san blas eilanden

Who doesn’t dream of spending a few days on a bounty island? Waving palm trees, a clear blue sea, a pearl white sandy beach, a relaxed hammock, the sun and a coconut or cocktail in your hand! I love to daydream about this and there are so many bounty islands in the world that I would like to visit!

I have selected the 10 most beautiful bounty islands in the world for you!

1. Bora Bora, French Polynesia

This is my absolute dream destination and is a true paradise on earth. It is located in the Pacific Ocean between Australia and South America. The great white beaches, the turquoise lagoons, the breathtaking views, the crystal clear and deep blue water and the chic resorts make this volcanic island a destination that must absolutely be very high on your bucket list.

Unfortunately, it is an expensive destination! Among celebrities, Bora Bora is a very popular destination and you can, for example, view the “Wall of Fame” of the Bloody Mary’s Restaurant & Bar and see which celebrities have all celebrated holidays here.

2. The Cook islands

These 15 fairytale islands are one of the most beautiful islands in the world! The island group has an isolated location in the middle of the South Pacific, because the closest inhabited islands are Thahiti (1200 km east) and Niue (1100 km west). Most accommodations on the Cook Islands are small-scale and not super luxurious or exclusive like on Bora Bora and therefore slightly more affordable!

Rarotonga is the main island of the Cook Islands and has a number of cozy bars. In the other places you barely encounter people and you are completely alone in paradise. The coral reefs, the lagoons and the mountains rising from the sea make the island so breathtaking! Diving and snorkeling in the ocean is also very cool to do here.

3. The Seychelles

This archipelago consists of 115 beautiful islands and is located north of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean about 1600 km east of the African continent. Less than a third of all islands are inhabited. The Seychelles are unique in the world, because a number of islands, namely 42, consist of granite and have no volcanic or coral bottom.

The beaches are bright white, the sea is clear blue and the inland is magical green and this makes the Seychelles a perfect bounty destination. Because of the remote location of the Seychelles, there are 81 unique plant species that can not be found anywhere else in the world. The underwater world has a variety of fish, dolphins, coral and sea turtles.

4. San Blas islands, Panama

The San Blas islands consist of 378 islands and lie off the Caribbean coast in Panama. Of the 378 islands, 49 islands are inhabited by the Kuna Yala Indian tribes. The Kuna’s have their own culture and live according to their own rules and laws on these islands.

You explore the islands by renting a boat with a skipper and enjoying the untouched nature and culture. All accommodations are small-scale and there are no luxury resorts. A very affordable paradise for everyone! The white sandy beaches and the many swaying palms and the peace and simplicity make your time here unforgettable.

5. Palawan, the Phillipines

Palawan consists of one large island and hundreds of small islands and is a wonderful place to go island hopping. The unique castle rocks, the clear water and the hidden lagoons make this island the pearl of the Philippines. It is a great destination! Palawan is also called “Philippines’ Last Frontier” because of the relatively intact rainforest and mangrove forests. The beaches are deserted, bright white and full of palm trees and many colored fish swim in the sea. It is also an eco destination, because the government is committed to supporting sustainable tourism.

7. Santorini, Greece

The most beautiful island of Greece is Santorini. This island is picturesque and idyllic with the white villages, the small alleys and the houses with the blue domes. Cliffs are high and impressive! Santorini itself is small and with a quad or scooter you discover the whole island! The beaches are volcanic and therefore not pearl white, but black or brown.

Santorini is a very romantic island because of the many cozy spots that are there and it is the most photographed island of Greece. Especially the sunset is a phenomenon on Santorini. The terraces of Fira and Oia are filled with tourists who all want to experience the amazing sunset.
