Explore The Most Beautiful Small Islands In The World

Explore The Most Beautiful Small Islands In The World

The name “island” conjures up thoughts of crystal clear water, palm trees, gentle winds, and even gentler sands. In many cases, reality matches the fantasy. In some cases, it even outperforms it. There are volcanic islands with black beaches, lesser-known Caribbean treasures with pink sand and fairy-tale animals, and wildlife-only landmasses where humans rarely tread. These are some of the most beautiful little islands in the world, ranging from islets off the coast to far-flung jewels in far-flung areas throughout the globe.

Lord Howe Island, Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ

Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site Lord Howe Island is only 6.8 miles (11 kilometers) long and 1.7 miles (2.8 kilometers) wide, but every inch is breathtakingly beautiful. The island, which is part of New South Wales, is a lonely utopia of sugary beaches and unbelievably pure, turquoise-tinted waters teeming with about 500 species of fish off Aᴜsᴛʀᴀʟɪᴀ’s east coast.

Baltrum, Gᴇʀᴍᴀɴʏ

Baltrum is the smallest of the East Frisian islands, which lie off the northwest coast of Gᴇʀᴍᴀɴʏ. It’s only three miles (5 kilometers) long and 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) wide, with a sweep of pale golden sand running the length of it, backed by soft dunes and marshes. It feels like a different, timeless planet – one without automobiles and so few dwellings that street names are unnecessary.

Whidbey Island, Washington, USA

Whidbey Island is a salt-sprayed dream of a distant island in Washington state’s Puget Sound region, not far from Seattle. Its shoreline is a charming jumble of oyster beds clinging to rocks, rustic beaches strewn with driftwood, and alder and fir-tree forests. Deception Pass State Park, with its vast, burnished gold beach and fir trees as tall as 20-story buildings framing near-perfect sunsets across the bay, is the park’s crowning glory.

Cape Breton Island, Cᴀɴᴀᴅᴀ

The Cabot Trail, which skirts the margins of this island off the coast of Nova Scotia, is frequently cited as one of the most magnificent coastal drives in the world. It meanders past charming fishing communities, slashes through lush valleys, and rises past cliffs overlooking coves and caramel beaches, and every step is stunning.

Monhegan Island, Maine, USA

Monhegan Island, located 10 miles off the coast of Maine, is an exquisite mix of ocean cliffs, woods, flower-strewn meadows, and fishing boats bobbing ᴄʟᴏsᴇ to the shore. The island, which is only 1.7 miles (2.7 kilometers) long and 0.7 miles (1.1 kilometers) wide, is home to a lobster fishing village and a disproportionate number of artists despite its small size.

Navarino Island, Cʜɪʟᴇ

The Navarino Teeth, also known as the Dientes de Navarino mountain range, gives Navarino Island in Cʜɪʟᴇ’s remote Patagonia region a jagged, dramatic beauty. Forests and mud flats cover their dips, slopes, and valleys, which are interspersed with lagoons. Puerto Williams, South America’s most southerly village, and archaeological remains inhaBɪᴛᴇd by Yaghan or Yamaná people more than 10,000 years ago are also found on the island.
