Treasure Islands

As the temperature drops in the Northern Hemisphere, a certain flight impulse takes hold in travelers' hearts. So, to help facilitate your escape, we offer a dozen of the world's best island destinations—from tropical to temperate, and classic to unexpected.

CAPE BRETON, CANADA

While it may not be widely known that “Nova Scotia” is Latin for “New Scotland,” spend some time on craggy, mist-shrouded Cape Breton and the moniker will make perfect sense. This emerald island in Canada’s Maritimes is ideal for slightly less sun-loving travelers looking for peace and quiet. The Cabot Trail, a 185-mile coastal drive, is considered one of the best road trips in Canada; plus, the golf courses on Cape Breton are world class, and the opportunities to hike, camp and ponder the sea are ample. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s erstwhile summer resident Alexander Graham Bell: “I have traveled around the globe. I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes, the Alps and the Highlands of Scotland, but for simple beauty, Cape Breton outrivals them all!”

    With a circumference of 64 Kim the island has 10 major sites to visit. There are several more interesting sites in the mountains and steep valleys well worth the effort hidden waterfalls and cool pools.
    The wonderful Mantigue Island 20 minutes off shore offers a true Robinson Crusoe experience, with the greeting ” hi friend” a nice touch by all the local kids.
    New flights from Cebu (Pacific) every MWF offer an easier route however for me the ferry ride arriving from Balingoan or Fast Cat from CDO always give the best view and excite the new visitor.
