The Least-Visited Country in the World Is the Closest Thing

Postby SW RANGER » Thu Aug 08, 2019 3:51 pm

If you've always dreamed of a private island getaway, this might be the next-best thing: An island hardly anyone visits.


That's right, according to a report by the United Nations World Tourism Organization, there's a tropical island that gets fewer than 2,000 visitors each year. So you won't have to fight for a nice spot on the sand if you travel here, or to one of the 11 least-crowded islands in the Caribbean.


The country of Tuvalu in the South Pacific promises to be an unspoiled sanctuary for however long you decide to stay—and since it's an average 87 degrees year-round, we'll assume that might be a while. Expect pristine beaches, a low crime rate, and a thriving marine ecosystem of atolls, lagoons, and coral reefs. This paradise is spread throughout the nine islands that make up Tuvalu.

He did indeed. Then did a roaring trade in answering questions about it!

Cool video! Thanks for that. I read a few books about it all but hadn't seen that.

I tried to get him to write the foreword to my Bradt Travel Guide to Equatorial Guinea, but no luck!
