Activities on Nauru
Holidaying on Nauru promises to be a unique experience but it still offers
all the benefits of 'island time' and Pacific Island relaxation. Relax
back and enjoy the tropical sunshine, snooze at your hotel or get out and about
and see the island. Here's a list things to do on extraordinary Nauru:
Deep sea game fishing
Locals with privately owned boats
hire out their vessels to take you deep sea game fishing on request. There
are a number of local people involved and it is best to organise your trip
through the staff at your hotel. Journeys to deeper waters surrounding
Nauru are undertaken dependent on availability of boats, weather and sea
conditions etc. However once out on the Pacific blue, anglers can catch a
great selection of fish including marlin, yellowfin tuna, skipjack, barracuda
Clear water and an unspoilt reef mean scuba
diving from Nauru is a popular activity. There is a variety of marine life
to be seen and one significant wreck to dive. Scuba diving equipment can
be hired on the island.
It's not a real vacation if you can't cool off
in the big blue...locals recommend the beach next to the Menen Hotel as the best
place to take a swim.
The central area of Nauru offers an interesting
walk around the pinnacles that make up the remains of the phosphate mine.
Menen Hotel organises walking tours through this area. Otherwise, the
island's green belt circles the island and provides roads for driving or
Shopping - arts and crafts
