I often find myself jonesing for an islands vacation. In fact, whenever I come across some great Highlights.
Save Place
Av S/N - Pont, Isla de Pascua, Región de Valparaíso, Chile
Perhaps the most luxurious of the hotels near town on Easter Island, the Hanga Roa has sunset-facing patios on every room and a sunset cocktail is included every evening. And bike rentals are free!
Save Place
When in Bora Bora, Tahitian pearls are a girl’s best friend. Often known as "black pearls," they actually come in all sorts of colors, including black, blue, green, and pink. Even though the pearls aren’t produced in this...
Save Place
Airport Main Rd, Malé 22000, Maldives
Sunset behind Medhufushi Resort, Maldives.
Save Place
Borobudur, Magelang, Central Java, Indonesia
A sunrise amidst the ancient monument of Borobudur is a loved experience. However, what I found even more enchanting and surreal was enjoying a sunset in this quiet place. At the wee end of our evening, we found ourselves alone with the Stupas,...
Save Place
Gizo, Solomon Islands
The Solomon Islands are pleasantly void of mass tourism. For those that make it here no doubt wonder why. Even better is discovering Oravae Cottage a tiny island with a quaint cottage and "penthouse" double bedroom annex. You're fed by the local...
Save Place
La Savane, St Martin
Kali's a character and his rum infusions left to bake in the punishing West Indian sun are not to be missed! Try from a selection including guavaberry (maybe not what you're thinking), passion fruit, papaya, banana and more. Don't forget to order...
Save Place
Henrys, Bridgetown, Barbados
There's simply no better place to get Caribbean spiny lobster on Barbados than Lobster Alive. Fact. Why? Because practically every lobster sold in every restaurant on the island comes through this one unassuming location. The problem is that due...
Save Place
SURFER'S BAY - MOONRAKER, GREEN GARDEN, LANDSDOWN, SILVER SANDS, Barbados
Luckily Surfer’s Bay Beach Bar isn’t exclusive to those with a penchant for getting tubed, pulling aerials or catching the perfect wave. All you need is a laid-back vibe and you’ll fit in perfectly at this idyllic beach bar on the southernmost tip...
Save Place
Pointe du Bout, Les Trois-Îlets 97229, Martinique
This iconic bar sits on stilts above the sea at the Hotel Bakoua in the sultry resort area of Trois-Ilets, just across the Bay of Fort-de-France from the island’s capital city. People don’t come here for the drinks (stronger and better...
Save Place
British Virgin Islands
This family-run restaurant serves up some of the best conch fritters in the Caribbean. The relaxed vibe and plastic chairs make for an unusual place for a romantic dinner, but just add a sunset and a perfectly prepared lobster, and Cow Wreck...
Save Place
British Virgin Islands
Relaxing on Jost Van Dyke and having a "pain killer". Great way to spend a day and my most favorite place on earth!
Save Place
Playa Las Galeras, Las Galeras Las Galeras Samana, Las Galeras 32000, Dominican Republic
Kiosco Las Galeras is a seafood shack at the end of the only road into town, where it terminates at the main, white sand beach of Las Galeras. The seafood is all fresh caught and, in some cases, still kicking. Everything is served with platanos...
Save Place
Port Antonio, Jamaica
For those who aspire to travel as trendsetters in Jamaica, it helps to know that Port Antonio, way out on the eastern end of the island, is the destination to head for. And the address to shelter at is the Trident Hotel, whose 13 waterfront villas...
Save Place
Pacific Harbour, Fiji
Just outside the town of Suva, there is a dive company, Aqua-Trek, that specializes in shark encounters: on any given day, an individual can dive over 20 meters along a striking reef and experience firsthand, up close and personal, no cage, up to...
