Tarawa Atoll

2.6
The capital of Kiribati, Tarawa Atoll has an administrative and cultural importance to the country as a whole and deserves to be explored by those visiting the islands. While the southerly sections of the atoll are home to the parliament buildings and facilities, many of the northern parts resist the trappings of modern life, offering visitors a glimpse into the native culture. Relax with locals on beaches under the shade of coconut trees, and supplement your Tarawa Atoll trip with healthy portions of the local cuisine. The scene of a bloody and pivotal battle between the U.S. and Japan during World War II, the islands exhibit scenes and artifacts that inform, educate, and commemorate. Make the most of your holiday in Tarawa Atoll by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Republic of Kiribati travel tool.
