Nauru - Off the beaten track


Central Plateau

Nauru's 'topside' is a burning wasteland of searing white rock, bizarre coral pinnacles and ugly, deep pits. Go and gawk at how mining has ravaged an island's ecology and culture. You should take a taxi to the plateau as it is very hot and dusty; there are also abyss-like craters, and packs of wild dogs roam the area. Within a few years the mining will have played out and, if it can be done, the return of this moonscape to a tropical haven will be a remarkable feat.
