Trails: Indian Ocean Islands

Christmas Island is one of nature’s most impressive feats, an island full of natural wonders: from the unique annual red crab migration to rare and unusual birds and glorious deserted beaches where the only footprints in the sand are those made by nesting turtles. With so many endemic species, the island is often referred to as the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean. Yet it also displays a curious amalgam of cultures, history and industry, emerging as a place where all these elements create a truly unusual travel experience.

Natural, uncrowded stretches of endless, white sandy beach. Warm, crystal clear waters teeming with precious marine life in a kaleidoscope of colours. Peace, palm trees, far horizons and destination that feels real under perfect skies. Welcome to a tropical escape that’s all yours. The Cocos Keeling Islands lie in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, kissed by the sun and caressed by fragrant trade winds. Offering spectacular snorkelling, world-class diving, excellent fishing and the adrenalin-rush of kitesurfing; immerse yourself in a tropical island landscape.
