"Kwaj... sooooooooo much to say." Kwajalein by TxDevil

Kwajalein Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 19 photos

I lived on this beautiful 3 mile long, 1/2 mile wide Island back when I was a mere 18 years old. What an experience. I can honestly say that was the best 6 months of my life. Graduate high school, then one month after....you are on a plane to a tropical island where it's 80 degrees year round.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:work there TAX free, no cars, no buses... just bicycles.
  • Cons:You miss your convenient lifestyles... and your friends and family.
  • In a nutshell:Nice for a 6 month stay, but y ou get homesick for the mainland
  • Last visit to Kwajalein: Dec 1994

    I also lived on Kwaj...for 2 years! I was 6-7 years old, but I remeber it vividly. I was the best experience of my life!

    Lived there from 1964-1968. I was 9-13 years old. Great experience-no TV, all sports. Anyone there then? I'd love to go for a visit just to see the changes in last 35 years...
