Christmas comes early

Christmas Island, an Australian national park in the Indian Ocean, is a new and, hopes Diverse Travel, intriguing choice for its clients.

Referred to as the “Galapagos of the Indian Ocean”, it is the site of the famous annual red crab migration as well as home to rare birds and turtle-nesting beaches.

Diving on pristine reefs and drop-offs is possible year round, says Diverse, with reef sharks all year too and whale sharks from November to May.

The tour operator also reckons Christmas Island is a good destination to combine with a trip to an Indonesian dive-location such as North Sulawesi, Bali or Raja Ampat.

It charges from £1999pp for a package consisting of flights from London via Jakarta (30kg baggage allowance), seven nights’ accommodation (two sharing), 10 guided boat-dives with Extra Divers, one night’s B&B in Jakarta and all transfers.
