Majuro, Marshall Islands

Marshall Islands boasts of having Majuro as the capital city which is also the largest city as well. Most of the more developed areas of the city are situated on the eastern parts of Marshall Island on the northern side of the airport. The city is divided into several smaller towns including Dorrit, Uliga and Delap which are linked to one another by land stretches. Majuro city can be accessed easily by using a boat at the Uliga dock. Visitors can as well fly in through Amata Kabua International Airport where Continental Airlines offers several flight connections from Honolulu. Flights can sometimes stop at the various atolls located along the way which gives the destination scenic surroundings. If you reserve a hotel, you will get free transfers to/ from the airport but you can still opt for a taxi which is also cheap.

The locals are very kind and friendly and you can always expect free rides from the police and locals when going in the same direction. The entire island is relatively small and easily explored by foot especially when you are not in a hurry. However, you can’t go walking around Laura Beach and taxis to this beach are quite expensive but you can also wait for the bus services which are cheaper.
The most common activity in Majuro is hiking which is also very safe. When you are walking around inhabited parts, be careful about packs of dogs that sometimes attack tourists.
