Beach life on the Cocos Keelings

Many Australians might not have even heard of the Cocos Keeling Islands, but these islands in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Western Australia, have a lot to offer. With two atolls and 27 coral islands, aquatic adventurers will be in their element with spectacular snorkelling, world-class diving, excellent fishing and kitesurfing. It’s not all action stations, with the empty beaches an alluring place to relax. Catch the ferry to Home Island – one of only two inhabited islands – and learn about the culture of the Cocos Malay people, or visit Cossies Beach on Direction Island, a beach named as the best in Australia by Tourism Australia’s Aquatic and Coastal Ambassador, Brad Farmer.
