5 Day itinerary
Day 1 - Start your five-day Cocos Highlights itinerary with a West Island Orientation Tour and get to know the best beaches from tip to tip. Visit the Big Barge Art Centre, have coffee and lunch at Dory's Cafe.
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, book a scuba dive and meet 'Kat' the dugong, or board the glass-bottom boat for a tour of the lagoon. Join the locals for a drink and some colourful stories at the Cocos Club after dinner at Tropika Restaurant.
Day 5 - Take a dip at either Trannies Beach or the Yacht Club (watching kite surfers from July to October).
