If you’re planning a summer holiday, preparing a gap year itinerary, or maybe even deliberating over where to go on your honeymoon, you may want to take a look at TripAdvisor's latest "best of" list before making your final decision. The travel review website has rounded up the world's best islands, as voted for by its island-hopping users.

Topping the list this year is Providenciales in Turks and Caicos, which is ringed by some of the world’s prettiest beaches. The island came second in last year's awards, pipped to the post by Ambergris Caye in Belize, which didn’t made the cut this year. Tropical seems to be a recurring theme, with only two European destinations making the top 10.

Honeymoon-favourite Santorini comes in at number four, while Ko Tao in Thailand – a popular choice with gap-year travellers makes the list at number five. Islands such as Madeira, Bali, and Mauritius are also in the top ten, coming in at six, seven, and eight respectively.

Here’s a round-up of all the islands.
