Sri Lanka listed among latest ‘Top 25 Islands in the World’ list for travellers
Sri Lanka has been listed among the latest list of ‘Top 25 Islands in the World’ for holidaymakers by the influential Travel+Leisure (T+L) magazine.
Published by the American media conglomerate, Meredith Corporation, Travel+Leisure in its latest issue this month has ranked the top 25 islands in the world.
Sri Lanka has been ranked at number 24 along with Seychelles with a score of 88.20.
According to the magazine, this year’s World’s Best Awards survey was open for voting from 11 January to 10 May, as destinations around the world were lifting Covid-19 restrictions.
The best islands in the world, according to T+L readers, are the kind of Instagram-perfect destinations that travellers fantasise about on winter evenings: dreamy, sun-drenched landscapes surrounded by the bluest waters.
It was a Greek island Mílos with a score of 95.50 that emerged as the readers’ top choice.
Others islands in the top 25 list were Folegandros, Greece; St. Vincent and the Grenadines; Madeira, Portugal; Andaman Islands, India; Sicily, Italy; Koh Samui, Thailand; Bali, Indonesia; Island of Hawaii; Galápagos Islands, Ecuador; Kauai, Hawaii; Maui, Hawaii; Santorini, Greece; Maldives; Hvar and the Dalmatian Islands, Croatia; Sardinia, Italy; Harbour Island, Bahamas; Aruba; Palawan, Philippines; St. Lucia; Mallorca, Spain; Anguilla and Eleuthera, Bahamas.
Sri Lanka’s tourism industry is once again on the path to recovery after facing the impact of the global Covid 19 pandemic and its affect on the global tourism industry. There has been a steady growth in tourist arrivals to the country since early this year. Sri Lanka’s aggressive tourism promotions in several tourist source countries, the deals and packages offered for travellers and easing travel restrictions within the island for foreign travellers have made Sri Lanka an attractive destination for post Covid travel. The identification of Sri Lanka as a must visit destination as well as one of the top 25 island destinations in the world have further boosted Sri Lanka’s attraction as a tourism destination. All these have expanded the business/investment opportunities in Sri Lanka’s tourism industry with the industry showing a growing business potential.
