We returned for another 2 1/2 weeks of bliss at our usual Castaway Retreat- our 12th time there I think!
Everything great again!- and we have booked again for another 18 days next year.
Thanks again Annelies and Graham!!

Thank you Neil for your kind review, Castaway would indeed not be the same, without seeing you again. Looking forward to next year.
We have stayed at the Cocos Castaway twice now and it never disappoints. Fantastic accommodation and great location on the island. Graham an Annelies are great hosts. I could recommend Cocos Castaway more.

Thank you for your top notch review. Hopefully we will get the opportunity to look after you again.
Just come back from my fifth stay at Cocos Castaway, which says it all really. I'll never tire of waking up to the beautiful view of the Indian Ocean from the main bedroom of the ocean front bungalows, or of watching the sunsets from the...More

The beach at Direction Islands is the best for beautiful shades of blue water and swimming. A ferry services Direction twice a week. Indeed no accommodation is available there, but camping is an option. The famous Rip there (for strong swimmers only) is the best snorkelling experience.
In front of Cocos Castaway is not attractive for swimming, but there are plenty of popular swimming beaches on West Island. In front of Castaway is nice for just wading through the water at low tide, especially when it is not too windy.
