Condé Nast Traveler readers ranked the 30 best islands in the world outside the United States in the 2017 Readers' Choice Awards survey.
Among the best islands around the globe, from the Far East to the West, an island from Croatia has also found its place on this prestigious list.
According to Condé Nast Traveler readers, the world’s best island is Boracay in the Philippines, whilst the Croatian island of Hvar placed as the 28th on the list.
''Lush vineyards, secluded coves, and winding medieval streets attract visitors to this 42-mile-long island off the coast of Croatia. The Adriatic island is as popular with backpackers as it is with luxury yachts, and this summer brought the debut of UberBOAT, connecting Hvar to towns along the Dalmatian coast'', wrote Condé Nast Traveler about Hvar.
Condé Nast Traveler also added some useful tips for travellers to the island, ''Hvar is a popular base for exploring additional islandsfarther afield, including other Pakleni Islands that are home to caves, coves, and nude beaches, which can be reached by rental boat.
