One isn’t enough. At least when it comes to islands. You always want to see more, explore more, and do more. So, yes, one just isn’t enough. You need an entire archipelago. Here are six groups of islands that should keep you occupied for quite a while.
Clark’s Cay: Go to the Bay Islands for peace, a private island getaway, a lazy river, a tucked-away spa, custom-built dive boats, and secret dive sites off the coast of Honduras.
Puerto Baquerizo Moreno: See a national park, a marine reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a crater lake, boobies and frigatebirds, Galápagos tortoises, and the capital of the Galápagos Islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
Mataura: Head to the South Pacific for an isolated island, swimming, biking, shaded trails, incredible views, Kuhl’s lorikeets and Rapa fruit doves, and the ruins of a rebel-built fort in French Polynesia’s southernmost islands.
Kili Island: Discover low-lying islands, cinderblock houses, outdoor cook huts, rough seas, palm trees, white-sand beaches, and the bluest water you’ve ever seen in the quiet Marshall Islands.
Amami Guntō National Park: Turn to a national park, unique animals and plants, hiking, kayaking, swimming, and plenty of space in which to spread out in a remote part of Japan.
Gough Island: Find a remote territory, volcanic islands, an Important Bird Area, a Ramsar site, critically endangered Gough buntings, subantarctic fur seals, and very few people in the South Atlantic Ocean.
