In the past couple of years, I’ve been lucky enough to visit some islands I thought I would only ever see in my dreams, or as a laptop computer screen. I’ve written about some of the 20 best and unique Islands I’ve been too, but here I’m going to focus on the ones that are a little heavier on the wallet.
Aruba, Antigua, Fiji, the Maldives and Mauritius are some of the most famed, and expensive, island vacations you can have. Having now been to all five, I’ve learnt a thing or two about not only cutting costs but also about which ones stand out the most for me.
This is, of course, my personal take, and depending on where you live the flight times and costs might dictate which one to visit, but below I’ll try to highlight the best reasons to visit each of these luxury islands. (For those interested, Mauritius takes my top spot with the Maldives, at least the resort island style of exploring the country, not appealing to me).
