Go Off The Grid At These Remote IslandsLike0

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!

  • I miss you with all my heart and soul...
  • A year ago I was having breakfast with those beautiful giants. An unforgettable experience. Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my previous post 💕
  • I struggled to choose a caption for this image because they say that you are what you share on social media, and so, I wanted to make it count. 
Being a 'blogger' or a 'traveler' has changed significantly over the past few years. You can’t go on Instagram without stumbling upon hundreds of carefully selected, beautifully crafted images. 
The truth is, today, things are not the same as they used to be. Travel has changed and grown. The internet has given us a chance to see the world through people's eyes and to dream of places many of us never even knew existed. 
But social media has also changed travel and the nature of blogging. Sharing my travel online has today somewhat been a constant pressure and the staging of every single photo has become the business of every instagrammer. 
I have felt the pressure of keeping up and carefully selecting what I chose to share. 
I've even promised myself that I would be a leader, not a follower, and stay far away from online traveling trends that would warp my ability to offer my readers the very best & honest tips and insider reports. 
The key...is confidence... I had the chance to make every possible mistake and figure out a way to always recover from it. Once you realize that there is life after a mistake, you gain your confidence and that, never goes away,
It goes straight to the heart and once you have that, no one and nothing can take that away from you . . I hope I’ll always have the courage to live a life that’s true to who I am and not the life that others expect of me... 💕[Click link in bio to read the full article] 💕.
