The Marshall Islands want to be a travel destination

Date:

As my boat slowly approached the 7-acre islet of Bokanbotin – a 15-minute ride from Majuro, the capital of the Marshall Islands – it looked like I was sailing into a desktop wallpaper. 

A small white sandy beach wraps around an Edenic jungle. Under the sun, the turquoise water around the tiny island was as clear as glass – you could easily see the baby reef sharks swim below the surface. No one else was on the private island, making it a secluded oasis. 

The Pacific has no shortage of unspoiled islands like Bokanbotin to enjoy. Think Fiji or Tahiti, which are renowned as top tourist destinations for being akin to paradise. That’s not the case for fellow island nation the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI). As one of the least visited countries in the world, the RMI only gets about 6,000 visitors annually. In comparison, during the month of June, Fiji received over 90,000 travelers.
