It is home to several government offices, including the Parliament House, National Stadium, Australian High Commission and Taiwanese Embassy, police station, earth station, administration offices, and the airport. It has very limited tourist attractions, little is known, save for Moqua Well, a small underground lake that was used as the primary source of drinking water for inhabitants of Nauru during World War II. Nearby are the Moqua Caves, a series of underground caves below Yaren.

Other places worth seeing in Nauru are Anibare Bay’s tropical beaches; Anibare Harbour, which was largely financed by the Japanese government; and the Buada Lagoon, Nauru’s only body of water on the island – a stunning area in the lower middle of the island, and has a freshwater lagoon surrounded on all sides by dense palm trees and other vegetation. Note that it’s not suitable for swimming as the water is dirty, but nevertheless, still picture-worthy.
