The Marshall Islands, located in the boundless Pacific, have long been popular with the followers of the recreation in the exotic places. The archipelago of the Bikini Atoll is considered an incredibly dangerous recreation site. Atoll has not gained this reputation because of the strong undercurrents or dangerous sea-dwellers. In 1946, the United States chose this magical island as a nuclear test site. For 12 years the hydrogen and atomic bombs on the island have been tested.
During this period the Atoll has experienced more than 65 experiments. Nowadays the high radiation level is the main danger for the islanders and the tourists. It must be noted that Bikini Atoll was still inhabited before the trials. People live here today. After the beginning of the military experiments, the local residents were repeatedly evacuated to the other islands. Some of them, however, have canceled the abandonment of their houses. Today, about ten people live on the island terrarium. Tourists visit the atoll regularly, but it is forbidden to bathe on the polluted beaches.
The incredibly beautiful atoll was one of the first nuclear abatement sites in the world. On his territory the most dangerous attempts were made in the history of mankind. The consequences of the tests have added an irreparable damage to the structure of the underwater world. Under the water near the atoll one can see a lot of the brittle underwater craters - the peculiar lunar landscapes in the deep Pacific. Next - Repulse Bay
