Top 10 Islands in the World

Posted by

To island-hop some of the most beautiful havens in the world, book a trip to Asia, which lays claim to six of this year’s top 10 destinations. But if you only have a week, you’ll hardly suffer. Each of the islands on this list is worth a visit on its own.

Every year readers are asked to weigh in on travel experiences around the global to share their opinions on the top cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Readers rated islands according to their activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness, and overall value.

A favourite one of the readers is Tasmania, beloved for its wild beauty as well as its beautiful scene, which has food and wine fans singing its virtues between courses. Explore the northern coast of the island, to which fairy penguins return at night to roost, and the secluded Boat Harbour beach, where you may not see another living being.

Readers heralded for its isolation, as well as its beaches, diving, and mountainous beauty. It is Indonesia’s Lombok, an island just east of Bali that one reader called it Romance Island. In fact, Indonesia seems to have the joys of island life down to a science, laying claim to the top three spots people most enjoy visiting.
