We often ask the question “what are the most beautiful islands in the World?” and follow it up with, “I wish I lived in one!” Well, at least I ask this question myself many times in a year. That’s why, I figured I might as well find out and let you guys also know.
How would it be if you could just soak in the sun on the white sands, or snorkel the colorful underwater or get into the water for some windsurfing or or just stretch out the warm, golden sands whenever you like. What would it be living in the World’s most beautiful island? It will be amazing. Unfortunately, it will be impossible as well – for most of us can’t afford a private island.
Having said that, we can still take a holiday with or without family in one of the World’s most beautiful islands and relish the memories. This is why we haven’t listed here private islands where the rich-of-the-rich live in whenever required. Since we are on the subject, did you know that the following celebrities also owned their own beautiful islands:
– Actor Johnny Depp owns Little Halls Pond Cay island in Nassau, Bahamas
– Actor Mel Gibson owns Mago Island in Fiji
– Businessman Richard Branson owns Necker Island near Australia
Anyway, here is our list of island getaways for beach lovers who aren’t lucky enough to be owning a beautiful island right now. In all of these islands, time stands still – but then who is in a hurry?
