Bikini Atoll

Bikini Atoll is the marker of where Bikini Bottom is located. It has been seen as just a small island with three Coconut Palm Trees, and is seen at the beginning of almost every episode. The only known locals are the two seagulls that attacked SpongeBob and his friends in the episode "Pressure." In many episodes that involved breaking the surface, or flying out of the water, the island is shown in the background.

When SpongeBob and the gang break the surface, they become puppets on sticks, or live action characters (SpongeBob turns into a real kitchen sponge, Patrick into a dried starfish, Sandy a squirrel puppet with a helmet, and so on). It also appears in a scene in the SpongeBob Theme Song. In the 1940s and 1950s, it had  been a place for nuclear bomb tests.

Except for the occasional seagull or pelican, it is uninhabited.

In "Squidward the Unfriendly Ghost," after SpongeBob and Patrick put Squidward "to rest" by blowing a giant bubble engulfing Squidward and bringing him up to the surface, Bikini Atoll is practically swarming with seagulls.


  • In "Big Pink Loser," the island was featured when Patrick jumped out of the water to tell about "his" newly attained award, only to almost suffocate from lack of water moments later.
  • The island is seen in The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie when Hasselhoff arrives with both SpongeBob and Patrick to bring them back to Bikini Bottom.
  • The island appeared in "Truth or Square" when Patchy the Pirate went looking for SpongeBob, who didn't arrive at his TV Extravaganza.
  • Bikini Atoll was an island that was used for nuclear bomb testing in the 40s and 50s.
