Maiana Vacation Packages
Maiana is situated 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of Tarawa, the national capital.
To really understand the Kiribati lifestyle go a bit further afield and discover the other parts of the region. Tarawa, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south, and Bairiki, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south of Maiana are good spots to check out if you have the time.
Kiribati is a good spot for those with an interest in open-air museums.
If you're seeking an escape from sightseeing, why not try the local watersports? Freediving and surfing are both popular here.
Trying local food is one of the keys to getting to know the area in which you are traveling. So, make sure you visit some of the region's restaurants and cafés. Locals in this area regularly use tuna and coconut in their kitchen. Two of the regional specialties to order are palu sami (baked coconut cream and onions wrapped in taro leaves) are roasted lobster tails with coconut curry. Pandanus (fruit), is the perfect way to wrap up your meal. To finish your experience, try a kava (juice made plant roots). It is a popular non-alcoholic drink here.
No matter how far you have come and no matter how long you have to spend here, great memories of Maiana will remain with you for a long time.
