Abaiang is located some 45 miles (72 kilometers) from Tarawa, the national capital.
Remember that staying in one place can only ever give you a narrow window into the wider qualities of a region. So be sure to enjoy Kiribati's range of sights and attractions. Marakei, 19 miles (31 kilometers) to the west, and Betio, 45 miles (72 kilometers) to the north of Abaiang are good places to visit if you're keen on learning more about this region.
Experience a little local culture with a little sunshine and fresh air at Kiribati's ever-popular open-air museums.
When the weather is fine, head to the area's much-loved waterways for a few hours of snorkeling or freediving.
Get to the core of the Kiribati food culture by taking your tastebuds for a tour of the regional cafés and restaurants. Cooks in this area regularly use tuna and coconut in their meals. Palu sami (baked coconut cream and onions wrapped in taro leaves) and roasted lobster tails with coconut curry are much-loved options to taste. Pandanus (fruit) is a local dessert. Kava (juice made plant roots) is a good option to order at any time of day.
Your time in Abaiang will provide you with breathtaking photos and delightful memories that you'll cherish for years to come!
