With snorkelling opportunities and loads of war history for the avid history buff, Majuro has plenty to offer tourists. Why wait?
The capital city of the Republic of the Marshall Islands is Majuro, situated on the Majuro Atoll.
An atoll is a section of coral or volcanic land rising out of the ocean surrounding a lagoon. 64 volcanic islands and coral atolls make up the Marshall Islands, which are located between the Philippines and Hawaii.
Approximately one-third of the atolls are uninhabited.
In February 2018, a bill passed recognising a cryptocurrency called Sovereign as legal tender.
Despite this, the Marshall Islands still currently use the US Dollar as their legal tender.
Due to its proximity to the equator, the Marshall Islands are hot and humid year-round, with little seasonal change. Temperatures generally range from 21 degrees Celsius to 34 degrees Celsius depending on the season.
December to March tends to have breezes blowing through which help to cool the islands.
The climate is tropical and water temperature is warm, providing perfect temperatures for sea life to thrive. The world below the water is as colourful as the world above it in the Marshall Islands!
There are over 60,000+ people living in the Marshall Islands and Marshallese is the national language of the Marshall Islands.
