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.


The tradition of wooden boatbuilding on Grenada began among the Scottish settlers who took up fishing from the island’s many bays. The boats’ lively colors, however, are more indicative of French, African and South American heritage, which also inspired the vibrant village of St. George’s. Arrayed between 18th- and 19th-century forts, many of the town’s brilliantly hued apartments provide waterside rooms for visitors, who spend their days exploring nutmeg fields, swimming under waterfalls, watching cricket games or tasting rum straight from the barrel. In the evenings, people gather at local eateries to dig into the day’s catch: jerked marlin, barbecued snapper, conch cakes. And should they tire of seafood, there’s always the national dish—”oil down,” a spicy stew of beef, chicken, breadfruit and coconut milk.

    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.
