8 Underrated Islands You Need To Consider On Your Next Vacation

These islands are so underrated when they are just as beautiful as the famous ones.

Let’s get real. Most of our fantasized island destinations are overcrowded. As much as we want to enjoy the sun and the beach along with its adventure, sometimes, it’s more relaxing when there are fewer people.

Rather than opting for islands that are always making the best list, why not consider these eight less boasted islands. You’ll be stunned by the beauty and serenity it holds.

3. Dominica, Caribbean

This is the volcanic island in the Carribean with a champagne reef. Why? It’s because of an underwater geothermal spring with hot bubbles which make snorkelers and divers feel as if they’re bathing in champagne. Mostly covered by rainforest, this volcanic island offers several long stretches of black sandy beach, hot springs, and awesome natural swimming holes.

6. Santa Rosa Island, California

Most tourists head to the famous Catalina Island but what they didn’t know is that the Santa Rosa Island, the second largest in California’s Channel Islands, is just as delightful but without too many people.

Since there are no hotels nor services on this island, camping, hiking, and trekking are some of the things can do here while appreciating the beauty that this island has.

Between the island duo, Trinidad and Tobago, the better and more serene choice to go to is the smaller Tobago. Everything is close to you including beaches and Carribean’s underwater paradise because the island is only six miles wide with not many vacationists.
