Experience breathtaking wilderness and a cultural fusion of Malay, Singaporean, Australian and Chinese culture on Christmas Island.

Cocos (Keeling) Islands With just 144 visitors at any one time, dive into a remote paradise with a tropical climate, crystal clear waters, wildlife, culture and endless white-sand beaches.

It’s a laid back way of life on Cocos. A place for bare feet, days lazing under the palms and a feeling of stepping back in time. Of the 27 islands that make up Cocos, two have been crowned Australia’s best beaches. Explore both and island hop with local skippers, meet friendly Cocos Malay locals and get up close with wildlife in one of the world’s largest marine parks that’s home to thousands of turtles, tropical fish, mantas and blooming coral gardens. 


Adventure Awaits A true escape from the beaten path, where you can explore or simply take a breath.

Adventurers on Cocos can kite surf during the trade wind season, take part in some of Australia’s best fishing and birdwatching, and island hop to some incredible snorkel and dive spots. There’s also the world’s only golf course set over an international runway. On Christmas, go on spectacular hiking trails, discover an underwater paradise with over 60 uncrowded dive sites, and visit during nature’s miracles like the annual crab migration.

It is rare, in this day and age, to come upon a place so delightful in both looks and temperament that, on the very first sighting, one’s jaw does genuinely drop.

If going with the flow is how you roll, you will love the Cocos Keeling Islands. They have a small – very small – country town vibe. Your activities revolve around the exquisite lagoon whether they be snorkelling, diving, fishing, parasailing, or just relaxing under a coconut palm reading a book while inhaling the frangipani infused air

Scuba diving at Cocos Keeling islands is nothing short of spectacular. Fabulous visibility, pristine coral reefs, abundant marine life and all the trappings of a tropical paradise without the flashy resorts. Yes, it is isolated and it takes some effort to get there, but this is more than offset by the quality of the diving, the friendly locals and the very laid back and relaxing ambience of the entire place. It is quirky, fun and a great place for a holiday. We will return and soon

Don’t miss this place. My wife and I recently spent a fantastic week on Cocos Keeling Islands. We took the opportunity to take the twice weekly ferry service from West Island to Direction Island... we loved it so much we came back for a second time.

Home Island is definitely quieter than West Island with religion a big part of daily life but the locals were so friendly and welcoming. It was so nice to be able to swim straight off the shore in amazing turquoise water while we cooked BBQs at sunset. Highly recommended!
