Wake Island Travel Guide

Wake Island is a coral atoll located about 2/3 of the way from Honolulu to Guam. It is an overseas territory of the United States, administered by the United States Office of the Interior. There is no commercial air service to Wake Island, and the island has no tourism infrastructure, making it a difficult, and sometimes impossible, place to visit. You may be able to arrange a day tour of Wake Island through one of these international tour operators: Military History Tours.
