Destination Information for Marshall Islands

The Marshall Islands are a picturesque diving hotspot in the Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and Australia. They consist of 29 atolls and 5 islands, 24 of which are occupied, and can be grouped into two chains of islands, known as Ralik and Ratak. The Marshall Islands spent many years under US administration, and were, unfortunately, the location for nuclear testing between 1947 and 1962, meaning some of the atolls are still out of bounds. Although the islands gained independence in 1986, they are still home to US Army Post Kwajalein and the famous WWII battleground of Kwajalein is now used as a missile test range.

Most visitors to the Marshall Islands come for the diving opportunities as there are few other attractions for tourists. A nature dive at Rongelap is a popular choice, and diving amongst the wrecks of WWII is also favoured. Considered to be the main draw for divers is Bikini Island, where visitors can have a guided tour to explore the history of nuclear testing. Bikini is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the direct evidence of the impact of nuclear testing in this area.
