Nauru was once the richest nation in the Pacific through its phosphate mining. Stocks have dried leaving a mostly arid landscape up so the island has little to attract the tourist but if you are looking for somewhere quiet and isolated, you will be welcomed by the locals. It features a coral reef and white-sand beaches fringed with palms, including Anibare Bay on the east coast. Inland, tropical vegetation surrounds Buada Lagoon. The rocky outcrop of Command Ridge, the island’s highest point, has a rusty Japanese outpost from WWII. The underground freshwater lake of Moqua Well lies amid the limestone Moqua Caves.
