For Your Island Escape — the 10 Best in the World

Island 2

There is something about being on an island.

Smaller landmasses completely surrounded by water — for me — create the image of escaping to some remote paradise where the sky is blue and the ocean turquoise.

Abundant natural settings where you can be as alone as you care to.

A place where you can discover, explore and engage in local activity.

Or simply sit on the beach and do nothing.

I love islands so much that I finally moved to one.  And while “my island” did not make it to the 10 Best Islands in the World, Conde Nast Traveler’s 2013 Readers’ Choice Awards can help you locate your favorite islet by the sea:
