A very nice beach for a swim, the reefs hold back the waves leaving a crystal clear area to swim in. Truly one of best beaches I've swum in around the world.

Beautiful miniature beach tiny little finger sized pocket of coral sand. One of the rare beaches on Christmas Island who's regular coastline boasts twenty metre high cliffs of jagged weather worn limestone. These little pocket sized places make you feel the earth is OK

A nice beach with a short walk to a lovely voew point to observe Frigates and Bobbies (sea birds). The sea is rough so not recommended for swimming but very picturesque and a nice beach.

For me, Lily Beach is the best beach on Christmas Island. It’s easily accessible, parking is right next to the beach (although limited), the beach is sheltered on both sides and the surf isn’t too rough. The beach is full of pebbles, not really sand...More

Not good for swimming especially if there is an onshore swell. Nice picnic place both on the beach, under the trees or at the BBQ site. A super boardwalk through the a bird nesting and blowhole area.
