The Cocos Keeling Islands Australia's last unspoilt paradise lies in the azure waters of the Indian Ocean.
Located a half-day flight from Perth and 900km from Christmas Island, the Cocos Keeling Islands are a group of 27 coral islands offering incredible marine and birdlife, adventure watersports, world-class snorkelling and fishing, and a community of friendly, laid-back locals.
The clear turquoise waters waters surrounding the islands form one of the largest marine sanctuaries in the world, covering a huge 467,054 square kilometres. With visibility at 25-30 metres on average, the lagoons offer a chance to get up close with blooming coral underwater gardens, over 500 species of vibrant fish, majestic manta rays, fat hawksbill and green turtles, and bottlenose dolphins.
The diversity of species in and outside of the surrounding lagoons make Cocos Keeling Islands a fishing paradise. Fishers can hunt for large bonefish, giant trevally, permit, milkfish, humphead wrasse, bluefin trevally, napoleon wrasse, triggerfish and more, with picturesque points to cast a line beachside and remote spots out on the lagoon and beyond where you'll be the only boat in sight.
With just 144 visitors at any one time, it's a different pace on Cocos. Relax on empty beaches and take a breath, explore uninhabited islands and wartime remnants, or check out Home Island to discover the culture and traditions of the Cocos Malay people.
