Destination Information for Nauru

The tiny island of Nauru is situated in the South Pacific Ocean, part of Micronesia, to the Northeast of Australia and South of the Marshall Islands. It is the world’s smallest independent republic, covering an area of just 21 square kilometres, and having gained its independence in 1968. It takes less than an hour to drive around the whole of Nauru, but despite the island’s tiny landmass there is plenty to see here if you like picturesque views, unspoilt sandy beaches and blue lagoons.

The most scenic spot on Nauru is the Buada Lagoon, the only body of water on the island. This stunning freshwater lagoon provides a wonderful photo opportunity, although, sadly, the water is not clean enough for swimming. There are tropical beaches in the area around Anibare Bay, to the East of the island, where the harbour is the best place for swimming.

Most visitors to Nauru are here on business or have an interest in World War II history – there’s not much for tourists other than the view. The island’s main source of income was previously from phosphate mining in the years following Nauru’s independence, but with natural reserves having been depleted, the country now relies on the sale of fishing licenses, and the controversial Offshore Processing Centre for Australia-bound asylum seekers.
