Covering the land area just over 17 square kilometers in size, Ngiwal is the second smallest state. Ngiwal extends from the coast to the central divide. It is bordered by the lagoon on the east, Melekeok on the south, Ngaraad on the north and Ngardmau on the west. Ngiwal's terrain includes a broad, sandy plain along the coast, and forested hills towards the interior. The modern village of Ngiwal is located on the board section of a coastal plain north of the point known as Bkulatabriual and comprises the traditionalvillages of Ngermechu (South) and Ngercheluuk. It is believed that these traditional villages were relocated to the coast, from their positions on the lower slopes of the coastal ridge in the mid-nineteenth century.
