Most remote travel destination Nauru | If you like it rough and you have too much time, go to Nauru. Nauru is a small, very isolated western Pacific island with only 10,000 inhabitants. It lacks many of the tourist facilities of its larger neighbors Fiji, Cook Islands, and New Caledonia. Tourism is not a major contributor to the economy. In fact Nauru is the least popular tourist destination out there in Oceania, counting only 200 tourists a year. But surprise: It has an international airport! Four times per week Nauru Airlines operates between the island and Brisbane, Australia. There are two hotels in Nauru, the Menen and the Od-n-Aiwo. Hotel Menen even got a nightclub and an 8 by 4 meters swimming pool. In addition to this via booking.com you can book Ewa Lodge. And that’s pretty much it hotel wise.

What does drive tourists to Nauru? Deep sea game fishing, scuba diving and wreck diving. But be aware: A cup of coffee is US$7, milk costs US$20 a bottle, children watch cock-fights, and locals are predominantly obese, bringing at least twice as much to the scale as you. About a third of Nauru’s population suffers from diabetes.

Where to stay in Nauru

booking.com lists one aditional property apart from Eva Lodge and the two hotels mentioned earlier: the Meneng 1. It’s a very basic facility located at Island Ring Rd, Ibwenape, Nauru, Anibare – not too far away from the Australian Immigration Detention Center. A stay at Meneng 1 will cost you approx. US$100 per night. By the way, that Detention Center nearby was supposed to be closed in September 2017 but still operates, holding approx. 360 asylum seekers.
