Fair Isle, Scotland
This tranquil island of the northern coast of Scotland, made famous for its unique style of knitting. The island is only 3 miles long and one and a half miles wide and is home to just 60 people! Fair Isle seems to be the perfect location for a socially distanced staycation.
Despite being just a short flight, or slightly longer rowboat ride from the UK, the Faroe Islands are largely off UK holiday maker’s radars. The collection of 18 islands offer intrepid travellers stunning landscapes, charming villages, and an exciting new culinary scene.
Easter Island, Chile
Accessible from mainland Chile, Easter Island is home to possibly the most recognisable landmarks in the world. Spend some time here diving and snorkelling or relaxing on the expanses of brilliantly white sandy beaches.
The third smallest country in the world, after Vatican City and Monaco, Nauru used to be called ‘Pleasant Island’ and it’s not difficult to see why. Spend some time here visiting the old phosphate mines, snorkelling in the coral reefs, or sun-bathing in the South Pacific sunshine.
Diego Garcia, Indian Ocean
A British Indian Ocean Territory, Diego Garcia is an air and naval base for the US and British militaries and is otherwise uninhabited. Head to Turtle Cove for a spot of snorkelling or explore the atoll on foot.
Kiribati, Central Pacific
This remote island nation is popular among the most intrepid travellers, and with 33 islands spread of over 3.5 million square kilometres and a population of 100,000 people, it’s not hard to see why. Plenty of beaches, fishing, bird watching, and isolation awaits.
Sakhalin Island, Russia
With a colourful history often swapping between Russian and Japanese ownership, Sakhalin is covered with wild forests, streams full of fish, and lots of bears. The weather can be extreme, long freezing winters are followed by humid and short summers.
Part of the British Overseas Territory of Saint Helena, Ascension, and Tristan da Cunha, is an isolated volcanic island. Just 88 square kilometres in size, is populated by just 800 people. The BBC called Ascension the ‘island where nothing makes sense‘ but it’s one of our favourites. Green mountain makes for a wonderful hike with spectacular views, and Ascension Beach is a great place to turtle watch.
Part of the British Overseas Territory of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands. With a colourful history, and largely undeveloped landscape, South Georgia is the perfect locale for adventure travel.
Lirpa Sloof, Greenland
This tiny island is one of the smallest in the world, the population of locals are known for being tricksters and regularly prank each other due to an ancient tradition. Before you visit, make sure you’ve packed your whoopee cushions and rubber snakes!
We hope this unique escape has left you feeling inspired for your next holiday. Happy April Fools’ Day from Charitable Travel!
