Living the island life | 8 stunning island beaches to add to your travel bucket list


Living the Soi 55 lifestyle is all about doing more of what makes you happy and well, what can we say? ...Island beaches make us VERY happy! 

We've spent years finding bucket-list worthy island beaches from around the World. From Australia to Indonesia and Hawaii to Cornwall we've ticked some beautiful boxes is our top 8!


Karma Beach, Gili Meno - Indonesia
The quietest of the three tropical island paradises that lie just off mainland Lombok,
Gili Meno is a white sand haven. Good for your soul!


Waimea Bay, Oahu -Hawaii
Famous as a world class big wave surfing spot but also the clearest snorkelling around. Aloha!


Horseshoe bay, Magnetic Island, Queensland - Australia
The whole of Magnetic Island is full of beautiful beaches to explore but Horseshoe bay was by far our pick of the trip!  The perfect island for an Australian adventure. 


Beachcomber Island, Yasawas -Fiji
Just because it's a party island doesn't mean it is lacking in tropical vibes. The whole sandy white circumference of Beachcomber is lapped by turquoise ocean and tropical fishies. I mean... why wouldn't you have a cocktail at the end of the day?

Pulau Tioman, Malaysia
So worth the cross jungle trek complete with monitor lizards. The adventure to the beaches on this tiny island off the East Coast of Malaysia will make you feel like a pioneer.

Dream Beach, Nusa Lembongan - Bali, Indonesia
It's called Dream Beach and you can drink fresh coconuts all day long. Need I say anymore?

St.Agnes, Isles of Scilly, Cornwall - England
Maybe not the 'island life' you've been expecting but don't knock these Cornish islands until you've tried them. Beaches like this one can be found all over St.Agnes meaning this group of rugged islands are very worthy of a place in your list.


Loh Dalam Bay, Koh Phi Phi - Thailand
Limestone backed Loh Dalam really is a beach to while away your day. Koh phi phi's backpacker reputation of buckets and boozing won't phase you once you've stepped foot on the sandy bay.

We're feeling pretty smug about all our travels to these blog worthy islands over the past few years but we've still got plenty on our travel bucket list to go. Have you got any sandy suggestions for us? We'd love to hear them!
