The World’s Most Romantic Islands 2015

Days of wine, orchid petals, and blissful beaches: T+L readers voted on their dreamiest island escapes.

No. 16 St. John

This U.S. Virgin Island flirted with readers by being both wild and civilized. Two thirds of the island is made up of national park land, and it has no airport, making it feel nicely off the grid—yet it has enough plush resorts to avoid feeling too isolated. Caneel Bay, built by Laurence Rockefeller in the 1950s, and updated a few years ago, has no distracting TVs or phones, and offers guests access to seven beaches, including the aptly named Honeymoon Beach. There are plenty of activities on the island for the adventurous, such as hiking along the Cinnamon Bay beach trail or snorkeling in the Virgin Islands Coral Reef Monument.
