5 Day itinerary

Day 1
- Start your five-day Cocos Highlights itinerary with exploring West Island and get to know the best beaches from tip to tip. Visit the Big Barge Art Centre, have coffee and lunch at Maxi's By the Sea.

Day 2 - Take a trip on the ferry to Home Island. Join a tour taking in the unique Cocos Malay culture, stay for dinner and enjoy the delicious local cuisine, returning to West Island on the late ferry.

Day 3 - Boarding the ferry once again, it's off to Direction Island with a picnic lunch and refreshments. Swim, snorkel 'the Rip', lie in a palm tree-suspended hammock, explore the many tracks through the island interior, or just relax with a book.

Day 4 - Join one of the many day tours. Explore the southern end of the lagoon with a motorised canoe tour or kayak hire or book a scuba dive and meet 'Kat' the dugong. Join the locals for a drink and some colourful stories at the Cocos Club after enjoying fish and chips from the Flying Fish Cafe for dinner. 

Day 5 - Take a dip at either Trannies Beach or the Yacht Club (watching kite surfers from July to October).
