The name of Australia’s best beach has been announced!


Have you ever heard of Cossies Beach? If not, it’s the high time to get it know and make a visit. Why? Because, Brad Farmer has named it to be the best beach in Australia!

The beach expert and Tourism Australia Aquatic and Coastal Ambassador has announced the Cocos Keeling Islands beach in the Indian Ocean as the best beach in the country. However, it must be an easy pick for Mr. Farmer because no one can ignore the charm of a beach that has warm turquoise water, complete safety for swimming, plentiful and diverse marine life, and friendly locals.

Rik Soderlund, the Marketing Manager of Cocos Keeling Islands Tourism Association, described the beach as one of the best-kept secrets of Australia. The visitors can expect to have a unique experience on the Cossies Beach because besides enjoying its spectacular beauty and activities, you can also instantly share them with everyone through a Wi-Fi hotspot.

In fact, Mr. Soderlund dared to label the Cossies Beach the best in the world! The beach has a limited visitor capacity. So, people who love to have a serene, peaceful beach experience should visit the place as it would never be crowded like other beaches. Plus, it offers a wide array of activities so there’s no chance for you to get bored.

Mr. Farmer published his latest guide to Australia’s Best Beaches 2017 after researching for five months. His colleague Professor Andy Short also helped him in this project. The two previously worked together in compiling their benchmark guide to Australia’s Best Beaches 2012.

Mr. Farmer also gave the beach a name, which the locals previously referred to as Direction Island. He and Mr. Short used a number of independent and scientific criteria to determine the uniqueness of the beach.

Mr. Farmer described the beach as nearly perfect. The country’s most remote beach can be reached via a four-and-a-half-hour flight from Perth.

The Cocos Keeling Islands features twenty-seven coral islands and two atolls. A population of 600 people live in two of the islands, Home Island and West Island. You can also take part in a raft of activities such as fishing, surfing, scuba diving, kite surfing, snorkelling, and birdwatching.

Mr. Soderlund said that the beach is so remote that many people don’t even know about it. However, he hopes that now it has been exposed, people will visit the place and encourage others to plunge into its beauties and activities.
