A vast majority of other island states in the Pacific are dependent on other countries for things such as stable currencies and security among other things. Nauru is quite different. It is completely independent country; the third-smallest independent republic in the entire world. So, for those looking to check it out, you’ll need a visa.
The island is actually small enough that things are mostly within walking distance. If you can’t walk there, you’ll need to find a place to rent a bike because there’s no public transportation. This adds a very quaint and homey feel to the Nauru’s ambiance.
Even though it may be small though Nauru is full of things to see and do. For those that love things like swimming, fishing, diving, and other water sports, you’ll have your hands full. The island is surrounded by a colorful and vibrant coral reef. Spending time on the island itself comes with just as many activities. You can hike some of its picturesque green areas, or even try to walk the entire circumference of the island, which is only 18km. On your evenings in, you can enjoy shopping, which is a vast array of arts and craft shops, making every dollar spent a contribution to the local economy.
