      Kiribati Aug 31, 2016 at 6:17 AM

      Hello everyone, i am looking for a travel agency that could help with all the logistic concerning this trip. I AM in Portugal, and i need to go to Kiritimati. I already know that i must catch the flight ti Kiritimati in nadi, Fiji. But since they only have one flight per week, i need to match that flight With availability of place to stay , but there are very few places in Kiritimati, and probably all booked. Can anyone help me with this?

    • Things to do in Christmas Island

      Kiribati Feb 4, 2014 at 3:21 PM

      Hello again!

      There is not much information on the internet Christmas Island, other than it is a destination to go fishing. What activities can be made in the island other than to go fishing? There is a beach where you can swim? kayak? boating, touring the island?

    • Tarawa or Christmas Island?

      Kiribati Dec 31, 2013 at 6:39 AM


      I want to visit Kiribati, but I wonder what is the difference between going to Tarawa or Chrismas Island.

      I would like to know the culture of Kiribati, but also like to explore the territory, and especially being on a beach and swimming and boating or kayaking.
      I have read that there are problems of sanitation in South Tarawa (the lagoon) but in North Tarawa is everything okay?

      Thank you very much!

      Air Pacific transit stop at Christmas Island

      Kiribati Sep 10, 2011 at 3:22 AM

      I'm travelling on the Air Pacific service from Nadi to Honolulu with the transit stop on Christmas Island. Given it's probably the only chance I'll ever get to be in such a remote place, does anyone know if you actually get off the plane? Or will my unique experience be captured with photos from the window of the 737!

      Kiribati in Sept

      Kiribati May 15, 2011 at 2:40 AM

      Hi again,

      having done Fiji before arriving in Kiribati, I'm going to be looking for a much less touristy, and more 'real' island experience. Planning to do Tarawa, Abiang and Marakei.

      Can anyone recommend any good accommodation/homestays (esp on Abiang/Marakei), and activities to do (anywhere).

      Also, I'm wanting to boat it between islands if possible. Does anyone know if I can get a boat to Abiang from the northern tip of Tarawa, or do I have to go from Betio area? Is it possible to boat between Abiang and Marakei etc?

      Finally, I don't really want to drive unless absolutely necessary so it'd be great if I could hire a bike. Is there anywhere on the islands i can hire a bicycle?

      Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    • About Abaokoro

      Tarawa Jan 6, 2011 at 6:00 AM

      Years ago (1950s) there used to be a hospital and a pharmacy on Abaokoro. Are they still there? Used to be run by Colonial Service I think. I believe the best way to get to Abaokoro from Tatawa is by boat from Bairiki. Is this a regular service, or run by fishermen?

      Gilbert Islands Jun 15, 2010 at 7:06 AM

      Having read A Pattern of Islands when I was 12, many years ago. It mesmerised me and
      I said to myself that one day If I could, I would travel there , I`ve talked about it off and off for years, never really imagining I might get there.

      I`m lucky enough to be retiring this August and want to fly to Kiribati and be able to visit China and Australia ( to visit our children who are working in those countries) en route. Does anyone know which flights would get me to the Gilbert Islands or if one of those round the world tickets would make more sense?
