Hospitality/Tourism

Marshall Islands is located in the northern Pacific region of Micronesia – one of the fastest growing regions for tourism in the world – and is located between North America and Asia, two of the most productive tourism source markets.

Its one of the most isolated nations in the world, perfectly located in a tropical warm area with a large swell window and consistent trade winds.

It prides itself in being the “Pearl of the Pacific” because of its rare beauty and pearl-like atolls that make up the islands. As a coral atoll nation, one of only four in the world, the Marshall Islands offers a very unique environment and landscape, consisting of saltwater lagoons encircled by white beaches and small, lush islands – over 1,200 individual islands, 870 reef systems, 800 species of fish, and 160 species of coral.
