Fly Fishing the World's Largest Atoll
paper texture
Located in the South Pacific, equidistant between Hawaii and New Zealand, sits Kiritimati Island – the largest atoll in the world known to anglers as “Christmas Island.” Not to be confused with the Territory of Australia “Christmas Island,” Kiritimati is a remote and largely-undeveloped island that is part of a long island chain that makes up the country of Kiribati. It takes a bit of time to get here, but once you arrive, you find a saltwater wilderness area that is absolutely massive: an area home to impressive numbers of bonefish, milkfish, triggerfish, giant trevally, golden trevally, and several other species. The interior and exterior flats of Christmas Island are a mix of hard white sand, coral, and turtle grass, creating the ideal setting for wade fishing enthusiasts. For those looking for a diversity of species and solid numbers of bonefish, Christmas Island is hands-down one of the top destinations in the entire world of saltwater fishing.

Lodging Details
Yellow Dog is very excited and proud to be working with The Villages, the best operation that the island has to offer. Built directly on the beach just outside the small town of London, The Villages has several small cabins outfitted to accommodate two anglers per room. Each cabin is equipped with air-conditioning, hot showers, comfy beds, and an atmosphere that allows anglers to think of nothing but the week’s fishing ahead. The Villages has an indoor dining area with air-conditioning and a covered palapa-style lounge area where cocktails and appetizers are served after long days on the flats. With a client-to-guide ratio of one-to-one (the only operation on Christmas Island that offers this!), anglers can look forward to fishing one-on-one with their own guide each day. Each guide will come directly to a client’s cabin every morning and take their rods and gear to the boat, which is just a short, 50-foot walk from the lodge. With a friendly staff, good food, and a “fishing-focused” atmosphere, The Villages is the perfect place to call home for a week on Christmas Island.

Food and Beverages
All meals are prepared within the Villages kitchen featuring a variety of different fish dishes, rice, chicken, pork, pasta, and salads with a homemade dessert to top everything off. Each morning anglers will eat a breakfast consisting of homemade toast, eggs, and bacon then make a short walk to the beach where their boat and guide will be waiting for them. During breakfast, a table consisting of lunch items will be provided for anglers to make their own sandwiches and fill their lunch box with extra snacks, fruit, and drinks. Each angler will have four (4) bottles of water which are included in the trip package, provided for them during their day of fishing. If desired, anglers can bring more at an additional cost. All cabins are equipped with a small fridge filled with sodas and beer at an additional cost. After each day of fishing, anglers are served appetizers in the open lounge area which will consist of fresh tuna and wahoo sashimi, chips and dip, and cheese and crackers. The Villages only provide beer so any additional adult beverages can be purchased in Honolulu at the Duty-Free shop. A maximum of only three (3) bottles per person are allowed through customs.

Typical Length of Stay
Since flights to Christmas Island’s Cassidy International Airport (CXI) through Honolulu’s International Airport (HNL) are only offered once a week on Fiji Air, the standard package is seven (7) nights / six (6) fishing days.

Non-Angling Activities & Options
While most visitors to the island are focused mostly on the diverse fishing opportunities, The Villages does offer guests diving opportunities. Christmas Island is virtually untapped by diving exploration and has some of the most pristine coral reefs in the South Pacific. With experienced guides trained in diving, guests can swim among the fish and experience the extraordinary beauty of Christmas Island’s underwater world. Guests wishing to dive must be DAN (Divers Alert Network) Members, certified divers, and must purchase Global Rescue to participate in the diving opportunities offered. Guests can also enjoy diverse birdwatching and take advantage of many snorkeling opportunities. Bringing your own snorkel gear will allow you to enjoy the vast coral areas loaded with unique fish species and dazzling collections of colorful coral. Snorkeling and birding may all be done during your guided fishing day or before or after a day of guided fishing.

Internet / Communications
The Villages does not provide any internet access during your week on the island, and cell phones will not work at any time during your stay.
