Destination Information for Kiribati

With remote, deserted islands offering idyllic lagoons and pristine white beaches, Kiribati is a paradise for divers, bird-watchers and fishing enthusiasts. This island republic in the Central Pacific ocean is made up of 33 atolls and isles along the equator. There is not much in the way of a tourism industry here, making Kiribati even more attractive for travellers who yearn for an unspoilt, authentic destination. Most visitors head to Christmas Island, also known as Kirimati, as the other islands in the group are more remote and harder to navigate.

The capital, Tarawa, is situated in the Western island chain known as the Gilbert Islands. This is one of the most densely-populated places in the world, and is severely poverty-stricken as a result. The people are friendly and welcoming, however, and you’ll find that most speak some English. Kiribati was the scene for many battles during World War II, and many significant sites still remain today, including coastal defences, bunkers, shipwrecks and plane wrecks.

The beaches and lagoons of Kiribati are ideal for sunseekers and marine wildlife enthusiasts, where you can take a boat out around the shores. Kiribati is home to the world’s largest marine protected area around the group known as the Phoenix Islands. This peaceful and picturesque group of islands is truly a place to forget the troubles of modern life and embrace nature.
