View Full Version : Majuro - Port of entry

25th April 2009, 09:49 PM
Majuro is the capital and largest city of the Republic of the Marshall Islands. Built on an atoll of 64 islands, the Majuro Atoll, Majuro has a port, shopping district, hotels, and an international airport. The government offices are based in Delap, and located at the eastern point of Majuro Atoll is the capitol building for the Marshall Islands.

The atoll itself has a land area of only 3.75 sq mi (9.7 kmē), but encloses a lagoon of 113.92 sq mi (295 kmē). Copra (coconut oil) is one of the main exports in the Marshall Islands, and receives copra shipments from most of the smaller populated atolls surrounding the area. Sport fishing is popular, and underwater divers are attracted to the area. Majuro and Kwajalein serve as the transportation hubs for the Marshall Islands, both for air service and shipping, though Majuro is more used because of Kwajalein's restricted military status.

Majuro, like many atolls, consists of extremely narrow land masses which allows a person to walk from the lagoon side to the ocean side within minutes.
