Unique Nauru Extraordinary Nauru is a tiny island with a big history and even bigger hospitality. Nauru is located in the deep, blue Pacific Ocean waters north of the Solomon Islands. An uplifted coral formation, Nauru is just 21 kilometres square and lies some 40 kilometres south of the Equator. One of the smallest nations on earth, with a mostly Micronesian population of around 10,000 people, Nauru offers travellers a truly unique Pacific Island visit. Discover excellent deep sea fishing, scuba dive amazing ocean depths, take a tour of the island’s past economic mainstay the phosphate mines or simply experience a holiday in a world far from your own.

Climate:Nauru’s weather is tropical with temperatures ranging between 24.4 Celsius and 33.9 Celsius.  Heat is kept temperate by cooling sea breezes. The tropical weather has a monsoonal pattern, with a rainy season from November to February.  North-east trade winds blow from March to October and average humidity is 80%.

Accommodation: Holiday makers, vacationers, business or intrepid travellers, Nauru accommodates a variety of visitors in its two hotels: the recently refurbished Menen Hotel and OD-N-Aiwo Hotel.

Entry requirements: Visitors need to apply for a visa before their arrival, through one of the government's overseas offices. For more information, contact:
