Midway is a small American atoll in the Pacific. For a long time it was not open to visitors, but it can now be reached by plane from Honolulu. The island offers one of the world's most spectacular wildlife experiences. Nearly two million birds call it home for much of each year, including the world's largest population of Laysan Albatross, or "gooney birds". Endangered Hawaiian monk seals, green sea turtles and spinner dolphins inhabit Midway's crystal blue lagoon.
