Leading US-based travel magazine Travel + Leisure has named one Croatian island among the 21 most beautiful islands in the world.
Travel + Leisure recently published its list of the 21 most beautiful islands in the world, with the Croatian island of Hvar coming in at No. 12.
“Hvar is located right off the coast of mainland Croatia, and its main town, also named Hvar, offers the perfect mix of history, charm, and beautiful beaches. Spend hours wandering its cobblestone streets, and explore the island’s incredible wine scene, which dates back thousands of years,” Travel + Leisure wrote.
The Caribbean island of St. Lucia topped the list.
“Between its picturesque Piton mountains, tranquil waterfalls, leafy palms, and stunning coastline, the island of St. Lucia is, in a word, idyllic. The Caribbean locale is beloved by hikers, but also divers and snorkelers — there’s even a dive spot called Fairyland, known for its colorful corals and turtle sightings,” Travel + Leisure said.
Bali, Martha’s Vineyard, Maui, Bora Bora, Ischia, Bermuda, Mallorca, Santorini and St. Kitts and Nevis also featured on the list.
