PICS: Three of the most beautiful islands in the world
Planet earth is littered with some insanely beautiful, isolated islands. Many are surrounded by bodies of clear blue waters teeming with extraordinary ocean life. Here are three of our favourites.
This Philippine archipelago is paradise. With nearly 2000 glorious islets and island outposts surrounding this main island, it has a strong claim to being one of the most picturesque places on this planet. This island even has a five-mile-long underground river to compliment its turquoise waters.
The Greek Islands are simply phenomenal. But there's just something that makes Santorini a cut above the rest. Maybe it's the multicolored cliff, or maybe it's the magnificent panoramic views of the ocean. Whatever it is, it just takes your breath away.
Maui, the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands, is a dream. The climate is typically tropical making it a popular destination for sunbathers looking for some kickass weather. It's a great destination if you enjoy activities like snorkeling, surfing and kitesurfing.
