Your Wanderlust Will Go Crazy When You See 'The Best Island In The World'
Everyone knows tropical islands are the perfect place to have fun under the sun.
However, when it comes to finding the ultimate oasis in the middle of the ocean, not all islands are created equal.
So then, which destinations serve as the ultimate seaside escape?
Travel + Leisure magazine just released its annual list of the best islands the world has to offer, and an island in the Philippines called Palawan snagged the number one spot for 2016.
It turns out this isn't first time that Palawan has been recognized as a prestigious paradise, since the small Pacific island claimed the same title back in 2013.
Now, you're probably wondering, "What makes this place stand out amidst a sea of impressive locales?"
Well, to put it simply, Palawan is just an island that seems to have it all.
From the stunning white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters to flourishing rainforests and breathtaking mountains, this diverse island is an insanely beautiful place that offers all sorts of awesome activities.
Whether you're looking to grab your scuba tank and scope out the coral reef, go on a hiking adventure through the tropical forest or work on your tan as you lounge around on the beach and drink piña coladas, Palawan has something for every type of traveler.
No really, I should probably warn you: Seeing this place is pretty much guaranteed to give a serious case of vacation FOMO.
