44 Most Beautiful Islands To Visit

Dominica Island

Dominica, not to be confused with the Dominican Republic, is an island in the Caribbean with towering trees, lush green forests, and winding rivers. But, unlike so many other islands on this list, tourists usually don’t visit just for the fine sand beaches and resorts. Instead, Dominica attracts nature enthusiasts looking to enjoy the island’s well-preserved local forestry and wildlife. And, because Dominica is so adamant in its preservation and conservation efforts, it’s considered one of the most pristine and well-preserved places in the Western Hemisphere.
