Dream Islands – Our most beautiful island holidays

Categories: Travel reports, General

Are you sometimes ripe for the island? 🙂 We love islands, whether they are only 300 meters long or the size of Iceland. The atmosphere on an island is often somehow different from that on the mainland. We have noticed that we have already been on a number of dream islands, which we would like to introduce you to.


Maldives – Our first holiday together on Veligandu Island

One of our first holidays in 2012 took us to the Maldives – definitely the epitome of an island paradise with palm-fringed beaches and crystal clear waters. After a long research we have found a real dream resort here: the Veligandu Island Resort & Spa. The journey by seaplane alone was magnificent. And the Overwater bungalow made us completely speechless. A truly perfect holiday and an absolute dream destination, which we can only warmly recommend to everyone. Arrive, take off your shoes and just feel good.

Bora Bora – Dreamy South Seas at Sofitel Private Island

Bora Bora is an atoll belonging to the Group of Society Islands in French Polynesia and considered one of the most exclusive, luxurious and expensive destinations in the world. The island paradise is located about 16,000 kilometers from Germany and is therefore one of the widest destinations that can be approached by us at all. We integrated Bora Bora into the itinerary of our world trip and spent six great days at the Hotel Sofitel Bora Bora Private Island. The small private island offers relaxation and great snorkeling and is a real South Sea dream.

Galapagos Islands – A UNESCO World Heritage Site

The Galapagos Islands are an equator archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, consisting of 13 larger and more than 100 smaller islands. 97 of the country and 99 of the surrounding waters is under strict nature conservation and the extraordinary flora and fauna of the islands are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. To see as many of the different Galapagos islands as possible, we opted for an eight-day island hopping tour that took us to the most beautiful spots of the archipelago. The diverse flora and fauna, breathtaking underwater world, bizarre volcanic landscapes and unspoilt nature make this island chain a destination that should not be missing on any bucket list.

Hawaii – The “Aloha” Paradise in the Pacific

Hawaii is the most desensed populated place on Earth and is located 3,850 km from California, 6,195 km from Japan and 7,885 km from China. Somehow, at the beginning, we didn’t really realize how many individual islands the 50th state of the United States actually consists of and how different and beautiful each island is in itself. We spent almost two weeks on the islands of Oahu, Kauai, Maui & Big Island, seeing huge canyons, breathtaking mountain ranges & waterfalls, active volcanoes, beautiful beaches and a fascinating underwater world. The diversity of Hawaii is indescribable and the Aloha spirit has captivated us.

Palau is best known as one of the most beautiful diving areas in the world through the Rock Islands. The Rock Islands are tropically overgrown mini-islands that protrude from the sea like mushrooms. When taking a boat ride through this island world or on a sightseeing flight, breathtaking sightsarise together with the turquoise green sea.
