Island hopping getaway

When we are traveling, we always go to the beaches in summer. It is just the right time anyway to spend summer because the weather is hot. Therefore, staying on the beach would really be relaxing. But, instead of going to the beaches alone, why don’t we also try to explore various islands in the world.

Do you know that if you get to an island, you will not just do the swimming, sailing, fishing and kayaking? You can also get the chance to dive and snorkel, where you can see the most beautiful marine species in the world. It could have been better if you can see them under the sea, so that you will know how it feels like seeing them live.

There are so many islands for you to choose from in the whole world. You might even find it difficult to decide because all of those islands are great and amazing. Now, if you are planning to spend your holidays on an island with your family, friends or loved ones, then we have here some of the islands to check out.

Paros, Greece

Do you know that there were about 30 million tourists, who came to Greece for a Greek island experience? The Paros Island is found along the Aegean Sea. It is very popular due to the traditional villages around and of course, the beaches. Some of the famous spots you can visit when coming to Paros are the Panagia Ekatontapiliani, a church from the Byzantine era; the Kolympethres, a scenic beach with natural rock formations; Paros Archaeological Museum, an exhibit of artifacts; and the Aqua Paros Water Park, a good spot to visit if you are traveling with kids.

The Maldives

In 2014, a paradise in the Maldives became a UNESCO’s exclusive hideaway. It is called the Four Seasons Private Island Maldives. This island is found along the Indian Ocean with 26 ring-shaped atolls made up of over a thousand coral islands. You can find here blue lagoons, extensive reefs and of course, beaches. If you come here, then give time visiting the National Museum, where you can find artifacts from the history of the Maldives and various beaches as well as snorkeling spots, such as the Maafushi, Meeru Island, Kuramathi and Hulhumale.


This island is a part of Hawaii and it is along the Central Pacific. It is commonly called, as the Garden Isle because of the tropical rainforest in the island. This island is not just a place to enjoy the beaches. But, you may also try hiking in the area because it has mountains around. If you come here, you should not miss checking out the Na Pali Coast State Park, a great spot for camping or hiking trails; the Waimea Canyon State Park with a really impressive canyon view; the Polihale State Park with a good cliff view and white sand beaches; the Na Aina Kai Botanical Gardens with bronze statues, of course, would always be an amazing scenic garden; and the Albert Spencer Wilcox Building with archives preserving the local history.
