From Fiji to Stromboli, Zanzibar to the Bahamas, these 100 island destinations evoke dreams of romance and escapes to a distant paradise. Ranging across all the seas of the world--from the balmy Caribbean, South Pacific, and Indian Ocean, to both simple and sophisticated Mediterranean destinations, to the bustle of Hong Kong--this beautifully illustrated volume offers an exclusive tour of 100 of the most beautiful islands in the world, each one a trip of a lifetime. With essays and photographs by some of the world's most qualified and sophisticated travel journalists and photographers, this book offers a unique perspective for travelers everywhere by introducing far-off destinations that are not necessarily on the more familiar tourist itineraries. Islands includes useful maps and website information, making this an indispensable reference as well as a sumptuous book for the armchair traveler.
