CANOUAN

This tiny island located about 120 miles southwest of Barbados is quickly becoming a popular travel destination among the world’s elite. Canouan is a secluded island, with no direct flights from the U.S., so many visitors must fly to an airport in St. Vincent, Grenada, St. Lucia or Barbados and then take a short flight by private jet or propeller plane to get to there. The Mandarin Oriental Canouan, which recently took over the old Pink Sands Club, is the premier hotel on the island and has five restaurants and bars, a freestanding spa and a golf course, among other amenities.

LORD HOWE ISLAND, AUSTRALIA

Guests looking for both privacy and beauty can look no further than Lorde Howe Island. No need to worry about overcrowding here; only about 400 visitors are allowed on the island at one time to experience the natural features, which include the famous twin peaks, subtropical forests and clear waters. The island was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage property in 1982 due to its beauty and biodiversity. Visitors take advantage of many local attractions, including feeding wild fish by hand at Ned’s Beach and hiking Mount Gower.

FAROE ISLANDS, DENMARK

With dramatic landscapes and stunning waterfront views, The Faroe Islands are a must-see for any traveler. Located between Iceland and Scotland, lies this breathtaking string of islands that were once considered Danish Viking territory and today occupy about 50,000 residents. Luxe features are being added to the islands every day, including Michelin-star restaurants and trendy shops for tourists. Koks Restaurant won its first Michelin star in 2017 and has a staff of 10 chefs (each from a different country). Reservations are recommended for this exclusive restaurant; it is open from April to September and only serves 24 customers a night.
