Many things about our planet can surprise you thanks to nature , which is sometimes capricious and delights us with creations as curious as the ones I show you in this article.
I have compiled 5 islands that stand out for having very curious shapes that powerfully attract attention. In addition, they are located in paradisiacal enclaves, so there are plenty of reasons to visit them at least once in your life.
Tavarua Island (Fiji)
We would all like to invite our partner to Tavarua Island, a heart-shaped island located in Fiji. It has an area of about 120,000 square meters and is very close to the most important island in the country, Viti Levu. In addition, its appeal goes beyond that whimsical shape thanks to the coral reef that surrounds it, so it is not surprising that it is ideal for snorkeling and diving, although sports such as surfing are also practiced.
On the island there is not only vegetation, but we also find a tennis court, a restaurant, two beach bars, a gym, a swimming pool and a spa.
Li Galli (Italy)
Li Galli, in reality, is an archipelago where people with a lot of money tend to go. In fact, illustrious figures such as Princess Margaret of England, Greta Garbo or Jacquelin Kennedy have stayed there. Gallo Lungo is the largest and the one with the shape of a dolphin , as you can see in the image shown on these lines.
They are in front of the Amalfi Coast and there is a legend that says that mermaids lived there. Be that as it may, what we can say is that in Gallo Lungo there is a Roman tower, a heliport, a small dock for boats, a chapel, a luxury hotel and three villas.
Chicken Island (Thailand)
In a touristy country like Thailand, not everyone knows that there is an island that is different from all the others. Its hen shape makes it special, and that is noticeable by taking a look at the rock formation that protrudes as if it were the neck and head of the animal, which seems to be watching what happens there.
Tourists who visit it usually take advantage of it to snorkel or dive, since the seabed is very beautiful. Of course, the overcrowding of tourism means that at certain times of the year the water is more cloudy than normal due to the large number of boats that approach Chicken Island.
Otok Gaz (Croatia)
It is a very small island located off the coast of Istria. It draws attention for its fish shape , the typical fish that we all draw when we are little. It is in the Brijuni National Park, in an archipelago in which there are 14 islands in total. Veliki Brijun is the most important of all, which is why it is much easier to reach it than to reach Otok Gaz, which is completely uninhabited and does not offer any service in its scarce 0.063 square kilometers of extension.
Isabela Island (Ecuador)
We end up in South America with this curious island that is shaped like a seahorse . It is the largest of the Ecuadorian archipelago of the Galapagos Islands and owes its name to Queen Isabel I of Castile, who was the one who financed the trip of Christopher Columbus. Of course, in English it is also known as Albemarble in honor of the Duke of Albemarle.
It has an area of 4,588 square kilometers and about 2,200 people live there. There it is common to see animals such as penguins, marine iguanas, pelicans, sea lions, turtles, finches, flamingos … Its shape, by the way, is due to the fusion in a single mass of its six volcanoes (Ecuador, Wolf, Darwin, Alcedo, Sierra Negra and Cerro Azul), five of which are active.
