Lonely Planet’s The Islands Book is your passport to the most intoxicating selection of isles, atolls and keys to explore. From remote, storm-battered Faroes to tropical oases peeking out above the ocean, there’s something magical about droplets of land surrounded by water and this is the ultimate guide for globe-trotters wanting to unearth new discoveries.
Presenting 150 of the world’s most unique and enchanting havens, each chosen for its rich history of secret stories, natural wonders or cultural heritage, The Islands Book includes profiles featuring an introduction from a Lonely Planet expert, a large detailed map that highlights points of interest and beautiful photography chosen to beckon paradise-hunters.
Will you be tempted most by the coral reefs of the Raja Ampat islands, the unforgettable food scene of Penang, Madeira’s gardens, the musical flair of Jamaica, the architecture of Sicily or the art of Naoshima?
The Islands Book will introduce you to the divers of Jeju-do, the artisans of Islas San Blas and the conservationists of New Zealand’s Codfish Island, as well as the birds of Lord Howe Island, the wolves of Isle Royale and Komodo’s scaly dragons.
Lonely Planet’s The Islands Book is out now in hardback for £29.99, available where all good books are sold.
