Nauru Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
A small isolated Central Pacific island, it lies some 26 miles south of the Equator and is only accessible by private boat or via Air Nauru. Air Nauru arrives from Brisbane/Honiara on Monday and Thursday and from Nadi/Tarawa on Tuesday and Friday.
The mining of phosphate has been the mainstay of the island's economy since the 1900s, providing the locals with a steady source of income. However funds from phosphate mining are virtually depleted and the island's fiscal resources are in dire straits.
