The “jewel of the Indian Ocean”, rising a mere 3 meters above sea level offers visitors a relaxed safe island lifestyle where you can do as much or as little as you desire. The Cocos (Keeling) Islands is an external territory of Australia located approximately 2750km northwest from Perth, Western Australia. Its closest neighbor is another external territory, Christmas Island, which lies approximately 900km east-northeast from Cocos.
Cocos is famous for its lay-back style of living and relaxed atmosphere. The Islands year-round balmy tropical climate entices anyone who is seeking a warm getaway from the winter chills. With Cocos’ pristine beaches, warm clear waters of the Indian Ocean and spectacular marine life, your holiday starts the moment you step off the plane. Cocos Castaway owners, Annelies and Graham Flynn, will meet you at the airport and assist with the transfer to your accommodation.
