Rising majestically from the tropical depths of the vast Indian ocean, and surrounded by azure waters lies a stunning Natural Wonder: its name alone is intriguing and stirs interest. We invite you to uncover the remarkable surprises of this island full of natural wonders: from the unique annual red crab migration to rare and unusual birds and glorious deserted beaches. The island displays a curious amalgam of cultures, history and industry, emerging as a place where all these elements create a truly unusual travel experience.

Christmas Island is the tip of a huge undersea (extinct) volcano surrounded by crystal clear tropical waters and a vibrant reef that plunges into the abyss of the Java Trench. Christmas Island has a fringing reef, most sites are close to the coast and can be reached within 30 minutes. Whether you like to search for the secretive little critters or prefer to keep your eye on the blue for the bigger beasts, Christmas Island hosts a vast array of tropical fish species, nudibranchs, pelagics, turtles and sharks. With special guest stars, whalesharks and mantas, dropping by between November to April to get in on the plankton action. Diving here is always relaxing. We favour drift diving, so you can take your time and go where the current takes you, while our team waits for you at the end point. We get an early start so our two-dive days have you back to shore just after lunch, leaving plenty of time to explore the island.


The Cocos Padang has 4 self contained units. Each unit is adaptable to accommodate a 3, 2 or 1 bedroom configuration depending on the requirements of a booking. The Cocos Padang Lodge is centrally located in Settlement, with only a short stroll to shops, cafes and the Golden Bosun Tavern.
