Nauru
A boat cradles into the country, burdened under the weight of large swordfish and tuna well-grown. Up on the balcony, you can look at the 30 km long belt of sandy beaches that turns a circle Nauru coastline. Holiday on Nauru. And the Pacific Ocean on all sides.

Nauru, with its approx. 20 square kilometers and 13 000 inhabitants the third smallest country. Previously øyrepublikken also known under the alluring name of Pleasant Island. It was the English captain and explorer John Fearn who gave it that name, perhaps because of the wide sandy beaches that characterize the Nauru coast all the way around and are ideal starting points for fishing, diving and snorkeling. If you require assistance to identified the best places, it is most likely the largest city Nauru Yaren, but Anibare Bay is Nauru's best beach. Here you can sit back and enjoy your holiday and the views to the Pacific Ocean.

Mid-island 60 meter high plateau, consisting of guano - bird droppings dry deposited over many years - the recovered phosphate. The phosphate was previously a source of wealth, but it was poorly managed, and now is the largest phosphate reserves are exhausted. It must not hold a from going on a voyage of discovery in this exciting area.

Every day, piles of barracudas and various forms of marlin (sailfish) and tuna hauled out of the water - enough for many meals food. But the picture deceive. Fish and frigate birds have no way to cover the islanders' food needs, and both wet and clean drinking water must be fetched from outside. The nearest neighbor Kiribati is 300 km away.
