Saying these secret islands are not on maps is probably a stretch, but we can almost bet that there are many islands on this list that you never heard of. It’s going to be hard to pick the best island to visit, so you might as well start saving up and visit them one by one.
1. Holbox Island, Mexico
Secret island number one is three hours away from the well-known Mexican destination of Cancún. Away from the crowds, this secluded slice of heaven is the perfect place for you to enjoy the sand under your toes and forget the world out there. When booking, try searching for CasaSandra Boutique Hotel. The cute casitas with palapa roofs are an absolute delight, and you will feast on the best seafood of your life!
2. Desroches Island, Seychelles
To get to this island, you will have to get on a plane and enjoy a 40-minute journey from the capital of Seychelles, Mahé, to the Desroches Island. And the only thing you will find there is… a secret resort. Away from the fuss of everyday life, you will enjoy the tranquility of the white sand beaches while staying in a luxurious villa. Swim in your own private pool, go for a dip in the blue ocean waters, and feel the tropical vibes. A vacation on such a secluded island is truly a unique experience.
3. Côn So’n, Vietnam
If you are looking into a list of secret islands to visit because you want to explore untouched nature, you should pick Côn So’n. Vietnam has an archipelago made out of 16 islands, and even though Côn So’n is the biggest one, it seems to go unnoticed by visitors. It’s just an hour away from Ho Chi Minh City, and it’s such a dreamy place. The sparkling waters are of deep turquoise blue, and the granite cliffs provide an exquisite natural contrast. And even though there are no bars or shops, you can still enjoy every modern-day commodity at the private island resort Six Senses. From personalized guided tours to a Zen spa experience, you will have plenty of things to keep you busy.
