Midway Islands, Pacific
Midway Atoll (also known as Midway Island and Midway Islands; Hawaiian: Pihemanu Kauihelani) is a 2.4-square-mile (6.2 km²) atoll in the North Pacific Ocean, near the north-western end of the Hawaiian archipelago, about one-third of the way between Honolulu, Hawaii, and Tokyo, Japan.
Midway Atoll is an unorganized, unincorporated territory of the United States, former home of the Midway Naval Air Station.
It consists of a ring-shaped barrier reef and several sand islets. The two significant pieces of land, Sand Island and Eastern Island, are habitat for millions of seabirds.
