Tourism in Majuro

The Majuro atoll alone has nothing to offer, yet it serves as a decent base for exploring the nearby islands.

Laura Beach, located on the western point of the main island approximately 40 kilometers from town, is the primary tourist destination. Given the high cost of cabs to Laura Beach, the extra value of a rental automobile should not be overlooked.

Eneko Island is a tiny atoll located approximately 45 minutes by boat from Uliga. Day visits and overnight stays in their tiny cottages must be booked via Hotel Robert Reimers. Camping is also an option.

Raycrew, situated on the first floor of the Marshall Islands Resort, can arrange for scuba diving. The crew is kind and knowledgable about nearby diving locations. Equipment may also be leased here.

The little Formosa Supermarket sells food and necessities, although it shuts early. In Uliga, there is a larger Payless supermarket that is typically fully supplied. K&K Island Pride Supermarket, near to the Bank of Guam in Delap, features a huge fresh vegetable area.

Several handcraft shops dot the main street. A visit to any of these places will result in reasonably priced souvenirs. On many days, you may also see ladies manufacturing these handicrafts in these shops.
