When planning a trip, there are plenty of islands to choose from. However, Europe’s islands seem to have it all — sun, sand, cuisine and culture according to Travel and Leisure. With an endless array of landscapes, activities and everything under the sun, these destinations offer an experience for every taste.
Travel and Leisure recently asked their readers to take a survey, sharing their travel experiences of islands around the globe. The readers rated islands based on their natural attractions and beaches, activities and sights, food, friendliness and overall value. Among the top ten islands ranked, the islands of Greece make up half of the list. Even more interestingly, the Italian island of Ischia became No. 1 this year, knocking the Greek island of Santorini to No. 2 after five consecutive years.
So, while summer may be coming to an end, it’s not too late to make a trip for some island Vitamin D and fun! Check out the full list of this year’s best European islands and more ‘best of’ lists from Travel and Leisure.
