This is the fourth book in the BBC Unforgettable. Again I shot 26 of the places in the book, travelling the equivalent of seven times around the world on 99 different flights in a very busy year! Islands are so often unique - their very isolation allows them to be different: culturally, socially, ecologically and even geologically! Unforgettable Islands to Escape to Before You Die takes you to some of the most spectacular islands on the planet. Some are remote, others you will never have heard of. Some are more familiar but are shown in a way that will surprise and intrigue you.

In Unforgettable Islands to Escape to Before You Die, intrepid world travelers Steve Davey and Marc Schlossman remind us that islands are as varied in their nature as they are in their location. The 40 islands featured in this lavish book and captured in 300 gorgeous photographs are in all corners of the world. Of the hundreds of islands the authors have visited, these are the most beautiful and captivating. For the adventurous traveler looking for new sights and dreaming of unforgettable experiences, this lush book is an inspirational guide to the most spectacular islands in the world.

Steve Davey is the author of the first book in this series, Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die. A writer and photographer, Steve has turned his day job into a way of life. He graduated with a photographic degree in 1988 and has travelled compulsively ever since, photographing amazing places, cultures and festivals. Steve markets his work through La Belle Aurore, the agency he co-founded in 1992, and his words and pictures have appeared in many publications around the world.

For many of us today lying on a beach for two weeks is just not enough any more. These books are not travel guides and they're certainly not definitive, but they will introduce you to a host of spectacular places that can all be visited in a regular two-week holiday or less. Compiled by the people who really know, each book will be written by an expert writer and photographer who will visit each location in person.

Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die is a travel book written and photographed by Steve Davey, with additional photography by Marc Schlossman. It features 40 sites, including both places of natural beauty and historical importance all over the world, and in all but one of the continents.

Steve is the author and principal photographer of Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die and Unforgettable Islands to Escape To Before You Die, both published by BBC Books.

The authors select 40 unusual and amazing islands that can help you find paradise during a break of two weeks or less. Suggestions feature some highly individual destinations, ranging from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong Island, to the arctic beauty of Stockholm which is built on 14 islands.

Review of ‘Unforgettable islands to escape to before you die’ by Steve Davey and Marc Schlossman.

CITATION: Davey, S. and Schlossman, M. (2007). Unforgettable islands to escape to before you die. London: Firefly Books.

Reviewer: Dr W. P. Palmer

‘Unforgetable islands to escape to before you die’ is a well produced book in colour, not big enough to be a coffee table book, but too large to take in one’s luggage. Its dimensions are 0.8 x 7.1 x 9.5 inches and it weighs nearly two pounds. However it is a little gem for those addicted to island travel. The choice of just forty islands from the tens of thousands of islands in the world is obviously a difficult task and any traveller would agree with the choice of some the islands, but would replace others with their own favourites. The text accompanying the pictures is good but often some of the attractions on the islands are omitted. For example, Tanna Island in the Vanuatu archipelago is mentioned but not its fantastic volcano where molten lava bubbling and exploding in its crater can be observed.

The forty islands featured in ‘Unforgettable islands to escape to before you die’ are listed below:

Eleuthera, the Bahamas
Kubu Island, Botswana
Islands of Lake Tana, Ethiopia
Pico Ruivo, Madeira
Sagar, India
Islands of Serenity, Tokyo, Japan
The Vanuatu Archipelago, South
Western Pacific
Cousine and Praslin Islands, the
Seychelles
Hong Kong, China
Si Phan Don, Laos
El Nido Islands, Palawan, Philippines
Arnorgos, Greece
The Golden Temple, Amritsar, India
The Florida Keys, USA

Yasawa Islands, Fiji
Madagascar
Lord Howe Island, Australia
