Go Off The Grid At These Remote IslandsLike3

Unplugging and disconnecting yourself from your stressful everyday life is as easy as visiting one of these remote islands on your next vacation. Sure, they’re not as famous as the Bahamas, or Hawaii, but they are so worth your time and will help you to mentally detox and commune with nature and all its wondrous creatures.

 

 

Lodge at Little St. Simons Island, Georgia

There’s 10,000 acres of nothing but forests and marshlands, and it’s so secluded that you won’t find more than 32 guests here at any given time. Plus, there are no phones or television, but plenty of water to fish, swim, surf, or just look up and bird watch. A Conde Nast Traveller Favorite!

 

 

Gili Trawangan, Indonesia 

The tiny island has dozens of seaside cafes, and the only way to get around is on foot or with a bike because there are no motorized vehicles allowed here. Plus, the only thing you’ll need to add to your itinerary is diving, fishing, and relaxing.

 

 

Pico Island, Portugal

Explore the ethereal lava landscapes on foot or head to the center of the island and find Pocinhobay, a popular vineyard that makes the best wine ever, and you can dine at Ancoradouro and enjoy the local cuisine like stewed octopus.

 

 

Bequia, Caribbean 

An island that still retains the color and adventure of the Old Caribbean, the tiny isle of Bequia, part of the State of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, is a true hidden treasure as one of the few unspoiled islands throughout the Caribbean Sea. No glitz and glamour here, just plenty of friendly locals, ever-flowing rum punch and dazzling turquoise waters perfect for snorkeling.

 

 

Pemba Islands, Tanzania 

The lesser-known islands of Tanzania – Mafia Island, Chole Island and Pemba to get away from the tourist and to clear your mind. Spend your day with the local fishermen, dive, eat and enjoy the beautiful accommodation on the island.

 

 

Sumba Island, Indonesia

Learn how to surf, snorkel or swim across crystal clear waters at Indonesia’s Sumba Island. You can also explore the different terrains like the dry savannahs of the North and East, or the alang alang grass of the central highlands, or the mountains in the south that include lush tropical vegetation.

 

 

Visit The Necker Island, British Virgin Island

It’s a private island in the British Virgin Islands that’s surrounded by blue water. In fact, some consider it to heaven on Earth, which might explain why this remote location is frequented by politicians and the rich and famous who enjoy the sandy beaches, sailing, water-skiing and casino night. Oh, and owned by Richard Branson!

 

 

Monte Isola, Italy

Monte Isola is a town and comune in the province of Brescia, in Lombardy. It is located on an island of the same name in Lake Iseo and, as of 2015, its population is of 1,770With mountains at 2,000 feet and a lake, Monte Isola is one of Italians best kept gem and definitely less touristy than Como, Bellagio and Varenna and a ferry ride to the country’s best sparking wine region according to Conde Nast Traveller.  

 

 

Hainan Island, China


Hainan Island is virtually unheard of to anyone but Chinese and Russian tourists. But you can enjoy the beautiful beaches, a volcano park, and an ancient Hainanese village and learn how to relax by the ocean while enjoying a nice glass of wine. But if you’re looking to channel your inner chi, then visit the Shaolin Buddhist temple and get ready to get the wind knocked off out of you. It’s simply breathtaking.

 

Faroe Island, Denmark

18 rocky, volcanic islands between Iceland and Norway in the North Atlantic Ocean, the Faroes are technically part of Denmark, though self-governed with steep cliffs, waterfalls, jagged coastlines, grassy valleys, and dramatic fjords. One of the 7 heavens on earth and a photographer and adventure paradise!

  • One of the very few images in @joalimaldives that I saved on laptop before my memory card on my drone got completely corrupted and wiped out everything. 💆🏼 Note to self: Sh** happens 🐠 ☀️
  • She has a thousand things to say to you... and a thousand reasons not to 💫
  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
@joalimaldives
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia.
