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.

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 completely cool place to go and wonderful to just walk and snorkle and see the island. I would have liked a lot more time, and wished I had snorkled oceanside. It's an amazing opportunity to just see nature and one of the most remote places. We walked because bicycle rentals were so outrageous. This should be made reasonable of $10 a day, not an hour.

Relax at the beach and shop at the market. Do not negociate prizes because they do not accept that and prizes are really afordable and low

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.

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.
