Tarawa island

Ultimate guide (June 2020)
Tarawa - atoll in the Pacific Ocean - is the capital of Kiribati. Local landscapes are beautiful, but most of shore is heavily littered (as a result of overcrowding). It make sense to visit this place only if you are interested in military history. Famous Battle of Tarawa took place here in 1943. Few Japanese guns are located at Betio beach. Artifacts of that battle can be found in many other places. Beach and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
