Abaiang

Abaiang (the name means ‘north land’) is the most easily accessed of the outer islands, but it still offers a typically remote experience. Small children shout a timid mauri to an I-Matang (white person) and women can be seen weaving thatch or salting clams to send to Tarawa. You can cycle up to the Catholic church, which has rainbow-colored window frames.
