West of Christmas Island in the tropical Indian Ocean, are the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, the most Western part of Australia. This chain of 27 islands form around the ring of an extinct volcano and offer the quintessential tropical holiday destination with gorgeous white sandy beaches, most of which are uninhabited. West Island is home to part of the local population including the airport, and will be your first stop. Most of the accommodation properties are located on West Island, including many of the tourist services and amenities.There are plenty of beaches and coastline to explore either on foot, bike, scooter or with a vehicle. Home Island, which is home to the Cocos Malay community and the seat of the Clunies-Ross dynasty, Oceania House, is regularly serviced with a ferry across the lagoon. Take a tour with a local guide, visit the museum, walk around their interesting island home and definitely experience a way of life not offered anywhere else in Australia. Fishing, diving, boat trips, canoeing, kayaking, snorkelling and island hopping are just a few of the things that you can do on Cocos to ensure you maximise your tropical island experience.
