Ireland an island? I thought it was a borough of London.

I'd vote for Vanuatu

I'd vote for Vanuatu

Especially as it's been found to be the happiest place on the planet on the Happy Planet Index

Me? Serious? I think that's a rumour being spread by jase007

I still think that including Tasmania as an island is not correct. Who, when thinking of taking an island holiday, thinks of Tasmania?
No-one. That's my point.

I've never been to Tasmania, but people who go there seem to love it. It has some pretty amazing national parks and some historic towns (by Australian standards). I guess it's the closest to a "European" type of atmosphere that you can get down here.

I've been to Hamilton Island a few times. It's a tropical island off the Queensland coast. The complete opposite to Tasmania. It's small, very warm, tropical and is a resort island but with a main street with shops, etc. So it's a bit more than just a resort.

I've been to some Greek Islands, and also to Majorca. Majorca was truly amazing. Smaller than Tasmania of course, but quite "large". I was amazed by the diversity of the landscape on such a small place. You could be on a warm beach and see mountains in the distance which had snow on them. There was also a mixture of different towns; from the capital of Palma with it's population of 250,000 to small, historic hillside towns (think cobbled streets, churches, etc) to bustling seaside resort towns. A truly amazing place.
