Kiritimati island (Christmas Island)

Ultimate guide 2017
Kiritimati (Christmas Island) - one of the most unusual atolls in the Pacific Ocean. There is not one, but dozens of inland lagoons, which are quite different from each other. Most of them are totally unsuitable for swimming, but there are few lagoons with beautiful beaches. Most tourists come to Kiritimati for fishing, so beaches are always empty. Beach and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
