Darrit Island is located at the northeast of Majuro Atoll. Also known as "Rita Island".

Wartime History
During the Pacific War, occupied by the Japanese, who built a 400' pier, a narrow-gauge track from the pier leading to warehouses, a seaplane ramp, and two steel buildings. At one end of a cleared area a large concrete slab had been poured for a hangar and structural steel was stacked nearby, from which a warehouse was constructed. After occupation by Americans during 1944, some of the Japanese builidings were used.

Peace Park
Donated by the Japanese, located three miles from the airport.
