Nauru Travel Vaccines and Advice
Located 42 kilometres south of the equator, Nauru is perfect for year-round visits thanks to its tropical climate. The typical landscape of the island is the coral limestone turrets that cover the plateaus. Whilst mining has destroyed both the country’s marine and natural resources, Nauru offers a coastal strip that curious travellers with a sense of freedom and authenticity choose to visit during the summertime. It is also possible to hike across the beautiful fertile coastal plains. Water sports enthusiasts will be thrilled by the opportunities at the Buada Lagoon, the only watershed in Nauru. If you visit Nauru, try to be conscious of the environment and remain as eco-friendly as possible.
