The Republic of Nauru has only limited tourism attractions and destinations. It is known for its vast beaches, phosphate mining sites and marine wildlife. Some of the major destinations include the Anibare Bay, the central plateau, the Japanese Guns, the Government and Parliament House, the Moqua Well and the Buada Lagoon. The main tourist activities are fishing, scuba diving and hiking. The island nation has a total of only 200 tourists visiting every year with the majority originating from Australia.
