Bikini Atoll, The Marshall Islands

Lost somewhere in the ocean, this island looks like a paradise, doesn’t it? But Bikini Atoll was actually home to numerous nuclear testing programs that turned the picturesque island of Bikini into a radioactive wasteland. The inhabitants were forced to abandon their homes, and even today this remains hazardous for living organisms: the abnormally high level of radiation recorded here can cause cancer.

Between 1946 and 1958, 23 nuclear devices were detonated by the United States at seven test sites located on the reef, inside the atoll, in the air, or underwater.

In 1996, the Bikini Council authorized diving operations as a means to generate income for Bikini islanders currently and upon their eventual return. The tours, limited to fewer than a dozen experienced divers a week, cost more than US$5000 and include detailed histories of the nuclear tests.

USAG Kwajalein Atoll - A Place Like No Other || Aerial Highlights

USAG-KA is located in the Marshall Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. While being key for US national security, its remoteness and location allow for many unique times in your not-so-typical 9-5pm job. Please enjoy some of the memories that I have collected over the past couple years while living on this amazing two-mile-long piece of coral.

All drone shots of Kwaj were taken before the Army drone ban (pre-summer 2017).

The Marshall Islands are a sprawling chain of volcanic islands and coral atolls in the central Pacific Ocean, between Hawaii and the Philippines.

In the northwest, Bikini Atoll’s largely undisturbed waters, used as a ship graveyard after World War II, are now a popular wreck dive site. Near Majuro Atoll, which holds the islands' capital and largest settlement, the coral reef at Kalalin Pass teems with marine life.

Bikini Atoll in Majuro, Marshall Islands

Bikini Atoll, sometimes known as Eschscholtz Atoll between the 1800s and 1946, is a coral reef in the Marshall Islands consisting of 23 islands surrounding a 594.1 km2 central lagoon. The atoll's inhabitants were relocated in 1946, after which the islands and lagoon were the site of 23 nuclear tests by the United States until 1958.

The atoll is at the northern end of the Ralik Chain, approximately 850 kilometres northwest of the capital Majuro. Three families were resettled on Bikini island in 1970, totaling about 100 residents. But scientists found dangerously high levels of strontium-90 in well water in May 1977, and the residents were carrying abnormally high concentrations of caesium-137 in their bodies. They were removed in 1980. The atoll is occasionally visited today by divers and a few scientists, and is occupied by a handful of caretakers.

United Island Hopper - Majuro to Kwajalein

Enjoy the experience of United's Island Hopper service with take-offs and landings from each of the segments on the journey to Chuuk, Federated States of Micronesia.

This is the second segment of my itinerary (MAJ-KWA) after spending several days in the Marshall Islands. Continuing westward on United Airlines Flight 154 (UA154) on November 17, 2018. You can't get off in Kwajalein Atoll, which is an active US Army base unless you have permission. Likewise, photography is not permitted after landing while you are on the ground.

Over the remainder of the day I would fly onwards on the same aircraft between Kwajalein-Kosrae (KWA-KSA), Kosrae-Pohnpei (KSA-PNI) and Pohnpei-Chuuk (PNI-TKK). I would continue on to Guam from Chuuk after a 12 hour layover in the middle of the night from there, taking advantage of a quirk in United's schedule.

Diplomatic Dancing in the Marshall Islands

In April 2016, the U.S. Army Garrison Kwajalein Atoll commander, Col. Michael Larsen, Command Sergeant Major Angela Rawlings, and U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of the Marshall Islands Tom Armbruster, visited the remote island of Enniburr (nicknamed Third Island). The local Marshallese population greeted them with traditional songs and spontaneous dancing on the pier.
