Council Office on Abaiang Island

Taburao is a village on Abaiang, atoll in Kiribati.[1] There are 322 residents of the village (2010 census).[1] The nearest villages are Ewena and Morikao to the north; and Tebero and Taburoa to the south.

The largest health centre on the atoll is located near the Island Council building. A medical assistant is in charge who assisted by a nursing officer and the centre is accessed by people from the villages of Taburao, Tuarabu, Tebero and Ewena.[1]

Apart from small breaks, the whole coastline from Tuarabu to Taburao on the lagoon side is eroding as the result of wave action.[1]
