Pagan is a volcanic, uninhabited island located in Mariana Islands archipelago, Pacific Ocean. The island covers a total area of approx 47,23 km2 (18,24 ml2).

  • Pagan Island belongs to the Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands. It was formerly inhabited, but the inhabitants were evacuated because of volcanic eruptions in 1981.
  • Pagan Island is situated about 320 km (200 ml) north of Saipan Island, the main of Northern Mariana Islands and is the 4th largest of the Northern Marianas. It is actually a double island which consists of a pair of stratovolcanoes joined via a narrow strip of land with a width of just 600 m (1,968 ft). 
  • Pagan has 2 large lakes. In the 1970s Inner Lake (Laguna Sanhalom) had an area of 17 ha (42 acres) and 23 m (75 ft) depth. Laguna Lake (Laguna Sanhiyon) on the west coast had an area of 16 ha (40 acres) and 20 m (66 ft) depth. Both lakes feature brackish water.
  • In 2013 the United States Naval Command filed a proposal to obtain Pagan for a new group of live-fire and maneuver RTAs (Ranges and Training Areas). The proposal spawned the online community Our Islands are Sacred as well as petition on Change.org. Rallies against it were held by Roots Action, Save Pagan Island, Sierra Club, Care2Make a Difference.
