Bikini atoll was used extensively by the US forces as a nuclear testsite (1946 - 1959). The radiation contaminated site is currently abandoned and therefore still under US army control. Bikini is occasionally - and illegally - visited by sport divers. For further information check the Wikipedia "Operation Crossroads" article and others.
