There are literally thousands of islands dotted around the perfect blue waters of the Pacific - from
tiny coral atoils that come and go with the tide to rugged volcanic outcrops like Kosrae and the islands of
Pohnpei. Between them, the islands of Air Nauru's Pacific offer a feast of beauty, history and adventure which
is unequalled by any other region on earth.
Lots To See, Lots To Do: Air Nauru
There are spectacularly beautiful waters to dive, magnificent jungles to trek; birds to watch, sunsets to dream about,
palm fringed beaches and a rich diversity of culture to observe and enjoy. Whether you're staying on one island, island-hopping or planning a stopover
on your way between east coast Australia or New Zealand and Manila or Hawaii, Air Nauru can fly you to a Pacific the average tourist rarely sees.
Coral pinnacles lend an eeriness to the landscape of Nauru, the airline's home base. They are
the legacy of a century of mining rich phosphate deposits which are now almost depleted.
In 1798, the english explorer, Captain John Fearn presumed to name Nauru "Pleasant Island". Nauru was
the leader in opening up the glories of the Central Pacific to travellers by estabilshing the region's
first modern international airline.
