Reason #62: This year Brač is not on TripAdvisor’s Best Islands list
- Ambergris Caye, Belize Cayes
- Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
- Bora Bora, Society Islands
- Marco Island, Florida
- Lewis and Harris, Outer Hebrides
- Naxos, Cyclades
- Aitutaki, Southern Cook Islands
- Nosy Be, Antsiranana Province
- Easter Island, Chile
- Ko Tao, Surat Thani Province
So, is that a good thing or a bad thing?
Certainly it would be cool, just like it was cool when Brač was on this list. And it would be great advertising.
Or, should we console ourselves that we’re better off not having hordes of tourists rush over here and disturb our peace? :D
In any case, we can take a look at why these other islands are so popular and see if we can learn from that.
Here’s a list of all the things mentioned in the articles about the top ten islands. Things tourists like them for:
Coral reefs, diving and snorkeling, beautiful nature, sunsets, long sandy beaches, upscale resorts, beautiful water, relaxation, peaceful, activities, romantic atmosphere, great food, mountains/volcano, hiking, golfing, mystical, historic, secluded beaches, flora and fauna, festivals.
Brač has some of these, but we could definitely work on adding a few more to attract quality tourists.
