Top 10 Greatest Islands

The men's portal AskMen.com has published their list of the Top 10 Greatest Islands. French Polynesia ranks first for its breathtaking scenery and friendly Polynesian people, while Fiji comes second because it is "exotic, exhilarating, exciting". Somehow, the Fiji Visitors Bureau's multi-million dollar marketing of Fiji as "the truly relaxing tropical getaway" didn't click with AskMen.com writer Harry Marks. But Marks certainly is correct when he points out that Fiji has something for everyone.

The other eight islands on Marks' list are Tioman, Cuba, the Canary Islands, Jamaica, Santorini, Sapi, Mauritius, and Zanzibar. It's hard to argue with any of those, although I'd have picked Reunion instead of Mauritius. In the South Pacific, my favorites list would definitely have included Samoa. And of course, I'd have mentioned the little paradise where I live, Vancouver Island.
