Atmosphere

The spot is close to both the surf and the clinic in which you do not have to pay for medication.
There are 4 rental bungalows (raised floor huts)in which you can experience the way I-Kiribati people sleep in an open raised floor hut, roofed with thatches. If you do not prefer those, there is a small concrete house/building which can accommodate 5 people. This concrete house has louver windows and a ceiling. Both the windows and doors have fly-screens to avoid bugs to get in, especially flies and mosquitoes.
There is a 3 time meal. Your meal depends on whatever you like to eat, either canned foods or local foods. Local foods includes, fish, lobsters, shrimps, banana, taro, breadfruits, green leaves such as cabbage and of course vegetables like cucumber and sweet potatoes. You can have local drinks like coconuts, toddy, and toddy syrup (kamaimai) and also fermented toddy if you like.

General

This spot is the best in Fanning as there is access to the hospital and especially as the surf is right behind my place. It is in my backyard.
