Naxos Island

If you’re ready to travel, Naxos is the ideal destination for you because it’s less touristy and less congested than the more popular Santorini or Mykonos. A Greek island’s gleaming white structures located on a slope above shimmering blue seas are enough to pique your interest. On this island, you’ll discover the finest beach in the Venetian palaces, and the fragments of a temple constructed for the Greek Lord Apollo. 

You may spend days exploring the island’s ancient ruins but bear in mind that the landscape is mountainous and uneven in spots, so excellent walking shoes are required. After exploring, take a bath in the water and dine at one of the island’s many fantastic restaurants, which provide seafood as well as other Greek delights.

Koh Samui

Best Islands to Visit
Koh Samui

Koh Samui is among our list’s lesser-known destinations, but this hidden treasure is an all-time favorite. Thailand’s second-largest island, Koh Samui, is noted for its palm-lined beaches, coconut orchards, and verdant woods. The island offers some of the finest luxury spas and resorts, but at a far lower price than those in many good places like Bora Bora.

Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island resembles a tiny piece of Australia, complete with its own distinct species, bushlands, and stunning beaches. There’s a lot to see and do on this island, so we suggest renting a vehicle when you arrive. However, keep an eye out when driving because local wildlife may cross your path. 

There are several wildlife parks where you can get a close look at the creatures, and because many of them are nocturnal, you may plan a midnight guided tour. After seeing the animals, enjoy some of the island’s excellent food, including honey that is sought after across Australia.

Galapagos Islands

Galapagos Islands

Charles Darwin made the Galapagos Islands famous over two centuries ago when he utilized the species there to uncover and explain evolution. These islands are also still as breathtaking to Darwin as they were to him. The Galapagos’ unusual fauna is one of its outstanding features. The island is home to massive tortoises that gently explore the beaches, scary yet fascinating iguanas, and amusing sea lions. They have mesmerizing walks up jagged cliffs and the world’s second-largest crater.

While this location is most renowned for explorers and wildlife enthusiasts, there are several tranquil spots on these Ecuadorian beaches. Those who wish to spend the entire day on the beach will never get over it.

Mauritius

Islands of the world
Mauritius

Mauritius has something for everyone and is ideal for both a romantic island break and an action-packed vacation. It’s a lengthy journey to the beach, so leave yourself more than enough time to appreciate the beautiful white sand seashores and perhaps other surroundings. In contrast to further tropical islands, there’s no distinct rainy season, and the temperature remains fairly consistent throughout the year, making this one island you’ll want to visit at any time of year. 

You can learn about the island’s flora and wildlife on a trek or by visiting one of the island’s vibrant national parks. But the main purpose of visiting Mauritius is to spend a lot of time as possible relaxing on the island’s picture-perfect beaches

Tahiti, one of the world’s most popular honeymoon locations, provides pure paradise and plenty of romance.

Final Words: Things to consider when planning an island trip?

As appealing as island holidays seem, there are a few things to consider before booking your trip. Here are as follows:

  • Aim to avoid visiting during a cyclone or rainy season, which varies depending on where you are going.
  • Second, as island holidays grow more popular, their prices rise. However, the pricing for many of the islands on our list varies relying on whether you live in a hotel or somewhere more local. If you’re seeking a less expensive vacation, check for accommodations outside of the larger resorts; you could discover something shockingly reasonable.
  • Third, while traveling overseas, you must consider the language barrier. If you travel to more rural places, you may encounter individuals who only understand the native language. While this may appear to be difficult, there are constant ways to interact that should lead you wherever you desire to go.

And besides the above-mentioned, you don’t need to worry at all. So, now that you’ve learned about these interesting and captivating islands, start packing your bags and prepare to be amazed by nature’s magnificence like you’ve never seen before.
