Marshall Islands Travel Guide
The Marshall Islands are composed of more than 1, 200 coral atolls and volcanic islands and islets in the central Pacific Ocean about half-way between Hawaii and Australia. The Marshall Islands are made up of low-lying atolls – which are coral reefs that circle a lagoon.
They are made up of two parallel chains of islands – the Ratak (Sunrise), to the east and the Ralik (Sunset) to the west. The chains lie about 125 miles (200 km) apart and extend some 800 miles north-west to south-east.
They receive limited numbers of tourists due to the limited choices of activities and the expense to get there. When you get there it is probably best to settle for a beech holiday snorkeling and swimming.
