The Benefits Of Living On An Island


Want to pack your bags and live off on a remote island? 

So many of us have dreamed of this. City life can certainly pack a punch of stress, caffeine, and lots of street lights. They have their perks but sometimes all we want to do is relax on an island. 

An island is a piece of land surrounded by the sea. Beautiful turquoise waters, with colorful corals and impeccable marine life. This piece or body of land could be as huge as Greenland or small as islands from the Maldives. (In hindsight, Greenland is not actually “huge”, Maldivian islands are just extremely tiny). Nevertheless, the size, an island is an island. But not all are the same.

Tokyo? It’s on the island of Honshu in Japan. While Manhattan, the financial capital of New York is also an Island. In fact, New York City has a total of five islands that is the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island. So maybe not all islands are of the same charm or the same size. 

For the purpose of this tiny blog, we are going to be talking about more paradisic islands. They are idyllic, remote, and away from the busy city life. We are talking about islands like the Zanzibar island or the isles in Fiji. They have pristine white sandy beaches and cocktails to fill upon. So what are some amazing benefits of living on an island? 

Unbelievable Natural Beauty 

An island is a lot of things but beauty is the one word that stands out. The sunsets and sunrises on an island can make you feel like you are in heaven. They are colorful, peaceful, and amazing to look at. The ocean is blue and the sun reflecting can be like stars reflecting on the ocean. Greenery is lush and so is the produce from agriculture. 

Amazing Weather 

Islands tend to have tropical climates. They are sunny, warm and you don’t have to freeze anymore. You can enjoy the cool breeze from the seaside of the island and even sleep on a hammock. It is again, peaceful weather.

A Relaxing Getaway 

Relaxing. It is underrated in city life. There is no relaxation in the hustle and bustle of the city. But on an island, there no such thing as a day with stress. You may have some problems or work stress but they leave as fast as they come. Not even a damaged roof guttering can bother you. This is one place in the world that simply won’t stress you out.

Best Place To Work From Home 

Is there a better place to work than on an island? A lot of islands tend to have internet now and they have 4G as well. 5G is yet to reach some islands but it will reach there as well. Despite the 4G network, be warned that you may have slower internet speed compared to the city world. It is still worth it and you can still get your work done in your own peace. If you want a change of scenery, take down your work laptop to the best hammock down the beach and do your work right on the beach.
