Product Description

Product Description

Amazon.com Review

Islands Magazine is one of the most informative publications around. It focuses exclusively on island vacations and features thoughtful articles with themes of white beaches, crystal clear skies, and blue oceans. All of this is presented with stunning photography and high-quality printing. The magazine does a great job of inspiring would-be travelers to visit featured islands.

Not only does Islands Magazine cover popular and well-known tropical islands such as the Caribbean and Hawaii, but the editorial team also does a great job of including as many lesser-known islands as possible from every corner of the globe. The articles are well researched and presented, resulting in a great leisure-time magazine.

The magazine offers several features that are particularly helpful to a vacation planner, such as the bulletin section, which has important facts about featured islands. This information includes accommodations, restaurants, and attractions. The bulletin offers cost of living analyses, price analyses, contact details, and more.

Islands Magazine has relevant adverts containing great deals on travel. A classified section lists homes available for vacation rental by locals, giving you alternatives to the usual hotel arrangement and letting you save money in the process.

Islands Magazine can help you dream up an island vacation and then plan it. If you're tired of your routine and need a vacation, Islands Magazine can inspire the vacation spirit and help get you out of the rut.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enticing Photography May 8, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Islands Magazine is a must for the travel lover. Each issue features stunning photography, articles from people who have visited various world islands, and advertisements on popular travel destinations around the globe.
The articles covered in this magazine usually focus on popular islands for travelers, like the Caribbean, South Pacific Islands, Hawaii, etc. But on occassion, the magazine features other islands, too, including those that are not as popular as tourist destinations like the Balearic Islands, Ceylon, Madagascar, and others.
There are LOTS of advertisements in this magazine, and that might not sit well with some readers who prefer more articles and less selling. But the ads are helpful to the reader because they often include bargain prices. There are also classified ads from other readers who have island vacation property to rent.
If you like to travel and you love water, then Islands magazine is a great publication to read. The photography alone makes it worth while. It will tempt you to head to the nearest travel agency and book your tropical beach vacation asap!

4.0 out of 5 stars the great escape March 14, 2002
By Gen
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I'm a canadian girl (picture snow-filled childhood) currently living in Seattle (picture gloomy, dark, rain filled days --10 months of the year). Until 3 years ago, my husband and I were living in the virgin islands, and before that, I spent several years in Trinidad. Imagine my sunshine withdrawl. Sometimes I think we truly must be crazy to have left. This magazine is a regular fixture in our bathroom, and I practically stalk the mail man, waiting for it's arrival each month. While I can't afford a real tropical vacation every time I need one, Islands gives me a great quick-fix, allowing me a glimpe of the island life I dream of one day returning to. With stunning photography and wonderfully written island profiles covering every corner of the globe, this is the best subscription I've ever ordered. I'm hooked for life. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was because there are (in my econo-travelers opinion) too many advertisements for high-priced resorts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Visions of Paradise.... December 27, 2002
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is the only magazine I subscribe to - I love it because it has wonderful timeless images of places and people which simply exude calm, chill, beach bum latitude attitudes. There's little cultural or political commentary here; these destinations are described and presented simply as perfectionist's paradise - which may not be reality, but it makes me want to hop on a plane and go. Photography is top notch and there is a section at the end of every issue giving travel details for each island described (including local costs, times, and places to stay and eat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great photos. But that's all, folks! [UPDATED] November 20, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
The photography is fantastic. I love the shots of tropical islands, clear blue sky, soft white sands, palm trees, and crystal ocean water. Basically, paradise on display. Period. Unfortunately, everything else about the magazine is disappointing: The articles are junk, usually full of random babble which provides no real insight into searching, planning and executing a vacation. The advertising is marginally better, but the options are all limited. I can (and do) get more useful information from my travel agent, discount travel magazines & brochures, word-of-mouth, and the internet.
I thought this magazine would be a great "virtual" vacation every time it arrived in the mail. The problem was that it only lasted about 15 minutes, the amount of time it took to read through the entire mag. The one claim to fame, however, for Islands magazine is that it introduced me to my honeymoon destination, the South Pacific, many years ago. Even with this, though, the most useful information was found on the internet.
For about $15/year, this isn't a bad deal. But, if anyone knows of a magazine with Islands' photo quality, and useful articles, please post.

UPDATE: (2014) I've recently re-subscribed to Islands magazine. It still has fantastic photos, but the writing has also improved, and so has the usefulness of the articles. For example, in the two most recent issues of June and July/August 2014, there are added articles about moving to the Caribbean, living on an island, the "tropical" Isles of Scilly off the UK coast, retiring to an island, and much improved advertisements. STAR rating Original - 3; Revised - 4/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Islands magazine review July 17, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year
This is a very nice magazine. The pictures are always high quality. The articles are interesting and provide different viewpoints, depending on the author. The magazine does a good job of mixing islands from different parts of the world, not just the Carribean or South Pacific.
Ordering through Amazon was a good experience - the price was low and the magazine started coming much earlier than they had projected. My wait time was only about 3 weeks rather than the projected 8 to 12 weeks.
I would order again.
