Top Five Islands of Your Dreams

If you’ve ever dreamed of visiting an island or living on one for an extended period of time, you’re in luck. We’ve done a lot of research from guest bloggers posts and have picked five islands that will fulfill all your dreams and fantasies. While some of them may be out of your price range at the moment, it’s still fun to dream about living on them. Sit back, relax, and get ready to learn more about five of the best islands in the world.

Top Five Dream Islands

Here’s a look at five specific islands that are considered paradises by anyone who lives on them or has visited them.

  1. Culebra, Puerto Rico

This island has the nickname La Isla Chiquita, and it is located near the main island of Puerto Rico. It’s really well known for having some of the bluest water in the world – not to mention miles and miles of sandy beaches. It’s truly a paradise.

  1. Lamu, Kenya

This island has the nickname La Isla Chiquita, and it is located near the main island of Puerto Rico. It’s really well known for having some of the bluest water in the world – not to mention miles and miles of sandy beaches. It’s truly a paradise.

  1. Monhegan Island, Maine

For something less exotic in the United States, you don’t have to look any further than Maine for an island that seems like it’s out of a really good dream. The island has about 75 full time residents, but it’s still a joy to just visit if you can make it. It takes an hour long trip by ferry to reach the island from Maine, but it’s definitely worth the journey.

  1. Surin Islands, Thailand

Located about 40 miles from Thailand’s Phang Nga province, this island is a paradise in many different ways. For one, the natural beauty of the unspoiled landscape is pretty amazing. Another reason this island is so great is because it’s so inexpensive to get there and live for a long time if you want.

  1. Yap, Micronesia

This may be an unknown island to most, but it’s like a dream made into reality. From the landscape to the culture to the people, this small island has a lot going for it. The really cool thing is that they’re still traditional in many ways. They’ve not been influenced that much by colonialism or tourism, which makes it one of the world’s last unspoiled islands in existence.

As you can see from the list above, the world is full of wonderful islands that would make anyone happy. If you have your own dream island – real or imagined – leave a comment and let us know about it.

      It’s a lot closer than some of the other places. It sounds like you’ve been to Monhegan Island? I hear it attracts many artists and nature lovers who take the ferry over to go hiking for the day or just enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of it’s cafes.

  2. So cool you mentioned Yap! I haven’t been there but my brother-in-law served a mission there for two years. Most people have never even heard of it. They speak their own language: Yapese. And they still have large stone rings for money. The larger the stone ring sitting in front of your home, the wealthier you are! At least, that’s how it was when he was there about 20 years ago!

      That’s what makes the island so unique. The people and it’s traditions. Your brother-in-law must of had a great time during his stay there.

  3. Culebra in Puerto Rico seems wonderful ! It is my favorite in your post !
