Nauru is a relatively small oval-shaped island in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. The island is encircled by coral reefs, which are visible at low tide and dotted with pinnacles. The reefs separate the deep water from the seaside and lead to a sandy beach near the coastline. The coral reef has prevented the building of a seaport, although a number of channels in reefs allow small boats to get through to the island. The highest point of the island is in the plateau, and the only fertile coastal strip on Nauru provides good opportunities for agricultural activity and growing of coconut palms. The land surrounding Buada Lagoon is famous for bananas, pineapples, vegetables, and pandanus trees. The population of Nauru is concentrated in the coastal belt and around Buada Lagoon.

Nauru offers travelers secluded beaches, coral reefs and atolls. The clean water provides good conditions for sport fishing and makes an incomparable appeal to fans of recreation.
Yaren is a small and boring town, and its sights can be done in a couple of hours, visiting two museums of Japanese arms and numerous bunkers and caponiers left intact after World War II.
Anibare Bay is the best beach of Nauru, but if you swim there, you have to be careful because the ocean currents near its shores can sometimes be dangerously strong and unpredictable. This beach has excellent facilities for passive recreation with pure coral sand, lots of hot equatorial sun and the shadows of life-saving palm trees.

The central plateau of Nauru is a red-hot wasteland of white rocks, fossilized coral pinnacles, deep pits and quarries for the extraction of phosphate rock. Nauru is a prime example of the influence of mining industry and devastated ecology on the life of the island. In the next few years, the government intends to reduce devastating effects of mining and turn the lunar landscapes of the island into a tropical paradise, which would be a remarkable feat. Sport fishing in the surrounding waters is the best pastime on the island. Due to the large depth, marlin, sailfish and yellow tuna are found in abundance near the coast, helping to enjoy the special flavor of sea fishing. Diving off the coast of the island also attracts many tourists, and the harbor area Yarena is especially good for this purpose. The abundance of underwater caves is an amazing view to enjoy. The local instructors will help the beginners to train and improve their skills if the water flows are strong. You can make a mini-cruise on a yacht around the island for just one day, or relax on the golf course or tennis courts - all the conditions for this have been created.

The pride of the Nauru people and their national symbol, to which they owe their economic well-being is birds. Many migratory bird species winter in Nauru, seasonally increasing the local population for many thousands of head and putting, however, much pressure on the ecology of the island, unable to effectively feed a large number of birds. The local songbird, 'Cane Nightingale', is also known as the 'canary of Nauru'. It is one of the rarest birds in the world. The islanders often keep frigate birds (Nauru's national symbol) in their homes as a normal pet, which is not surprising as the birds have been domesticated for centuries.
