When to Go to Nauru
Don't go from November to February. That's the cyclone season and even if you don't get a big storm it can still be unpleasantly humid. Go at any other time of the year, when the weather is tempered by easterly trade winds.
The three festivals islanders celebrate are Independence Day (31 January), Constitution Day (17 May) and Angam Day (26 October). Angam means 'homecoming', and this day commemorates the various times in Nauru's history when the size of the Nauruan population returned to 1500, thought to be the minimum number necessary for survival. Nauruans also celebrate Christmas and Easter.
