What's great about an
Island Destination?

When traveling to other parts of the world, I'm sure that one of the first things you consider is the scenery or climate of your destination.

If you want panoramic views, kisses by the sun, and a warm ocean breeze at a beachfront restaurant then an island destination is the one for you.

The favorite islands are those which lie within the tropics with year round sunny weather . These are especially frequented by tourists from places with cold winter months such as America and Europe.

Islands are landmasses completely surrounded by water so you know what that means – beautiful sandy beaches stretching along blue clear seas. As a result, islands are popular spots for beach and sea activities such as swimming, scuba diving, sailing, fishing and exploring coral reefs.

Tourism is the main income generator for many small islands destinations, and local obtain employment opportunities in resorts, taxi and tour companies .

It's easy to live an outdoor adventure life when you live on an island. I should know. I've been living on one for all my life and I have visited six others in the Caribbean. Everywhere is accessible when you live on an island, especially the really small ones of which island hopping is so popular.
