A group of nine islands, totalling about 10 square miles and a population of 12,300, Tuvalu is the fourth smallest country (by size) in the world. Its highest elevation is abo…ut 15 feet above sea level and is subject to frequent flooding, not from sea water coming ashore but percolating up through the porous volcanic rock that form the islands. They are one of the places in the world specifically threatened by rising sea levels. Tuvaluan are a Polynesian people who have inhabited these islands for about 3000 years. The official language is Tuvaluan, but they also speak English. Because of their size and remoteness, they don't have a large tourist industry so travelers who are able to reach Tuvalu will benefit from unspoiled, uncrowded beaches. Only the main island has paved roads and there is a single airstrip which is often used as a road by the locals since there are only three arrivals and departures per week.
