For a genuine Kiribati vacation, make sure you venture beyond Kiritimati and taste the scenic and cultural treasures that this region has to offer.
Get outdoors and explore Kiribati's popular open-air museums.
Why not relax and enjoy during fun activities such as beach combing or wildlife watching. Both are well-loved options for both travelers and locals alike.
One of the joys of seeing the world lies in discovering new ways to enjoy food. Make sure you visit the region's cafés and restaurants. Two ingredients typically found in many Kiribati kitchens are tuna and coconut. Two of the local favorites worth tracking down are palu sami (baked coconut cream and onions wrapped in taro leaves) are roasted lobster tails with coconut curry. Pandanus (fruit), a great way to finish your meal. Afterwards, kick back by ordering a refreshing local kava (juice made plant roots).
Don't forget, if you plan to be in Kiritimati around the 12th of July, Independence Day will be celebrated at that time and banks, business and some attractions may have irregular opening hours.
There is a saying, the world is a book and those who don't take the time to travel stay on only one page. So book your journey and make the most of the experiences to be savoured in Kiribati.
