Republic of Kiribati is one of Oceania’s poorest countries. That said, there aren’t many countries where the people are more friendly. The state comprises 32 atolls and one raised coral island, Banaba.
Kiribati has some beautiful beach scenery. The climate is pleasant from April to October, with predominant northeastern winds and stable temperatures close to 30 °C (86 °F). From November to March, western gales bring rain.
