Map showing the location of Nauru.

Nauru is a tiny island nation in the Pacific Ocean, north east of Papua New Guinea. Its capital is Yaren. The island has rich phosphate deposits, but has been mostly mined out. There is not much tourism in Nauru, the only attractions being tours of the old phosphate mines and scuba diving.

Hotels and lodging[]

The Menen Hotel offers the highest spec accommodation. Others include the Od-n Aiwo Hotel and Ianepe court. See for details.


While many expect the Pacific to be a beachy paradise, unfortunately, Nauru is the exact opposite. While Nauru isn't a beachy paradise, that does not mean that there is nothing in Nauru. Because it is home to some World War II history buffs and urbexers.

However, here's a list of things that you can see:

  • Buada Lagoon
  • Aiwo Harbour
  • or Anibare Bay
