Cocos Islands Travel Insurance
Two coral atolls make up this isolated island of Cocos, also known as the Keeling Islands. The Cocos Islands can be found midway between Sri Lanka and Australia in the Indian Ocean. A territory of Australia, it is located about 900 km southwest from the Christmas Islands (another Australian territory). The southern atoll is made up of 26 islets while the northern atoll is only composed of North Keeling Island. The Island’s unique geography has led to an abundance of seabirds and land crabs, apart from preserving rare ecosystems like coral atolls. The area and surrounding waters of North Keeling Island have thus been conserved as Pulu Keeling National Park since 1995.
Arrive at Cocos Islands between July and October to enjoy kite- and wind-surfing in its pristine surroundings. It is the time of the year when southeastern trade winds create the best conditions for such adrenaline pumping activities. You can also indulge in snorkeling, diving, and swimming in its clear azure waters. Renowned for its marine life, seabirds, and coral atolls, Pulu Keeling National Park is a spectacular place to get in touch with nature. With 27 beautiful coral islands, this is a great place to do some island hopping. As you embark a local ferry, you can explore uninhabited islets, white sandy beaches, rare breeds of seabirds, interesting mix of Cocos Malay culture, and serene palm trails. A popular wedding destination, this Island is the only place in the world where atoll walking is possible because of a lagoon which becomes remarkably shallow during low tides. For visas, Embassies of Cocos Islands can be found at New Delhi, Chennai, and Mumbai.
