Cocos (Keeling) Islands


The Cocos (Keeling) Islands are located in the Indian Ocean, directly south of Burma and the western tip of Indonesia. A territory of Australia, the 27 islands sit on top of a volcanic seamount surrounded by pristine gardens of hard, soft and fan corals. Only 2 of the 27 islands are inhabited and combined, have a population of about 600 people. 80% of the locals are Cocos Malay, and speak a Cocos dialect of Malay, although English is widely spoken.

There is plenty to do on these beautiful untouched islands. If it’s a tranquil getaway you’re seeking; spending your days relaxing on empty beaches, watching incredible birdlife, learning about the culture and traditions on Home Island of the Cocos Malay locals or exploring the uninhabited islands by canoe. If it’s a bit more adventure and excitement that you’re after, try your hand at diving, snorkelling, kitesurfing, fishing, stand-up paddle boarding and more!


Diving can be done all year round, with water temperature ranging from 26 – 29°C. The visibility is normally 20-30 metres and suitable to all training levels. Find steep, crystal clear drop-offs on which all manner of sea creatures can be found. Spot sharks, turtles, manta rays, schooling barracuda, big-eye trevally, dog-tooth tuna and dolphins. There is even a lone dugong named Kat, who has been known to greet divers when visiting the islands. On top of the marine life, expect fantastic coral garden with over 100 species of corals that have been recorded. It is amongst the gorgonian fans and soft leather corals that one can find a myriad of colour marine life including damselfish, parrotfish, angelfish, nudibranchs, octopus and more. If it’s untouched, pristine dive sites that you’re after, The Cocos Islands are the choice for you.
