How to get there [edit]

Fly to Christmas Island Airport (XCH). Regular flights are available only from the Australian Perth town. There are also occasional charters from Singapore, Jakarta and other major hubs of Southeast Asia. However, it's hard to find such a flights.

The flight from Perth next follows to the Cocos islands (Keeling), which are a perfect beach destination and even more interesting than Christmas Island.
