TripAdvisor Reveals Worlds Top Island Destinations; Bali in Fifth Place

TripAdvisor has unveiled the winners of its Travellers Choice Awards for Islands.

TripAdvisor says that award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions on islands worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period, as well as traveller booking interest on TripAdvisor.

With common traits like breathtaking beaches, exciting activities and popular hotels and restaurants, the Travelers Choice Islands are favorites of the TripAdvisor community, said Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. While most of these islands have year-round appeal, TripAdvisor hotel booking data shows that bargain-hunters can save nearly 30% per night on average when staying at the top U.S. islands during the shoulder season rather than the peak.

The shoulder season is deemed the least expensive season either right before, or right after the most expensive (peak) season, where travellers can still enjoy great weather, whilst making the most of seasonal discounts.
