There are places on Earth where you really feel like you're in paradise. Places where you can forget about everyday life among the crystal clear waters. In each of them you will find yourself in a different world: sometimes among palm trees, other times surrounded by mountains or beautiful villages. Each of them has its own treasures. We've created a list below of these heavenly places for you to start dreaming about!
What makes these islands the most special is the crystal clear waters around them. And that white sand on the beach! The Maldives have 26 atolls and are the lowest islands on earth. The islands are complete with beautiful coral reefs and turquoise water which attract diving fans from all over the world.
It is certainly not the cheapest destination. However, the price will be rewarded by luxurious houses on the water, perfectly matching the turquoise lagoon — a real paradise for diving and admiring the coral reef! A volcano also proudly presents itself on the islands. The original meaning of the island's name in the local dialect is: "created by the gods". They were not far from the truth.
The Seychelles are 115 beautiful islands, of which only 33 are inhabited. Many of them have jungles inscribed on the UNESCO heritage list. Most of the islands are under protection.

In Coron you will find beautiful resorts and El Nido will tempt you with breathtaking nature.

These islands are generally associates with cute pigs! But apart from these, the Bahamas have some of the best surfing and sailing spots to offer. You will find pigs on an island simply called Pig Island in the Exuma district. You can enjoy a less expensive vacation on Elbow Cay, Green Turtle Cay, with unique villages and Treasure Cay, with beautiful white beaches and blue water.
Also known as the Garden Island. Kaua'i is a tropical paradise with tropical forest, breathtaking volcanoes and cliffs. As one of the rainiest places on Earth, it has several microclimates, but also beautiful surrounding waters with a coral reef, turtles and unusual fish. On the island, it is worth seeing Hanalei Bay and the view of the cliffs, hiking along the Nāpali coast or admiring Waimea Canyon. We also recommend the sister islands of Maui and Ohau.
These islands are known from many films, including "Cast Away" with Tom Hanks. Fiji has over 300 islands in general, from which we have chosen Mamanuca, because it offers both luxury resorts, as well as places for backpackers and cozy hotels for families — something for every budget. For surfers, Cloudbreak is one of the best places in the world to surf!
Looking at them from a bird's eye view, the amazing spectacle of the colors and shapes of these islands are breathtaking: white beaches, green vegetation, indigo, blue water. They are also surrounded by the world's largest Great Barrier Reef, entered on the UNESCO list. Reportedly the most beautiful beach in the world, Whitehaven, is the cleanest beach and it is simply stunning with the white color of the sand. There are 74 islands in total, many of them still uninhabited.
It was hard to choose the most beautiful island because Thailand has plenty of them. We deliberately did not choose the popular Koh Phi Phi and nearby Maya Bay (known thanks to the DiCaprio movie), because everyone knows these places and they have become very crowded. The real treasure, however, is hidden under the water - parishes are formed by tunnels, caves and ravines, and the visibility is up to 32 yards. In this area you can see great fish, turtles and sometimes even whale sharks and manta rays. The Similans have been recognized as one of the most beautiful diving sites in the world and are in the Top 10!
Bali is an island where you can lose yourself in the chaotic city of Kuta, go to the beautiful southern beaches or Nusa Lembongan, surf in Seminyak or indulge in spiritual rapture, and take your family to Sanur. Ubud is the heart of Bali, a cultural hub, surrounded by rice fields and beautiful monuments. Almost every place in Bali has a spiritual significance. Particularly worth seeing is Pura Luhur Batuaku with over 10,000 temples on the hills with the spiritual center of the island - Gunung Agung.
Somewhere far in the Pacific is the archipelago of these 15 islands, between French Polynesia and the Samoa Islands. Aitutaki is similar to Bora Bora, but with much lower prices. Rarotonga is now the most popular island among tourists. One of the main attractions are the underwater caves and lakes on the islands of Mitiaro and Mau'ke. You can go to many smaller islands by canoe and simply enjoy the views or have a home-made beer in the local "tumun" — the club of beer lovers from the bush ;)
Pristine white houses, churches with blue roofs — this is what distinguishes Santorini from other Greek islands. Thanks to this, Santorini has become one of the most photographed places in the world. Fira and Oia are the most famous villages, situated on brown cliffs, they look great at sunrise and sunset. Other places worth seeing are Akrotiri with the ruins of the ancient city or Perissa black beach.

Hvar has beautiful gothic churches, an old town and a fishing port. Paklinski Islands known for their clear water, Korčula is associated with red roofs of buildings, and Mljet hides two salt lakes.
On Capri in summer you can meet many VIPs from all over the world. Therefore, in cities like Capri and Anacapri, you should expect slightly higher prices than in other regions of Italy. Who would think about money, however, when you are surrounded by the blue sea, magnificent cliffs, grottos, and amazing food on land! Amore!
What are they most famous for? Tourism and, of course, financial services. It is also a great place for those looking for a good vacation. Huge numbers of sea turtles, giant stingrays and rich fauna distinguish these islands. The best places for diving are around Stingray (stingrays), Bloody Bay Wall, Babylon and Ghost Mountain with beautiful coral reefs.
