  • 10 Amazing

  • Islands

  • You Probably Don’t Know

  • 10. Prince Edward Island, Canada

  • Sunbathing is rare most of the year on this island, but youll enjoy exploring the land

  • of Anne of Green Gables, who lives on Prince Edward Island in the stories by Lucy Maud

  • Montgomery. Tracing the path of this character is just one of the options here. This island

  • that many have forgotten has been ranked among the best in the year by such publications

  • as Travel + Leisure. While the weather here isn’t warm most of the year, you can always

  • put on a jacket and head to the beach for one of the island’s breathtaking sunsets.

  • Or, enjoy a picnic in the green grass with local produce and seafood.

  • Prince Edward Island is also filled with history. In 1864, it was the site where the Canadian

  • Confederation was formed by the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Quebec, and

  • Ontario.

  • 9. Shelter Island, New York

  • While the traffic doesn’t move as hordes of people escape to the Hamptons and Montauk

  • each summer, nearby Shelter Island is not as busy. Getting to this part of Long Island

  • does require a ferry from Greenport, but it’s all worth it when you hit land. Youll find

  • a selection of small inns and bed & breakfasts to stay at on Shelter Island. The restaurants,

  • like the accommodations, do not include any chains, but the long acclaimed Rams Inn hotel

  • and restaurant will satisfy any need you have for luxury.

  • On Shelter Island you can spend your days fishing Peconic Bay, browsing through art

  • galleries, or shopping boutiques. In the summer, hike through the Mashomack Preserve, attend

  • a workshop at Sylvester Manor Educational Farm, or go Kayaking. In the fall it’s worth

  • a trip to Shelter Island just to see the beautiful foliage.

  • 8. Siesta Key, Florida

  • TripAdvisor, AARP, Yahoo! Travel, and USA Today have all named the sands of Siesta Key

  • among the very best beaches in the U.S. This island is not near the more known Key West,

  • but is instead one of the western Florida Keys, just across from Sarasota on the shore

  • of the Gulf of Mexico.

  • This eight mile long island is especially known for its perfectly powdered white sand,

  • making it popular for runners, volleyball players, Segway riders, and those scouring

  • the shore for sea shells. Siesta Key is filled with places to stay, shop, and eat, but on

  • Sunday evenings, an hour before sunset, youll find most at the beach, watching the unique

  • Sunset Drum Circle. The music and dancing have become a tradition on the island which

  • frequently brings onlookers from around the region.

  • 7. South Bass Island, Ohio

  • Anyone who hasn’t been to Lake Erie Shores would probably be surprised to find that there

  • is an island in Ohio. In fact, there are five islands off the shores of Lake Erie in this

  • Midwestern state. Among them, South Bass Island is the one which will have you imagining you

  • are really in the Caribbean. The town of Put-in-Bay is home of the world’s largest swim-up bar,

  • SPLASH, as well as a bar filled with swings instead of stools, Mojito Bay. Take a train

  • around to see the sites, or rent a scooter and enjoy it at your own pace.

  • Youll also find a lot of history on South Bass Island. Perry’s Victory and International

  • Peace Memorial is the third largest National Monument in the nation. Take a tour to the

  • top and relive the Battle of Lake Erie that took place here during the War of 1812.

  • 6. Block Island, Rhode Island

  • Whether youre traveling from Newport, Rhode Island, or Montauk on New York’s Long Island,

  • you will be impressed when you arrive on Block Island. Between the clear water on the miles

  • of beachfront and the bluffs in the background, this is a place all its own.

  • Block Island, which is considered part of Rhode Island, is only seven miles long and

  • three miles wide. Along with the free public beaches within walking distance of almost

  • everywhere, this haven is filled with boutique shops, art galleries, and gourmet restaurants.

  • Youll also find Block Island to be an active vacation spot, offering scenic spots for hiking,

  • horseback riding, and biking. On the water youll have no problem making arrangements

  • for kayaking, sailing, fishing expeditions, or snorkeling.

  • 5. Nevis, Leeward Islands, West Indies

  • St. Kitts and Nevis fall under one tourism board and are often joined together in thought

  • as if they are one island, but they are vastly different. Nevis is just 36 square miles and

  • doesn’t have a cruise port or a major airport. You also won’t find anything close to a

  • Marriott or a shopping mall on this island.

  • Nevis has been recognized for its green thinking clean air and lush plant life, and where you

  • are likely to find more than a few monkeys hanging out. The island gets its renewable

  • energy from the dormant volcano at Mount Nevis. Its turquoise water and soft sand beaches

  • comes from both the Atlantic and the Caribbean as this island is on the peak of where both

  • bodies of water meet. This paradise is filled with small boutique hotels and was a favorite

  • of Princess Diana.

  • 4. Mackinac Island, Michigan

  • Mackinac Island was as much a star in the movie Somewhere in Time as Christopher Reeve

  • was. This island will definitely take you back in time from the moment you step off

  • the ferry and onto a horse and buggy, the most modern form of transportation on the

  • island.

  • It won’t take long for you to forget about cars and settle in to long walks, scenic hikes,

  • and rides on horses, but that doesn’t mean Mackinac island lacks amenities. Youll

  • find all the comforts of home at the two large resorts, Mission Point and Grand Hotel, but

  • if you prefer something quainter, there are plenty of bed and breakfast accommodations.

  • The island is only eight miles around so you can easily bike or walk anywhere. Just don’t

  • leave without Mackinac Island’s famous fudge, available at a dozen different shops downtown.

  • 3. Brijuni Islands, Istria, Croatia

  • It’s hard not to consider the Brijuni Islands, which are off the coast of Pula, Croatia,

  • as one island because of their proximity to each other. The 14 islands together make up

  • a stunning archipelago in the Adriatic Sea. You can snorkel an underground trail in the

  • clear waters or explore them with one of the small boats available. As beautiful as the

  • water is, be sure to also explore on land. Youll see remnants of the ancient European

  • culture that vacationed here.

  • You can easily reach the Brijuni islands by taking a ferry from the village of Fazana.

  • They are a short ride from mainland Istria, separated by the Fazana Channel. Once there,

  • you can explore all the islands after checking in at Brijuni National Park, the only national

  • park in Croatia. Hotels and Villas are available on Veliki Brijun if you’d like to extend

  • your stay overnight.

  • 2. Pantelleria, Italy

  • The beauty of Pantelleria, with its dramatic cliffs over the Mediterranean Sea is only

  • part of the attraction that has drawn celebrities from Giorgio Armani to Madonna, and visitors

  • from two continents. This island is not far from Tunisia and shows African and Ancient

  • Arabic roots that extend the culture beyond its kinship with Sicily.

  • Pantelleria is the remnants of a volcano and bears the lava stone, hidden coves, and natural

  • mineral hot springs from that eruption. The land has proven to be perfect to grow high

  • quality capers and vineyards filled with grapes, from which vintners such as Donnafugata make

  • sweet white wines. The blue Mediterranean waters also make for great diving, when youre

  • not feasting on the Italian delicacies the island is abundant in. Your best bet for accommodations

  • here is to look for a quiet inn a few blocks from the beach.

  • 1. Kangaroo Island, Australia

  • Words do not do justice to an island with over 300 miles of coastline with a selection

  • of beaches for every week of the year. Whether your desire is to watch sea lions frolic,

  • dolphins play, New Zealand seals climb, or pelicans fly, youll find a spot in the

  • sand just for that. And, if you’d like to get in the water yourself, youll find places

  • to swim, snorkel, dive, or even surf.

  • What makes Kangaroo Island such an amazing place is that the interior offers as much

  • as the exterior. Within the island youll find acres filled with wildlife such as kangaroos,

  • koalas, and wallabies, vineyards, restaurants, and shopping. Youll also find accommodations

  • that range from luxury on the Southern Ocean to a wildlife sanctuary inside the trees.

  • The one thing you won’t find a lot of is crowds. Kangaroo Island, which can be reached

  • from Southern Australia by plane or ferry, has plenty of open space.
