With a total population of about 600, these coral atolls found between Australia and Sri Lanka are perfect for nature lovers who don't mind getting a little sand in their shorts. Are you looking to party underwater with the fish rather than at a nightclub? Look no further than a Cocos Islands holiday.
In a territory made up on 27 islands, your days are sure to be spent by the sea. Splurge on a deep-sea diving adventure with the money you saved with our Cocos Islands package deals. Then spend a relaxing day on the soft, sandy shores. If you're still feeling adventurous the next day, head inland and channel your inner Tarzan in the jungle. Take a drive to Pulu Keeling National Park in one of Wotif’s Cocos Islands car hire options, where you'll hike among friendly critters and search for blow holes while surrounded by lush tropical scenery in every direction.
There are several water adventure companies to help you make the most of out your time seaside. Hire a guide to navigate the smaller islands on a motorised boat, snorkel in the crystal waters over shipwrecks from WWII or simply take in the view while staying dry in a clear-bottom boat. If you can't be by the sea without a fishing line in the water, never fear. Cocos Islands holidays offer many opportunities for deep-sea fishing expeditions, and even classes to help you prepare and cook your catch for dinner upon your return.
You can't leave the Cocos Islands without bringing home a souvenir to remember your holiday. Head to the visitor centre first, where you can browse the small crafts and souvenir shops for hours. There are no malls or majors shopping centres on the island, but that just means more opportunity for hand-crafted treasures!
While many Cocos Islands hotels offer in-house dining, why not explore some nearby restaurants? The most popular restaurants and cafes on the island serve fresh seafood in breezy outdoor seating arrangements. Leave your high heels and fancy dinner wear behind for the Cocos Islands' relaxed, toes-in-the-sand dining experiences.
If staying up late listening to waves crash outside your window or walking along the beach under the full moon is your idea of nightlife, Cocos Islands holiday packages will make you feel right at home. For those who prefer imbibing and making new friends, there are a few small bars where you can hang your (beach) hat for the evening.
You could be swaying in a hammock along with the palm trees, so hurry up and book Cocos Islands packages on Wotif.
