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 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.

I know a lot of people complain about the travel time to come here, but my wife and I absolutely loved seeing such a primitive island. The water so clear and blue and beach was awesome too. The seas were rough, but it made for an amazing pool party. The pool turned into a wave pool and everyone instantly became best friends while enjoying the crazy seas. I loved seeing everyone stumbling back and forth in the halls trying to keep balance. Bad side would be if you get motion sick(which many did), but we have strong stomachs and had a great time
