When it comes to seeing the world, we cannot deny that islands they have a special power of attraction. It is not necessary that summer arrives to want to visit them, but the most logical thing is to take advantage of the July and August holidays to travel to such paradisiacal places as the ones mentioned below.
If you plan to tour the planet in search of unique places, you shouldn't take long to write down the five names that I mention below.
Who has never dreamed of going to Bora Bora? It is a pity that for the Spanish this island of the French Polynesia It is in the antipodes, since it is one of the most beautiful in the world by far. It is an atoll type and combines beaches with lush vegetation that attracts the attention of tourists. In addition, you have the possibility to spend a night in one of those resorts that are made up of cabins located on the water.
Cocoa is an island in the Maldives archipelago that few people have the privilege to access. It is not one of those that is usually at the top of a wish list, but the truth is that it is an earthly paradise where you come across crabs and blacktip sharks that can be seen in shallow waters. 30 years ago it was a desert islandBut a Playboy photographer named Eric Klemm invested a lot of money to create a hotel that was attended by many celebrities. From eight bungalows it was moved to several hotel complexes, so today it is not an island as virgin as it used to be, but that does not mean that it has lost its charm. In fact, few places in the world are as recommended for diving as Cocoa.
From the unknown Cocoa we go to the Seychelles, which is a group of 115 islands located in the north of Madagascar. The only city in the archipelago is Victory and it's on the island of Mahé. As you probably have seen in countless movies, it is a place touched by a magic wand that allows you to enjoy spectacular beaches and animals as striking as the giant tortoise, which can live for more than 165 years.
In Mexico, specifically in the state of Quintana Roo, Isla Contoy is presented with the label of Nature Reserve and National Wildlife Refuge since 1961. It is north of Isla Mujeres and is home to a huge number of birds that live in peace. It is highly recommended to take your snorkeling gear to enjoy the Ixlaché reef, which is part of the second largest barrier reef in the world. This means that you can dive surrounded by multiple marine species, such as turtles that accompany you without the need to put on glasses.
If all the islands that I mentioned above shine for the paradisiacal that their beaches are, Easter Island is more well known for the mysterious ancestral culture of the Rapanui ethnic group, whose greatest claim is the Moai, which are huge statues that you will have seen many times in photographs. The Rapa Nui National Park, which is where they are, was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in 1995.
