Overview of Command Ridge

Command Ridge, where the Japanese kept watch in the 1940s, is Nauru's highest point, with an elevation of 65 metres (213 ft). The Japanese occupation of Nauru only lasted four years, but reminders of their time here can be seen by the big rusted WWII guns and wreckage that still remain. Although the view from the Ridge is breathtaking, scout the area and you may still be able to spot numerous war relics such as cartridge cases, bits of wreckage, including two large rotating six-barrel weapons (that once fired 40kg shells), bottles, and even rice bowls. Meander along the visible track south along the Ridge and you will come across a communications bunker that you can enter with a flashlight. Look closely and you'll see some Japanese writing. Battle through some vegetation and you may be able to stand on the concrete roof of the bunker and be rewarded with a truly 'commanding' view. Make history come alive by spending an afternoon exploring the Ridge and you may be able to spot more battle artifacts obscured by foliage and fallen trees. Nauru's past is just waiting to be rediscovered.

Vera H. wrote about Bubble Bay Spa:

"We stopped at the Bubble Bay Spa to have a picnic after snorkeling at Champagne Beach. Bubble Bay was a fantastic little natural hot pool. You get a great view of the bay & the mountains while you soak in the calm,warm waters. The water & the beach were very clean. I overheard other people talking about another hot pool farther up the mountain in Soufriere. But they said it was a bunch of cement pools that seemed dirty. I'm glad we went to the Bubble Bay Spa :D
