"The westernmost group of islands in Kiribati" Gilbert Islands by Rusket

Gilbert Islands Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 37 photos


The main island Tarawa, with Bonriki International Airport.

During our 3 1/2 week stay on the Gilberts we used Tarawa as our base, and made two journeys: To Abaiang and to Butaritari. Pictures from these journeys are in my travelogues here, while Tarawa has it's own page.

See also my general Kiribati page, and my Betio and Bairiki pages.

Jim35 has a page about his life as a child on the atoll Beru

    No direct connection by air, you must go via Nauru.

    Doesn't look like there is a rush going on at the International Airport :-} Great pics. How are the connections with the Marshalls?
