Beach + Island

Islands on Sale

by Brook Wilkinson and Eimear Lynch

Conde Nast Traveler

Is there an upside to the down economy? If you're an island-goer, the answer is an unqualified yes. Places that were once prohibitive for many are now more accessible than ever before (hello, Seychelles!), and even old favorites are seeing their prices chopped (this is the summer for Fiji). We hunted down 14 of the best island bargains around the globe, from the Seychelles to Jamaica, Hawaii to Sicily. Even better, prices will be falling further throughout the summer, and many of these deals are good through December. So grab your bikini and get going—you won't see prices like these again anytime soon.

Note: Sometimes great trips are easily booked on your own, but sometimes it helps to have a destination specialist who really knows the region inside and out, and whose connections can secure upgrades and even better deals than you could find solo. We've listed the names of travel agents from Wendy Perrin's annual World's Top Travel Specialists list wherever we think having one would enhance your experience.
