Marshall Islands UNESCO has registered 1 site on the World Heritage list and 3 on the tentative list.

Some places are so interesting that it’s relevant to keep them for future generations. This is why UNESCO has built a list of crucial classified properties in which superb places stand out for their aesthetic, natural, artistic, or cultural significance.

More than a thousand places are registered as Unesco’s World Heritage worldwide. Due to my interest in visiting World Heritage sites, I compiled the UNESCO list of the Marshall Islands and the corresponding map.

  1. The Bikini Atoll Nuclear Test Site is a cultural UNESCO heritage site in the Marshall Islands. It recognizes the ongoing legacy and impact of nuclear testing and its effects on the region’s environment, society, and culture. The site includes remnants of the testing grounds and structures, cultural artifacts, and testimonies of those affected by the tests. It serves as a reminder of the destructive power of nuclear weapons and the importance of international efforts toward disarmament and nonproliferation.
