Top 5 of the world’s isolated islands

Islands are the stuff of dreams the world over: the warmth, the palm trees, the animals… But they also attract a whole host of people. Would you like more peace and quiet? Mondassur has the list of the world’s most isolated islands. And for every trip, travel insurance to cover you and your family.


The Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are 500 kilometers from Ecuador. Made up of some sixty islands, this archipelago is calm with many exotic animal species: cormorants, pink flamingos and, of course, giant tortoises live in their natural environment. The region also boasts numerous volcanoes.

Cook Islands

In the middle of the Pacific Ocean, 15 islands spread over 2 million km² (more than 3 times the size of France!) make up the Cook Islands archipelago, which has just 16,000 inhabitants. It’s not here that people fight to reserve a deckchair by the sea – there’s room for everyone on the white sands. These islands are home to many parrots in their natural state.

Tristan da Cunha

Tristan da Cunha is the world’s most remote archipelago! Difficult or even dangerous to access, the local population lives from agriculture, fishing and stamp sales. Lost between South Africa and Argentina, this archipelago is made up of steep cliffs bordering the sea. Birdwatchers have set up their observatory for albatrosses, penguins, moorhens and other exotic species.

Easter Island

Easter Island, this jewel in the Pacific, is accessible via Chile, 3,700 kilometers off the coast, so you’ll need to prepare for a long journey. It is famous for its gigantic statues carved from basalt. This small island has seen an increase in tourism, which has become its main resource, with 40,000 visitors a year. Many activities are available for tourists: surfing, horseback riding…

The Kiribati archipelago

The Kiribati archipelago lies around 1,000 kilometers from Hawaii. This archipelago boasts some of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world, and the seabed is sublime.
