Midway Island, USA

Midway Island is an atoll located in the North Pacific Ocean (near the northwestern end of the Hawaiian archipelago), about one-third of the way between Honolulu and Tokyo. It consists of a ring-shaped barrier reef and several sand islets. The two significant pieces of land, Sand Island and Eastern Island, provide habitat for hundreds of thousands of seabirds.

The primary activities at Midway island are nature viewing and wildlife photography, snorkeling, limited scuba diving and kayaking. Other attractions include historic memorials to the battle of Midway, the nesting areas of over 2 million albatross, as well as many other seabirds.
