Information from the Foreign Office about your Nauru trip:

Nauru is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean with around 15,000 inhabitants. Nauru is the smallest republic in the world in terms of area and borders at a greater distance on the Solomon Islands in the south, Kiribati in the east, the Marshall Islands in the north and Micronesia in the west.

The country's two official languages are English and Nauruan, and the Australian dollar is used as payment.

Nauru is the top of an extinct volcano that rises to 60 meters above sea level. On the partly very narrow coastal strip there are white sandy beaches with numerous coconut palms; in the higher altitudes, hibiscus plants, rosewoods and fig trees grow in addition to coconut palms. Off the coast of Nauru, there are also significant numbers of blue corals and crustaceans.

The most important economic sectors in Nauru are phosphate mining, fishing and a small amount of agriculture, where, among other things, vegetables, pineapples, coconut palms and bananas are grown.

The unofficial capital of Nauru is the Yaren district, but there is no official capital in the small island state. Around half of the country's residents live in Yaren, where the police station, the parliament building, the radio station, various administrative offices, the community center, the Moqua Cave, the Nauru Government House and the Nauru airport are located. Other sights on the island include the Buada Lagoon, the Japanese cannons and wartime bunkers, the mine in the central plateau and the beach in Anibare Bay.

Nauru has an international airport, which is mainly served by the local Nauru Airlines.

In January 2019, the Republic of Nauru was another stop on my big Pacific tour. Due to the flight situation, I had to decide beforehand between a stay of a few hours or one of four days. Because I didn't want to spend a full four days alone on a small Pacific island, I decided on the much shorter option.

The interior of Nauru has been significantly affected by years of phosphate mining, and dilapidated port facilities are also a reminder of the island state's glory days. The island is now actually only known as an Australian reception camp and is dependent on international help.

There was actually nothing worth seeing on the island of Nauru other than the beautiful coast and the remnants of the phosphate mining era, so in retrospect my decision was right not to spend any more time there.

After my stay in Nauru, I had a short flight marathon, with a total of five flights to the French overseas territory of Wallis and Futuna.
