Condé Nast Traveler: 2010 Readers’ Choice Awards – Longboat Key, FL named one of the Top 50 Islands in the World

Perfection is rare in the world, but you found it. Our 23rd annual Readers’ Choice Awards include 1,060 winners, elected by 259,116 readers whose passion is travel.

The world’s top 50 islands hide a big secret: There are actually more than 3,300 of them, stretching from the South Pacific to the North Atlantic. Consider Bermuda, the top-rated islands in the Western Hemisphere—yes, islands. Comprised of 138 isles, it is, like many winners, an archipelago. There are 3 Caymans, 41 Tuamotus, 115 Seychelles, and a whopping 1,185 Dalmatians. The No. 1 winner (for the 14th time), Maui is the only island to score above 90 this year. Closer to home, several North American islands make their top 10 debut: Victoria, Florida’s Longboat Key, and St. Simons

Longboat Key, FL is #3 on the North America portion of the list for top islands in the world for 2010.
