The people of Kiribati are highly skilled dancers, and traditional floor shows can be enjoyed during festive occasions or on request at the hotels in Tarawa and Christmas Island. Kamei (male dances) and Kabuti (female dances) are the most frequently performed of the traditional 'ruoia' dances. Women use distinctive Polynesian hand and hip movements.
Kiribati is said to have the finest crafts in the South Pacific; the weaving is particularly noted. Souvenirs such as shark-teeth swords, fans, mats, trays and wooden spears can be bought from outlets on Tarawa and Christmas Island.
The waters of Kiribati are home to a profusion of fish. In particular, the ocean around Christmas Island is abundant with sailfish, wahoo, yellowfin tuna, grouper, trevally, bonefish and sharks.
With its extensive reef system, Kiribati offers fine diving and snorkelling. There are professional services available on both Christmas Island and Tarawa; bottle and weight belts are supplied, but divers should bring their own regulators, masks and fins, as rental equipment is limited. There is good snorkelling around Buariki, both on the reef and in the lagoon.
Large bird populations of shearwater, petrel, noddys, frigates, tropic birds, terns and more can be found on Christmas Island. The rare Christmas Island warbler may also be spotted if you are lucky. There are birdwatching tours available from Fish and Wildlife Services.
