Find Tourism and Travel partners in Nauru
Tourism is a new and developing sector of Nauru’s economy following redevelopment of the island’s economy after the decline of phosphate mining. Visitors to the island are currently few, offering the intrepid tourist a real chance to get ‘off the beaten track’. Formerly known as Pleasant Island, Nauru is a Pacific Island like no other, offering glimpses of its previous lush natural environment in contrast with the effects of years of industrial involvement.
Previously the government did not focus on establishing Nauru as a tourist destination. However, more recently tourism has been highlighted as an important industry for development and investment, as described in Nauru’s National Sustainable Development Strategy which focuses on niche tourism for deep-sea fishing, game fishing, diving and sight-seeing. There is also great scope for investment in ecotourism. Additionally, cultural and historical tourism is a focus and since this is a relatively new industry in the country travellers are likely to get a unique and genuine view of Pacific culture, as well as aspects of WWII history. The Director of Tourism, part of the Department of Industry and Economic Development, is responsible for implementing development strategy and running the Discover Nauru tourism website.
