Majuro is the capital of Marshall Islands and one of the greatest treasures of the Marshall Islands. Once called “the pearl of the Pacific” by Robert Louis Stevenson. The 53 isles that make up the capital district are the economic, political and commercial heart of the country, and they remain just as charming as when Stevenson landed on their shores.
Best Time to Visit
May to October is the best times to go if you want to enjoy the sea. Waters are calm at this time though the water temperature makes swimming an all year round activity.
Tourist Attractions in Majuro
The city of Majuro itself offers few traditional tourist attractions, but the capital is a good base from which to explore many of the surrounding islands. The most popular sight for travelers is Laura Beach, which is about 40 kilometers away from the town on the main island’s western tip.
The Arno Atoll is about 20 kilometers from the Majuro Atoll. The Arno Atoll is composed of 133 islands and is the country’s only atoll that is served by public boats. Longar Point is a particularly popular place within the atoll, known for its incredible deep-sea fishing opportunities. The waters off the coast are home to an abundance of marine life, including marlin, yellowfin tuna, sailfish and mahi-mahi.
Food in Majuro
Traditional foods like fish and seafood form the staple diet and breadfruit, coconut, arrowroot, yams, taro and pumpkins provide the vegetable supplement.
