Are you starting to go crazy staring at the same four walls and limited view? You’ve spent too much time inside recently. You need some fresh air and different scenery. But you worry about exploring safely. An uninhabited island should do the trick.
Kekova Island: Find a sunken city, a stone staircase ascending from the water, wild goats, fragrant thyme, and hidden beaches on a tentative World Heritage Site off the coast of Turkey.
Habibas Islands: Discover a small archipelago, shell-covered islands, rare birds, large pods of dolphins, and a marine nature reserve undergoing an extensive rehabilitation project in the Galapagos of the Mediterranean.
Burgess Island: See volcanic islands, clear water, endangered species, striped marlin and giant yellowtail kingfish, deep canyons, a cliffside lighthouse, and breathtaking views while sailing off the coast of New Zealand’s North Island.
Port Ross: Head farther south in search of far-flung islands, a failed colony, an Important Bird Area, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, lots of shipwrecks, and deep-diving New Zealand fur seals 300 miles south of New Zealand’s South Island.
