Travel - Palawan Island In The Philippines Has Been Voted The Best Island In The World

5 posts in this topic

At this point in a stress-filled, exhausting year, we’d happily take a holiday to an off-brand version of Butlins. That sounds relaxing.

But for those who want only the best in life – the best food, the best partners, the best flying experience (oh, I see. You want a free blanket that’s actually big enough to cover your feet. Posho) – it makes sense to hold off on holiday plans until you know the best places to visit.

If you’re one of these people and you’ve also been pondering an island retreat, congrats – Travel + Leisure has just released their yearly list of the best islands in the world.

If you’re a regular reader of articles about islands, this won’t come as a massive surprise.

Palawan Island in the Philippines has been named the best island in the world for the third year running.

Travel + Leisure don’t just pull their rankings out of a sunhat, to be clear. The top ten islands list is a result of a massive survey of travellers, asking readers to share their experiences of holidays around the world.

Islands are rated on activities, sights, natural attractions, food, friendliness, beaches, and overall value.

Considering this is the third time Palawan Island’s been placed at the top of the list, it’s probably a good shout if you’re in the market for a getaway. One visitor describes it as the ‘single most beautiful place on earth’. Nice.

If you don’t mind going for second, third, or even tenth best, mind you, the other islands on the list look pretty sweet too.

Here’s the full ranking, from tenth place to first.

10. Bali, Indonesia
9. Hvar and the Dalmatian Islands, Croatia
8. Ischia, Italy
7. Kauai, Hawaii
6. Maui, Hawaii
5. Santorini, Greece
4. Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
3. Boracay Island, Philippines
2. Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
1. Palawan, Philippines

How economical a place is for the regular joe was probably a consideration in coming up with the list.
