TOP 20 Best Islands in the World
We share cool news with you! Every year, the renowned Travel + Leisure magazine compiles a list of the World’s best resorts including islands.
Turquoise water, fine-sand beaches, palm trees — when we think about islands, it’s something tiny and tropical that comes to mind. But the best islands in the world are far more diverse than that. Certainly, many of them boast nice climates. But still others have vineyards instead of palm trees and some very appealing resorts instead of rustic huts.
T+L readers rated islands according to their activities and sights, natural attractions and beaches, food, friendliness, and overall value. The results of 2020 reflect readers’ experiences before the pandemic, but we hope that this year’s honorees will inspire your trips to come — whenever they may be!
According to the results of the readers’ ratings, Greek islands took 3 spots in the category The Top 20 Islands in the World. Greece also dominates the list of The Top 20 Islands Europe and holds 7 spots in this nomination!
