Discover the most popular resort on Christmas Island, “The Villages”, built on a lagoon overlooking the bonefish flats! This is our most re-visited / re-booked destination on Christmas Island. Now offering Snorkel and Scuba Diving !
Nestled among the palms are three bungalows suited for twelve guests. Between the bungalows is a “maneaba”, a comfortable lounge and dining area with a South Seas atmosphere. Experienced chefs will prepare and serve meals with a mixture of local and American flavors. Air Conditioning, Hot Water, and Good Food are just a few of the important attributes about The Villages.
Within ten minutes of the resort, you can be on the flats! With a guide for two anglers, you will have all the expertise you need. Our guides will stay out as long as you want to keep fishing! It’s all here, long shallow crystal clear flats with bonefish prowling for food.
A solitary bone casts a ghost-like image against pure white coral sand to provide a challenging prey to the well-placed fly. A heart-stopping take and within seconds a hundred yards of flyline screams off your reel to start a speed-burning flight!
A short skiff ride through turquoise-blue waters and you are outside of the lagoon exploring the edges of the reef! Many ideal spots provides fly or light conventional tackle action for tuna, trevally, wahoo, rainbow runner, bonito and cudas.
Fiji Air, offers weekly 3-hour flights from Honolulu to Christmas Island and return every Tuesday. What other airline offers soft leather seats, a full meal service, and an in-flight movie on such a short flight? All flights are assisted by “The Villages” staff.
Once at “The Villages”, anglers unpack, settle in, and then meet the entire staff and guides at the “maneaba” to discuss tackle, the following days fishing and to answer questions. The manager and staff are well-trained, service-minded and someone is always available to take care of each guests needs.
“The Villages” is the only fishing facility where you can step out of your bungalow and stalk bonefish. Our skiffs are secured at our beach and are easily launched for fishing. Little time is wasted during your day. Our skiffs offer comfort, our boatmen follow the fishermen and your tackle and food coolers are within walking distance to the skiff.

The undersea environment is virtually untouched and descends into a magic kingdom of colorful coral gardens. The entire perimeter is one large dive site. The reef starts in the shallows and steps down in flats to a final drop off into the deep blue ocean. Huge coral mounds, long flats, steep walls and underwater caves are covered with 80 species of hard and soft corals.
