For a relaxing vacation, it's hard to beat a tropical island. The sun, the sand, the clear blue ocean with a nice breeze ... it's paradise.
Of course, there are hundreds of tropical islands where you can vacation, and not every one is going to provide the magical trip of a lifetime. That's why TripAdvisor does an annual island survey to find the top 10 islands its users prefer. Here's the list for 2015. How many have you heard of?
10. Fernando de Noronha
Situated off of Brazil, this archipelago is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with restricted access. That means it's a little hard to get a reservation, but if you get there you can enjoy swimming with dolphins and turtles, and hiking beautiful trails through green forests and stunning cliffs.
9. Bora Bora
If you're in the mood to visit French Polynesia, Bora Bora is your destination. It has white sand beaches, gorgeous lagoons, coral reefs and stunning marine life. Plus, the food is top notch.
