Christmas Island

This unusual tropical destination in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, some 1,300 miles south of Hawaii, is part of the Line Island Group, Republic of Kiribati, known previously as the Gilbert Islands. Christmas Island has the largest land area of any coral atoll in the world (140 square miles) and is only 119 miles north of the equator. The highest elevation is about 12 feet, and the airport is at an elevation of five feet. With its large colonies of sea birds, vast reefs, endless flats, lagoons and surrounding ocean, it offers excellent opportunities for observing bird and marine life as well as outstanding fishing.
