MARSHALL ISLANDS TRAVEL GUIDE

lgbt_small.png

The Marshall Islands are some of the most pristine islands in the Pacific -if you're willing to overlook the fact that the US military has conducted 23 nuclear tests on one of them. But the rest of the islands are as beautiful as ever and it is safe to go there. The Marshall Islands take up an enormous amount of space for a country of people numbering less than 60,000 and one which actually has very little land.

 

Full of gorgeous beaches, diving spots, WWII ruins, lagoons and underwater life the Marshall Islands are guaranteed to blow your mind away. Add to that extremely friendly people, and your perfect holiday is made.

MARSHALL ISLANDS WEATHER SYNOPSIS

The Republic of the Marshall Islands has a warm, tropical climate year-round, with average temperatures around 27°C and annual precipitation of approximately 3500 millimetres (mm). Two seasons are recognised: a wet season that occurs between May and November and a drier season between December and April. Climate in this part of the Pacific is governed by a number of factors, including the trade winds and the movement of the South Pacific Convergence Zone (SPCZ), a zone of low-pressure rainfall that migrates across the Pacific south of the equator. Year to year variability in climate is also strongly influenced by the El Niño conditions in the southeast Pacific, which bring drought conditions to the Republic of the Marshall Islands.
