Travel Guide Overseas Territories Overseas Territories Clipperton



Clipperton, although offcially an overseas possession of France, is located far away from the mother country. The nearest piece of land is Socorro Island, Mexico, at almost 1000 kilometers to the north.
The island itself is an atoll of about 9 square kilometers and is uninhabited. Apart from military personnel and scientist/researchers, there are almost no possibilities to get to the island and generally is not permitted as well.
The island has a tropical climate with generally warm, humid conditions and a wet season between May and October, with possible hurricanes. Although the temperature hoovers arond 30 degrees Celsius during most days, the constant breeze cools things of a bit.
