Funafuti, capital of Tuvalu#
Funafuti is an atoll and the capital of the island nation of Tuvalu. It has a population of about 6.000, making it the country's most populated atoll. Still, it is just a narrow strip of land between 20 and 400 metres wide, encircling a large lagoon 18 km long and 14 km wide. Although Funafati has an international aiport that can be reached a few times a week from Fiji, tourism plays no significtan role, with typically less then 400 tourists per year.
