TripAdvisor has just announced the winners of its 2016 Travellers’ Choice Awards, which named the top 10 islands to visit around the world.

The islands were chosen based on reviews of the attractions, restaurants, and hotels they offer, as well as increased booking interest on TripAdvisor.

The travel site also included the average nightly rates of all bookable hotels for each destination, as well as what you can expect to pay each season.
