Welcome to Christmas Island, A Natural Wonder.

Christmas Island is one of natures most impressive feats, an island full of natural wonders: from the unique annual red crab migration to rare and unusual birds and glorious deserted beaches where the only footprints in the sand are those made by nesting turtles.

With so many endemic species, the island is often referred to as the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean. Yet it also displays a curious amalgam of cultures, history and industry, emerging as a place where all these elements create a truly unusual travel experience

The annual red crab mass migration to the sea to spawn has been described by ecologists as 'one of the wonders of the natural world' and is Christmas Island's claim to fame amongst naturalists. Nowhere else on earth do crabs occur in these numbers and the spectacle is an experience not to be forgotten.
