Kwajalein Atoll

 
Kwajalein Atoll Kwajalein Atoll consists of 97 islands with a total land mass of just 6.5 sq miles (17 sq km) that surround an immense 1100 sq mile (2850 sq km) lagoon. This makes it the biggest coral atoll in the world. It's not much of a tourist draw; the biggest island is owned by the US Army the smaller islands are not particularly intersting either. The closest thing to a tourist attraction is the possibility to dive for WW II ship wrecks. The atoll is used by the US Army for testing intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) fired from Vandenburg Air Force Base in California, 4200 miles (6700km) away. The tests generally occur at night, often lighting up the sky with a brilliant display of explosions, burning debris and soni...
 

Majuro

 
Majuro Majuro is a fairly large atoll. Three of Majuro's islands - Delap, Uliga and Darrit (Rita) - combine to form the the nation's capital, also known as D-U-D. It's the most modern place on all the islands but there are still a few sights worth seeing. There is a museum, a copra processing plant and the shockingly modernistic capitol building to visit. On the west side of the island Laura is the place to head for - the best beached, the most authentic villages and the best diving are found here. From Laura to Delap on the west side is some 30 miles. ...
 

Bikini Atoll

 
Bikini Atoll Bikini Atoll, part of the Marshall Islands, in mid Pacific, is famous for the nuclear tests carried out in 1946, through to 1954. The islands are safe to visit, and background radiation is now less than most large cities. Visitors are advised not to eat produce grown on the atoll, due to the risk of ingesting ceasium, which may have a cumulative effect over a period of time. Fish are unaffected, and are in abundance due to lack of an idigenous population. Visiting the islands is strictly controlled. The majority of visitors travel to dive the wrecks from the 1946 tests, resting on the lagoon floor. Fishermen also enjoy the varied species and challenging fly fishing, in addition to angling for larger species including ...
 

Enewetok Atoll

 
Enewetok Atoll Enewetok Atoll are the small islands where the u.s. tested 43 atomic bombs in the 1950's..including 'mike'..the worlds first thermonuclear device. I was there during the late 1970's for the governments attempt at cleaning up the resulting radiation. Radioactive soil and materials were dumped into the lagoon and into a large bomb crater, then the crater was sealed with a huge concrete cap. The burial site is expected to be 'hot' for 25,000 years. This Atoll, although one of the most beautiful places anywhere, is not where I would go for a vacation....
