When you think of an island, what instantly comes to your mind is a place away from the rat race, where you can simply relax and gaze at a calm blue sea all around. But not all islands are the same. The sea surrounding some islands is crystal clear with plenty of thriving corals. Some others have lush green jungles and beautiful peaks.
