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.

A fun place to visit, this is the only place that still has a true Island Culture. Just walked the local area, be sure to get your pasport stamped. Also send home a post card they say it will take three months to arrive.

It was so far off the beaten path, I sortta liked that. Nice people and great history but beaches were too crowded. You could tell NCL renovated the area inorder to bring people into the area.
