Travel to Nauru

The Republic of Nauru, which used to be called Pleasant Island, is located in the Central Pacific and part of Micronesia. It’s the smallest state in the South Pacific and the third-smallest populated state in the world today. It gained its independence in 1968.

Because of its size and generalized isolation, Nauru lacks much of the infrastructure of its neighbors. This makes it more of a rugged adventure than a resort holiday, but that can be to your advantage. An average of 200 people visit this island every year to experience its coastal beaches and traditional Polynesia culture.

Just two hotels serve the island, but the amenities you’d expect are available. Car rentals, a laundry, taxi service, and restaurants which serve traditional and Western cuisine are readily accessible. You’ll find all-weather tennis courts and barbecues an option as well. The hotel bar at the Menen Hotel is the only nightclub on the island.

This means you’ll have access to the beaches and their salty breezes mostly to yourself. Sunsets are absolute perfection on Nauru, especially when reflected amongst the rocky monoliths that dot portions of the shoreline.

Mining has been a way of life on Nauru for generations, so exploring the Central Plateau makes for an engaging trekking experience. During the second world war, the Japanese occupied this island, so you can see the old gun placements that were used to defend their position. Then make sure to enjoy the serenity of Anibare Bay and its wide stretch of beach.

Nauru may not be a popular destination, but it does offer a place for quiet contemplation and peace. If you want to go somewhere that is off the radar of the average traveler, this small island nation is the perfect opportunity.
