The largest island in British Columbia has been ranked as one of the best islands in North America.
For its 34th annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey, Condé Nast Traveler asked readers to weigh in on their favorite islands from around the world. The top picks were then divided into the following categories: the United States, Europe, the Caribbean and the Atlantic, Asia, Australia and the South Pacific, Africa and the Indian Ocean, the ‘Central and South America, and finally the “Rest of North America.”
While three Canadian caps placed in the top five in the “Rest of North America,” the category does not include the United States, which has its own.
Vancouver Island was British Columbia’s only selection on the North American list, placing fifth. Across the country, Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia took the top spot. It was followed by Prince Edward Island in third.
The top five islands in the “rest of North America” include:
- Cape Breton, Canada
- Prince Edward Island, Canada
- Isla Holbox, Mexico
- Isla Mujeres, Mexico
