If you like beaches, one of the best places to visit in Cocos Keeling Islands is Direction Island. Easily accessible by ferry, Direction Island is home to Cossies Beach which has been voted as number one in the 101 Best Australian Beaches! With 27 islands to choose from, it is no wonder that some of the top Cocos Island tourist attractions include various water sports such as kite surfing, wind surfing and of course traditional surfing. Even at the busiest times of the year the islands never become crowded which allow you plenty of room to learn the ropes, hone your skills and perfect your technique. You can also hire kayaks and stand up paddle boards, or get below the water to experience the phenomenal snorkelling on both coral reefs and wrecks which are brimming full of brightly coloured tropical fish. If you’d rather catch and eat your fish instead, the Cocos Keeling Islands also offer excellent fishing for bonefish, trevally, sailfish and tuna off the beach, jetty and boat.

When you are ready to take a break from the sandy shores and lapping water, make sure you take the ferry over to Home Island, where the heart of the Cocos Malay community live. Rich in culture and history, this is a wonderful place to learn how to do traditional weaving, try your hand at cooking Malay food and even join a cultural ceremony held in one of the homes across the island.
