Millennium Atoll is such an amazing place, and we have been lucky enough to spend the last two days in this location. We found ourselves in of the most remote places on earth. The atoll formally known as Caroline Island, forms a part of the Southern Line Islands of Kiribati. It was renamed because its location and time zone meant it was the first place on earth to tick over into the new millennium. We were certainly in a unique part of the world, you do not have travel too far to move between four different time zones.
Millennium Atoll’s location and lack of any human residents make it such an interesting place to visit for nature lovers. There is a 12 nautical mile no-fishing-zone around the island in an attempt to protect it and maintain it as one of the most pristine water environments on the planet.
