Best tropical islands to visit in the world

Best tropical islands to visit in the world



We all want to go on vacations to exotic destinations and stay at our luxury dream hotels. When we think of a summer break, the first thing that comes to our minds is white sand beaches, crystal clear blue turquoise water, palm trees, sunbathing, enjoying water sports like snorkeling, scuba diving and much more. Tropical island is the ultimate peaceful destination to escape the summer heat, nothing feels better than that. Words can't describe the beauty of that place. It's like we enter a different paradise and forget what's the real world like! But unfortunately, luxury hotels at these tropical islands come with a hefty price. So, if you want to book your trip to such paradise islands and are willing to pay some extra money, here's a list of some tropical islands all around the world that are my favorites.

  7. Some great ones on this list! Which Fijian island is your favourite? I also noticed none the Vanuatu islands or Solomon Islands made your list. Between them they have gorgeous views to rival Fiji! If it’s helpful for your readers, I put together a blog post on the best cruise ships for visiting the tropical islands of the South Pacific: https://stillaslife.com/which-are-the-best-cruise-ships-for-exploring-the-south-pacific-islands

    Here are some of the iconic blue holes on Vanuatu’s Espírito Santo Island: https://stillaslife.com/northern-seaside-blue-hole-shore-excursion-review-luganville-espiritu-santo-vanuatu/

    1. Hey, thank you for commenting. I was thinking of including the Soloman, Vanuatu's and some other islands in Italy but the list was just getting too long. I will definitely check your posts out.
      Have a great day!

    2. I thought the same thing. The Solomon Islands and Vanuatu both have better diving, stronger cultures, warmer water, everything. I have gone back to the Solomons 4 times, have a home base in Vanuatu but have no desire to return to Fiji.

  8. Wow! Wonderful article! All the islands chosen are amazing! We are planning to visit Maldives in December this year! Do you have any tips for us?

    1. Maldives during December receives rainfall, it's partly wet and partly dry. The temperature drops from 20-29 Celcius. But, it is also the peak tourist season. I recommend not to drink alcohol anywhere other than your resort. Maldives being an Islamic nation, expects you to dress conservatively when outdoors. But, if you wish to stay in your private resort, there is no need to follow that. Hope you have a great trip! Wishing you the best.

  9. I have to admit that I hate beach holidays and try to stay away from the sun as much as physically possible so none of these destinations are on my travel bucket list, but I could stare at the photos all day. The colour of the water and the beaches look absolutely beautiful. I wish I could enjoy them more as destinations x

  21. I love that you have included a daily budget to give clues to the price range of each place.
    I honestly think beautiful places are worth a little expense, and islands have that fresh air and blue water that I close my eyes and dream of.

  22. I've lived on a few of these and others. Tropical islands are amazing, especially if you immerse yourself in location culture. It's been incredible exploring the different islands and cultures. I'd still be in Vanuatu if the world hadn't changed.

  24. Love the island you selected!
    A couple that I think would diserve to be on the list:
    Moorea in French Polynesia - a bit less touristy than its big sister Bora Bora (also near where we used to live!)
    Rodrigue Island near Mauritius
