Flung far out in the heart of the Pacific Ocean are the Marshall Islands, a country made up of 29 atolls and over 1,000 islands. Almost half of the entire population of the Marshall Islands live on Majuro, which is the capital. The rest are scattered throughout the seas.
People have been making pit stops throughout the islands for thousands of years, as far back as the 2nd millennium BC. In the 1500’s Europeans came, and the Marshall Islands switched hands for hundreds of years, eventually gaining their independence in 1979.
Today, the islands are repairing from a rough past. From nuclear testing to being torn by wars that weren’t even their own, the beautiful islands continue to move forward in peace.
Idyllic beach scenes await you on the Marshall Islands. Once you’ve had your fill of sun and sand for the day, head to the Alele Museum, which documents the ancient history of the islands. Hop between the atolls and do a little sightseeing, enjoying the warm breeze.
You will probably either fly in from Honolulu, Asia, or Australia. There are also smaller airports throughout the islands, and you can travel between them by boat or by domestic flights.
