Defined as land masses surrounded by water, islands form a world of their own.
It wouldn't be too wrong to call them microscopic continents. However, one thing that most islands worldwide have in common is a vibrancy and abundance of flora and fauna. There are several islands worldwide that have become either a tourist's haven or an ecologist's haven, or both, due to the varieties and species of plants, birds, insects, animals and other forms of life that thrive in them.

However, some of the other islands worldwide have attained fame due to the exotic nature of the culture of the inhabitants. An extensive list of the islands worldwide is given below. So for more information on these islands keep surfing through Mapsofworld.
