Undiscovered and infrequently visited, Nauru is a Pacific Island
South of the Marshall Islands, North of
the Solomons, Nauru lies at a longitude of 166°55' east. It is close to
42 kilometres south of the Equator and over 4,000 kilometres away
from its nearest neighbour Australia.
Isolated it may be, but Nauru has its own airline (Our
Airline), tropical weather and an interesting history. Nauru's
geographic isolation from other island neighbours has shaped its people, their
language and history.
Caught between trying to maintain an existence without further endangering
its fragile ecosystem and securing a future for its inhabitants and the island
itself, Nauru is turning to tourism for the first time. Nauru is opening
its doors to the outside world in the hope that the Nauruan people's peace
loving hospitality and big Pacific Island welcome will entice travellers to
sample a truly unique destination.
