About Fanning Island, Kiribati

Fanning Island, one of the many coral atolls of the Republic of Kiribati, lies in the center of the Pacific Ocean. The island epitomizes the South Pacific with palm trees, blue lagoons, white sand beaches, and friendly locals. Tourism is very much in its infancy here; the majority of visitors are sea birds, including terns, shearwaters, and skuas.

Tender service or something was very poor. We were unfortunately one of the last ones to get off the ship and only had 2 hours there. It was very interesting and a very poor island.. Our group took about 65lbs. of crayons, color books, seeds, toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, hair ties, and things to the school and it is quite a little trek. The teachers were very grateful and happy to recieve the supplies. Do take some individually wrapped candy or trinkets for the kids, they speak no english and are willing to do about anything for coins or trinkets.

Other then Maui , this was our favorite port. The place is so remote and looks like Hawaii must have 200 years ago. Beautiful beach, warm water, friendly people, just not there long enough!!

A quiet, right out of turn of the century polynesia, island. The natives were extremely friendly. Visit the craft market and the "private beach".

I wouldn't worry about the shore excursion on this one. When you tender off the boat to the Island, NCL provides a lunch, there is a beach, and this is where the locals are, the school, and the churches.

A beautiful island but not worth the four days at sea that it required. We never got over to Napali Beach but were told it was beautiful. However, NCL provided beach chairs, refreshments and restrooms on the main beach. It didn't seem worth the $25 fee to tender to Napali Beach when all the facilities were at the main beach.
