We've all had the fantasy of ditching work to live on a remote island somewhere — preferably one with gorgeous beaches, to-die-for scenery, and delicious seafood (an outdoor bar would be nice, too). Well, those islands do exist, whether they be exotic spots in the South Pacific or places right here in the U.S. We've rounded up some of the most beautiful islands in the world.
It's hard to top the powder-soft white-sand beaches on the island of Bora Bora, which have calm azure waters and shallow lagoons, making them fabulous spots for snorkeling. One of the best ways to experience the island is to stay in an over-the-water bungalow.

Nature lovers will be in heaven in the Galápagos Islands, a Pacific volcanic chain. You'll encounter sea turtles, sea lions, marine iguanas, and Sally Lightfoot crabs — the same animals naturalist Charles Darwin saw when he famously visited in 1835.

Santorini is considered to be the fairest island of them all. Visitors never tire of snapping photos of its whitewashed buildings with cobalt blue domes, swimming in its beautiful black-sand beaches, and gazing at the dreamy sunsets over the Aegean Sea.
Fiji, a far-flung archipelago in the South Pacific, is practically synonymous with turquoise tropical beaches. Expect lava cliffs, crystalline lagoons, and mango groves, all of which you can take in from one of the chain's many exclusive adults-only hideaways.
While St. Lucia has its share of palm-fringed beaches, the island's most beloved feature are the Pitons, a pair of volcanic peaks visible from almost every part of the island. Rainforest treks, West Indian cuisine, and rum punches round out the experience.
The Roman emperor Tiberius was so transfixed by the beauty of Capri, off the coast of Naples, he transferred his imperial household here in A.D. 27.
