Islands come in all shapes and sizes. Some are super small and have a population of only a few hundred people, others are big enough to be the size of a country. They can be quite unique in the sense that sometimes they have their own culture, dialect, and native flora and fauna.
Most of the time islands are associated with amazing beaches where you can soak up the sun and relax with a cocktail in your hand. Considering there are over 100,000 islands in the world, it’s nearly impossible to visit them all. So, read on to find the 15 islands you should definitely add to your bucket list.
15. Isla del Sol – Bolivia
Isla del Sol, which means Island of the Sun, is located in Lake Titicaca, the largest in South America. The name of the island comes from the time of the Incas. They believed the island was the birthplace of the sun god Maco Cápac.
There are now roughly 800 families living on the island, but archaeological studies show the place has been inhabited for around 5,000 years. The population lives off agricultural crops, fishing, and the tourism coming from the mainland.
