Line Islands

From Wikivoyage
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Line Islands are a collection of 11 atolls in Kiribati.

Regions[edit]

Northern Line Islands

The Northern Line Islands also include Palmyra Atoll and Kingman Reef (which is underwater at high tide), which are U.S. dependencies.

The Central Line Islands of Jarvis Island, Malden and Starbuck, as well as the Southern Line Islands of Caroline, Flint, and Vostok are all uninhabited.

Understand[edit]

Kiribati's Line Islands atolls are in the UTC+14 time zone, the easternmost zone in use anywhere in the world, making them the first places on Earth to start each new calendar day.

Get in[edit]

Cassidy International Airport in Kiritimati (CXI IATA) is served only by Fiji Airways on its once-weekly Nadi (Fiji) – Kiritimati – Honolulu (Hawaii) route. Due to the great distance between the Line Islands and the rest of the country, and because the only other operational airports in Kiribati are found in the Gilbert Islands, there are no domestic flights. To reach the Gilbert Islands, travelers must fly via Nadi on Fiji Airways which operates a twice weekly Nadi–Tarawa flight.
