A unique destination has been added to the worldwide offerings from UK tour operator Diverse Travel – Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean.

This is a truly exciting destination, as Christmas Island is known as ‘the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean’ and is one of nature’s most-impressive achievements. The island is full of natural wonders, from the annual red crab migration to rare birds and deserted beaches where turtles nest. Yet it also has a curious amalgam of cultures, history and industry, emerging as a place where all these elements create a truly unusual travel experience – for instance, 63% is tropical rainforest, making it an Australian National Park.

At just 19km in length, clients can dive pristine reefs and drop-offs or take some time topside and marvel at the bird life. Diving is possible all year round, with reef sharks a regular sighting and whalesharks during November to May.

“With easy flights from Heathrow to Jakarta and weekly charter flights from Jakarta, this is so doable,” says Jim Yanny, Owner of Diverse Travel. “We have a number of flight options for this exceptional destination and it’s ideal to combine with another such as North Sulawesi, Bali or Raja Ampat. Overall, it’s good value for money and the chance to dive somewhere completely different.”

Prices are from £1,999 per person for an eight-night package based on twin share, including return flights from London Heathrow to Jakarta and return direct flights to Christmas Island, 30kg baggage allowance, airline departure taxes, seven nights’ accommodation in twin/double room, five days’ boat diving with up to two guided day-dives a day with Extra Divers, one night B&B in a twin/double room at an airport hotel in Jakarta and all transfers.
