Not all islands are created the same. The beauty of some is defined more by the sea that surrounds them, which can captivate connoisseurs with its crystalline clarity and thriving coral kingdoms. Other islands feature luxuriant jungles and velvety peaks. Seclusion, sprawling beaches, rolling waves and untouched pockets of wilderness are all credentials to be included among the best islands in the world.
