Travel + Leisure has released its annual ranking of several travel categories, including hotels, cities, and cruises. But the one we are most interested in? Islands.

The below list of the top ten islands in the world is based on the results of a reader survey where travel aficionados were asked to use their own experiences to make a judgment call on which islands were the best all-rounders.

The final list includes entries from all over the world, including three from Europe. None of the Great British Isles have made the top ten, but we are sure they wouldn't have been far behind.

The general feel of the list is certainly hot, tropical and peaceful. Here are the top 10:

10. Bali, Indonesia


As well as its beautiful paradise beaches and forested volcanic mountains, Bali also has a rich history and culture.

9. Hvar and the Dalmatian Islands, Croatia


You can't get more Mediterranean than these red roofs. Croatia is certainly a trendy holiday destination right now.

8. Ischia, Italy


On top of classic Italian beauty and delicious food, the volcanic island of Ischia also has thermal hot springs.

7. Kauai, Hawaii


Kauai is nicknamed "The Garden Isle" because it is covered in tropical rainforest.

6. Maui, Hawaii


Maui is home to one of the world's most famous black sand beaches.

5. Santorini, Greece


Those blue roofs atop white-washed houses are iconic for a good reason.

4. Galapagos Islands, Ecuador


Sure to be on everyone's bucket list, the Galapagos Islands are one of the world's richest spots for wildlife and nature.

3. Boracay Island, Philippines


It may be just 4.5 miles long, but that makes Boracay even more of a haven.

2. Hilton Head, South Carolina


This is more of a resort island with gold courses, beaches and tourist relaxation galore.
