Located near the geographical midpoint of the Pacific Island, Midway Atoll is the last of the volcanic sea mounts that form the Hawaiian Islands. It was also the site of the most decisive naval battle of World War II. Today, Midway is an internationally acclaimed wildlife refuge. The peaceful beaches are home to terns, albatrosses and myna birds. Over 250 species of fish frequent Midway's unique fringed reef, and Hawaiian monk seals and Hawaiian spinner dolphins frequent the azure waters. For World War II buffs, Midway still bears the marks of war, including the original 1941 Seaplane Hangar.
