Tourism in Nauru


Nauru is a 21km² island in the Pacific, located halfway between Australia and Hawaii. The large skeletal remains of the island’s mining infrastructure contrast the green sea cliffs, coral reefs and wild coastline. The lack of heavy tourist traffic means Nauru’s reefs are relatively unspoilt and provide excellent diving opportunities with a variety of marine life. Deep sea game fishing for marlin, yellowfin tuna, skipjack and barracuda is possible on privately-owned boats hired out by locals. Nauru also offers swimming in its crystal-clear waters, relaxing on white sand beaches or  hiking through the pinnacles of the phosphate mines or along the eight miles of coconut-ringed seaside. Artisans sell artwork and crafts on street-side stalls and there is a large collection of remnants from Japan’s occupation of Nauru during WWII, especially along Command Ridge, Nauru’s highest point and the location of the Japanese lookout.
