The Republic of the Marshall Islands covers nearly a million square miles of coral atolls, islands and deep blue ocean and is one of the most unique places in the world to visit.
As the capital atoll of the Republic of the Marshall Islands, Majuro houses the central government, most of the country’s businesses, and an estimated 50% of the country’s population. Indeed, this is the country’s most developed and urban atoll.
Nonetheless, Majuro still offers visitors a glimpse of what the rest of the country is like. While you are here, we encourage you to take a little time to really see the Marshall Islands. Do a bit of exploring—take a drive out to Laura Village (on the far western end of the island), book a picnic trip to one of our small islands across the lagoon, or take a scuba diving excursion to see our rich underwater world. If you have a few extra days, visit one of our other atolls, like Arno, Jaluit, Mili or Likiep, where small accommodation facilities are available.
Climate: The tropical weather averages about 81 F (27 C) with little variation during the year. The waters in the lagoon are a comfortable 80F (26 C) year round. The region is known for mild winds and tropical showers. The normal conditions are dry with low rainfall. Trade winds cool the atolls much of the year and the calm water months fall between June and September. The seasons are typical of the tropics. The rainy season runs from September through November. The dry season begins in January and lasts for 3 months.
Accommodation: Throughout the Marshall Islands there are many choices for hotel or bed and breakfast accommodations. On Majuro you will discover a range of hotels with a variety of services and rooms. There are also many exciting opportunities to experience the outer islands and distant atolls and to meet the people of the Marshall Islands.
