|Mili can be a good choice for
travelers who want to visit one of the outer atolls, as it has friendly
people and beautiful beaches and it's not too expensive to reach. After
Kwajalein, Mili has the most land area of the Marshallese atolls, with a
population of just over 850.
In 1937, famed US aviator
Amelia Earhart disappeared in this part of the Pacific in the midst of a
flight around the world. Although the mystery surrounding her
disappearance remains, she was reportedly seen on Mili under Japanese
custody long after her flight went missing.
As a major WWII Japanese base, Mili has many
abandoned weapons, war planes and bombed-out buildings still scattered
around. The atoll's oceanside beaches are great for shell collecting,
while the lagoon's white-sand shores are perfect for lazy days of sunning
and swimming. The surrounding waters have pristine diving.
