How to rate

This is pretty straightforward. Just click on the stars and make your judgement.


(no stars) Avoid
Nothing for this category on this island. So there is no surf, no culture (only possible on an island that has never had any human impact), no beach, no wildlife, etc.
Hardly worth mentioning. There is something to be found here, but that same thing can be found almost anywhere else and better too.
There is something to be found here for those who are not picky or those who come here looking for something very specific.
Whoever you are, you will find something of your longing here that is satisfying enough to justify a visit to this island.
Even if you are spoilt, have seen or experienced more than most others, you will be impressed with this island.
Top of the bill
You will not so much feel rewarded for visiting this island, you will  feel blessed! Five stars are only handed out to the absolute best, to   the magical islands of this planet, the iconic ones. The Galapagos,  Easter Island, Bali, New Zealands South Island, etcetera.
