Κεφαλονιά: Ανάμεσα στα δέκα καλύτερα νησιά της Ευρώπης!


Τη λίστα με τα 10 καλύτερα νησιά της Ευρώπης, σύμφωνα με το TripAdvisor, δημοσίευσε στην ιστοσελίδα του και το CNN, όπου φυσικά στην 6η θέση φιγουράρει η Κεφαλονιά!

Η κατάταξη βγήκε με βάση την άποψη των τουριστών που έχουν ήδη επισκεφθεί τα νησιά, ενώ η Ελλάδα είναι η χώρα με τη μεγαλύτερη εκπροσώπηση στη λίστα.

Το σίγουρο είναι ότι όποιος επισκέπτεται το νησί μας το …ερωτεύεται και θέλει να το επισκεφτεί ξανά και ξανά, αφού μένει μαγεμένος από τις ομορφιές του. Έτσι θα γίνει και φέτος το καλοκαίρι…

Ας δούμε όμως τι έγραψε αναλυτικά στην ιστοσελίδα του το CNN:

(CNN) – Ambergris Caye, in Belize, has held on to the title of world’s No. 1 island for the second year running in awards by the travel review site TripAdvisor.

The island is acclaimed not only for its beaches but for its coral reef — the second largest in the world — limestone caves, and tracts of tropical rainforest dotted with waterfalls.

Islands in Polynesia (Bora Bora), Greece (Naxos) and Thailand (Ko Tao), as well as Marco Island, off Florida, were other winners in the top 10 global list.

Perhaps less obvious postcard-rack material, the Scottish island of Harris and Lewis ranked no. 5 worldwide and top among European islands.

Alastair Lockett, from the Hebridean island’s tourist board, was not at all surprised by the accolade.

With its “pure white sand” and “turquoise water,” Harris and Lewis — which ranked nowhere in last year’s top 10 — actually “looks Caribbean,” he told CNN.

Its “accessible remoteness” and “sense of space” were what drew people to the island, he said.

Best U.S. islands

Among the 10 best islands in the United States — aside from Marco Island, at No. 1 — were Chincoteague, in Virginia, known for its wild ponies, and San Juan island, in Washington, acclaimed for its orca-sighting.

Mauii, a beautiful possible shoe-in from Hawaii, was another U.S. winner, as was the “golfer’s paradise” of Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Trailing in the wake of Lewis and Harris among 10 best European islands was Gozo, Malta; Santorini and Cephalonia, among a clutch of Greek islands; and Mull and Mainland, the largest of the Orkney Islands — making up a Scottish trio.
