Crabs are everywhere and will be easy to spot in the park. There are a few wooden boardwalks but some are broken and they do not connect. Also have a few stairs to beach areas and camping facilities. The main attraction are the crabs which...More

Went for a drive around the island while here on work. Take your time to avoid the crabs on the road. Red and Robber crabs. Head to the Blow holes and South point some old Chinese temples and a view out to sea.

63% of Christmas island is covered as natural park. If you're a nature lover, you will love the forest trail and rocky path drives. Do watch out for our red crabs buddies crossing the road when you're driving.
