Cocos Keeling

Why not combine a trip to Christmas Island with a visit to neighbouring Cocos?

The Cocos (Keeling) Islands are Christmas Island's neighbour, about 1000 km to the west. It's a paradise of white beaches, overlooking the waters of the Indian Ocean. Only two of the 27 islands are inhabited - the rest are waiting for you to explore them.

Offering spectacular snorkelling, diving, fishing and many other activities, the Cocos Keeling Islands are also a deeply tranquil holiday location. Relax on empty beaches, visit uninhabited islands by canoe or catch the ferry to Home Island and discover the culture and traditions of the Cocos Malay people.

For more information about the islands and how to get here visit the Cocos Keeling Islands website.

Pulu Keeling National Park

Because of its remote location and protected reef access to Pulu Keeling National Park is quite difficult. The journey from the main Cocos atoll to North Keeling Island takes 1.5 hours. Visitors get taken by inflatable boat to as close to the shore as is safe, and they must then swim through the surf over the reef to land on the island! Visitors must be guided around North Keeling Island by either park staff or a permitted tour guide. Find out more about Pulu Keeling National Park on our Corporate website.
