The latest “World Tourism Barometer” produced by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), places Spain as the second country with the most tourists in the world with 84 million visitors, after France.
However, there are other destinations that, for various reasons, are at the bottom of the aforementioned ranking. This is the case of Nauru, a small island that is part of Micronesia and is considered the country with the least tourism in the world. According to the Mirror, it registers an annual average of 200 tourists. A ridiculous number and far from the most popular destinations.
The aforementioned media pointed to the isolation, the lack of direct flights and the absence of tourist complexes as the reason for the lack of tourists in these paradises. Located on the Pacific Ocean, this country has an area of 21 square kilometers and a population of 11,000 people. One of its most famous characteristics is the appearance of its beaches.
With white sand and turquoise blue water, it is home to deep coral reefs, which are an attraction for divers. Regarding its history, in 1968 it achieved independence from Australia and various historians point out that it was a thriving phosphate mining center. Regarding its climate, it is tropical due to its proximity to the Equator line with frequent rains between November and February, as well as an average temperature between 24ºC and 30ºC.
Currently, it is a parliamentary republic with a parliament consisting of 18 members and elected by voting every three years. The government of Nauru consists of a maximum of six ministers. The president at the same time is the head of state and government, which is Russ Kun, winner of the Nauran election held last year.
