There’s so much to do on Christmas Island, so be sure to make time to go scuba diving, deep sea fishing, play a round of golf, do some serious photography and birdwatching plus enjoy the fresh and tantalising cuisine representing the different cultural offerings. Christmas Island’s narrow fringing reef supports bountiful marine life, including 88 coral species and more than 600 species of fish – it’s an underwater wonderland for divers.
Lush fairways of the 9-hole Christmas Island Golf Course are watched over by towering cliffs where frigatebirds circle. And, with its diverse cultural mix, there always seems to be a celebration of some description where visitors are always welcome to join in the festivities.
- Dive into a warm, welcoming ocean and enjoy the thrill as magnificent creatures glide gracefully by, like the whale shark which migrates through from November to April
- Plan to travel around November/December to see the breathtaking vision of the annual red crab migration as the crabs march en-masse from their rainforest burrows to the ocean to breed
- Enjoy an organised photo tour or safari – it’s hard to imagine a more visually tantalising place to photograph than Christmas Island
