Christmas Island offers the best bonefishing in the world on easily waded, clean, hard, white sand flats. Best of all, bonefishing is available year-round on Christmas Island due to the remarkably stable weather. Three different kinds of trevally - giant, to 100 pounds; blue, to 15 pounds; and striped, to 20 pounds - can also be caught while bonefishing on the flats and along the lagoon edges and in the surf. Christmas Island is also the ideal place to expand your flyfishing horizons to offshore bluewater. Fishing offshore in motor boats provides good opportunities to catch tuna and wahoo.
During your stay, you have a choice of accomodations at the Captain Cook Hotel or beachside bungalows. The Captain Cook Hotel is convenient to the island's jetport, is operated by an English-speaking staff, and is within sight and sound of the island's barrier reef. The hotel's 24 modern rooms offer air conditioning, are all located on the ground level, and open onto a courtyard facing the beach. Each room has a small refrigerator and private bathroom with a shower. There are also twenty attractive, thatch-roofed beachside bungalows with all the modern conveniences situated on the beach not far from the hotel.
Dining is another surprise. The fresh seafoods are memorable. Meats and vegetables are flown in from Hawaii. Groups are treated to a weekly outdoor luau, featuring fresh lobsters and complete with traditional native singing and dancing. The comfortable Frigate Bar in the hotel or the open-air Maneaba on the beach is the evening gathering place to trade stories about the huge bonefish or trevally that got away.
