NAURU TRAVEL GUIDE

INTRODUCTION

Nauru is a tiny island country in Micronesia, northeast of Australia. It features a coral reef and white-sand beaches fringed with palms, including Anibare Bay on the east coast. Inland, tropical vegetation surrounds Buada Lagoon. The rocky outcrop of Command Ridge, the island's highest point, has a rusty Japanese outpost from WWII. The underground freshwater lake of Moqua Well lies amid the limestone Moqua Caves.

 

Although other island states may be smaller in area and/or less populous, they are all dependent territories of other countries, so Nauru keeps the title of the world's third-smallest independent republic.

WEATHER SYNOPSIS

As a tropical island situated no more than 33 miles south of the equator, Nauru experiences a constant hot and humid climate that averages 25°C throughout the year. The island’s two main seasons are wet from November to October and dry between March and October.

Northeast trade winds help cool the island slightly during the dry season, especially along the coast. Nauru rarely gets serious typhoons due to its location far from both the northern and southern hemisphere cyclone belts, but the low-lying coastal lands where most Nauruans live are subject to flooding and tidal surges.
