The popular travel magazine Travel+Leisure has chosen the ten most beautiful islands in the world including the Croatian island of Hvar.
Whether you are in search of culture, adventure or you just want to lay somewhere on the beach with a cold cocktail in your hand, one of the islands from the list will surely be an ideal summer destination.
This years’ list was compiled by readers of the famous travel portal Travel+Leisure based in New York.
The Dalmatian island of Hvar placed as the ninth on the list, followed by Bali in Indonesia. In addition, the first eight most beautiful islands are Ischia (Italy), Kauai and Maui (Hawaii), Santorini (Greece), Galapagos (Ecuador), Boracay (the Philippines), Hilton Head (Southern California) and Palawan in the Philippines as the most beautiful island in the world.
This year three out of ten islands are located in Asia. However, as far as Croatia is concerned, this is a huge recognition and promotion for the island of Hvar, the Adriatic coast and the country as a whole.
