Are you one of those who enjoy exploring the world? If the answer is yes, you should do everything possible to put your feet in the islands that I show you below, since in my humble opinion they are the most beautiful that you can find throughout the planet.

As you can imagine, in most of them you can enjoy beaches that look like the paradise, although luckily it is not the only thing you can do.

Koh Samui (Thailand)

Koh-Samui
Thailand It is not only a very tourist country thanks to Bangkok, it is also for the southern area, which is where its main islands are located. The most beautiful of all is Koh Samui, which is still not as exploited as Phuket. It costs more money to get there by plane and that explains why it does not receive as much tourism. On beaches like Chaweng you will have a great time during the day, while your nightlife is guaranteed to be an island where you can breathe a festive atmosphere that does not seem to end.


Maldives

Maldives
Who has not dreamed of going to the Maldives? It is the lowest country in the world and is threatened by climate change, so you have to hurry to visit it before it is engulfed by the sea (in thousands of years). It is in the Indian Ocean, 450 kilometers south of India. It is a country formed by 26 atolls and some 1,200 islands, although only 203 are inhabited. In its capital, which is Malé, just over 100,000 people live.

Bora Bora (French Polynesia)

Bora Bora
It belongs to the Leeward Islands, which in turn belong to the Society Islands, which are in French Polynesia. There they know her as Pora Pora, which means "first born" in Tahitian. For the Spanish it is not easy to spend a vacation there, since it is on the other side of the world and that makes the price of plane tickets more expensive. In addition, it is very focused on luxury tourism, so the resorts are quite expensive and spending a day there is not something affordable either. Despite everything, it is worth resting in a cabin located on the sea while you watch sharks and rays stroll around wanting to greet you.

Capri (Italy)

Capri
About 20 kilometers from the Amalfi Coast There is Capri, an island that convinces you with its gastronomy and the beauty of its houses, which are painted in very cheerful colors. Also has natural attractions such as the Blue Grotto, a curious opening that allows the entry of small boats as also happens in other parts of the island. In this case, they say that the Roman emperors who lived there took advantage of this hole to enjoy relaxing private baths.


Whitsundays (Australia)

Whitsundays
The Whitsundays are 74 dream islands that are largely unpopulated. They are in the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea, which is fantastic news at the outset. However, what surprises tourists the most is the spectacle of colors reflected in its waters, which seem tricked with Photoshop. Further, the sand is overly white and shiny, and it has the particularity that it does not burn no matter how exposed it is to the sun thanks to its mineral composition.

Bali (Indonesia)

Bali
It is one of the most complete islands on this list. Not only are there incredible beaches and hotels where you would stay to live, but there is also room for curiosity thanks to their ancient temples, authentic jewels that will surprise you both for their architecture and for their location, since sometimes they are in places as little expected as the Tanah Lot, which is a few meters from the sea.

Fiji

Fiji
Between Polynesia and Melanesia is Fiji, a very small country located in the Pacific Ocean and belonging to Oceania. There live less than a million inhabitants who are used to luxury tourism sold by the main hotels on the island. The tourist travels there in search of peace, wanting to merge with his lush vegetation and its beaches, which stand out for their crystal clear waters, corals and the large number of colorful fish (and sharks) that can be seen with good diving goggles.


Palawan (Philippines)

Palawan
The Philippines is growing as a tourist country thanks to Palawan, which is an island that has nothing to envy to those that make up this list. Beaches like Nagtabon justify the trip, the same can be said of the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, where a long underground river merges with a spectacular karst landscape limestone. The river is navigable and there are excursions to live that unforgettable experience.

Seychelles

Seychelles
It is another of the names that come to mind when we begin to think of heavenly destinations.It is in Africa, northeast of Madagascar, made up of a total of 115 islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean. There you can see species of plants and animals that you have never seen in your life. That and giant stones that you will surely have seen in the typical photographs that travel agencies use to convince you that it is the best possible destination.

Santorini (Greece)

Santorini
Also, from Capri, in this list I have decided to include another European island that is very famous. This is Santorini, a small circular archipelago formed by volcanic islands that is a must see. More than for its beaches, which are not bad at all, it stands out for the beauty of the houses that are planted facing the sea with a combination of white and blue on the facades and on the roof that is difficult to ignore. In addition, from its volcanic cliffs you can see some postcard views that leave you with your mouth open
