaches (in Laura, the far west of the atoll) and several stunning landscapes and prolific deep-sea fishing activities (in Arno Atoll).

Kwajalein is one of the world’s largest atolls (as measured by lagoon size – 1722 sq km). Comprising 97 islands and islets, the southernmost and largest island in the atoll is named Kwajalein Island, which its majority English-speaking residents often refer to as ‘Kwaj’. The atoll is also used as a base for orbital rocket launches and on it is located one of the five ground stations used in controlling the operation of the Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation system. Furthermore, the atoll serves as a seaport, air stop and US navy base.

On the outer islands, you can find some great spots for fishing or diving. The locals of the outer islands use traditional korkor canoes and offer trips to uninhabited islands around. Those interested in the military history of the island during World War II will also find a lot to learn and explore on the outer islands.
