For anyone with a yen for adventure, islands have always held a special allure. One has only to think of the wanderings of Odysseus on his way back to Ithaca or Robinson Crusoe's sojourn on a desert island to grasp something of this mystique. Islands are separate worlds, sheltering particular populations, languages, environments or groups of animals and plants, and insulating them from today's fast-paced, globalized way of life. "Top Islands of the World" showcases 27 of the most memorable island destinations, selected on the basis of their natural beauty, holiday appeal, cultural significance or natural history interest. The destinations are scattered all over the world, but with a special focus on Europe and the Mediterranean. Written by experienced travel writers, and featuring superb photography, detailed mapping and useful information on activities and excursions, "Top Islands of the World" will be an inspiration to armchair travellers and adventurers alike.
