Nauru on a World Map

Nauru is a small island country and microstate located in Micronesia. Its coastline measures just 30 kilometers (19 mi) in the South Pacific Ocean. Nauru is near the Marshall Islands to the north, Tuvalu to the southeast, as well as the Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea to the southwest.

It occupies an area of just 21 square kilometers (8.1 sq mi) which makes it the smallest island country. Additionally, this makes it the smallest country that is not a city-state. The (de facto) capital is Yaren, which is a district in the southwest of the island.

Nauru lies only 53 kilometers (33 mi) south of the equator so its climate is tropical. From November to February, it’s the monsoon rainy season for the island country. Island Ring Road circles the entire perimeter of the island for about 19.5 kilometers. This means you can’t even run a half marathon around the island.
