While we think San Blas is the number one top archipelago islands travel destination there are other places in the world that are almost as beautiful. After you visited San Blas archipelago you might want to consider visiting these places.
Top travel destinations
We ranked the following destinations on pristine beauty, unexplored by massive tourism and white sand crystal clear water beaches. We are not going to sum up the typical island destinations such as Bora Bora, Hawaii, St. Eustatius, Maldives, Tahiti, Fiji or Seychelles. Because we think they are boring and only bring you luxury, relaxing and expensive budgets but no culture, pristine conditions or adventure. The following archipelago’s are on the break of becoming top travel destinations.
Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar (Burma)
Just like San Blas the Mergui Archipelago in Myanmar is one of the least explored archipelago islands in the world. This archipelago of islands counts around 800 small uninhabited islands that all have crystal clear water and white sand beaches filled with coconut trees. The only problem is that they are relatively inaccessible because of the unstable political conditions in Myanmar. You can only access the islands with permission of the government or via special travel agencies. Nevertheless, the Mergui Archipelago is soon to be one of the top travel destinations in the world. More information about Mergui on the official website: www.mergui.org.
