Boasting azure blue lagoons, shallow warm water and consistent trade winds from dawn to dusk, Cocos Islands are perfect for all levels... complete beginners, intermediates or advanced freestylers.
Wind and Weather
The wind blows consistently 15-25 knots all day every day from July through to October. The perfect quiver of kite for the average person would be a 7,9, and 12m. The temperature will not drop below 25 and not go above 27 degrees Celsius.
Cocos Islands are quite small, so you will only need a push bike or moped. You can hire mopeds at the airport.
Food and Drink
There are only a few places where you can eat out. On west islands, the Cocos Club has nice food and is very social. If you're after a good feast after a long day on the water, you can't go wrong with the Tropika Restaurant. There's also Dory’s cafe which is good for a morning coffee and breakfast. On Home Island, Rasa Di Sayang Restaurant offers a variety of delicious Seychelles, Malay and International cuisine, very famous for its irresistible fresh made desserts.
The Cocos Club is where everyone goes when the sun goes down. You can catch up with the locals and enjoy a cold drink after a solid day of kiting.
It is very rare to have no wind, but you can get a ferry over to Direction Island and relax on one the picture-perfect tropical islands. It offers exquisite white sandy beaches, shady shelters, wood-fired BBQs and walking trails.
Wifi is very slow and expensive. I recommend using the computers at the Visitor Centre.
You will need to book a house or a bungalow which you can book here http://www.cocoskeelingislands.com.au/accommodation
