Gilbert Islands are home to the vast majority of Kiribati's residents, and their impressive community spirit and native traditions make the country what it is. Head into the villages to socialize with some of the best fishers in the world, then sail out onto the lagoon to give it a go yourself. Relax on the sandy beaches, watch traditional performances, and shop for locally made handicrafts. Tourism on Gilbert Islands is probably the most developed in Kiribati, so you can take advantages of a number of conveniences, travel services, and accommodations here.
