No surprise that this mega-popular Indonesian island is the most posted about, with more than 60 million hashtags. With its glorious beaches, lush jungles, hippie yoga retreats, surf culture and ultra-luxe hotels, islands don’t get more photogenic than Bali.
For the last few months, we’ve been travelling almost exclusively in our daydreams – and much of the time, those daydreams have been fuelled by Instagram. Looking at snaps of other people’s travels can be an ace way to plan your own future adventures, whenever they may be. Ready to set off on another virtual adventure to somewhere beautiful and remote? Then get a load of this lot: the most ’grammed islands on the planet, from little Mediterranean spots to large islands lush with life.
The ranking is based on the number of live, hashtagged posts associated with each island. (Some aren’t technically individual islands but archipelagos, island nations or groups of islands generally lumped together as one.)
Many of these islands could be ideal places to swerve crowds, once flights resume and international travel is back on the agenda. For now, they’re something lovelier to look at than your now very familiar four walls.
