This small, private island - just a mile long by half a mile across - was abandoned in the 1970s following the collapse of the coconut industry.

Isabel, Kiah and Louise Fitzgerald are here to help give you the inside track.

It is now devoted to providing the ultimate desert-island experience and to a conservation project aimed at restoring its indigenous flora and fauna. The ultra-luxurious North Island Lodge is the only one on the island, and with so few guest villas, ensures an exclusive and tranquil atmosphere.

Each of the extremely comfortable villas has a private deck, a plunge pool, ocean views and an electric buggy for exploring the island. North Island has four white-sand beaches, a large freshwater pool and a spa perched high above the beach with stunning views of the ocean.

As for activities, there is good snorkelling around the island and neighbouring Silhouette Island, and a fully equipped dive centre offers instruction and easy access to some of the world's best dive sites. Sea kayaking, fishing and boat trips to other islands are also available.

On land, you can explore the island on foot or by mountain bike. Apart from its small population of (extremely grateful) humans, at certain times of year the highly endangered Hawksbill turtles return to lay their eggs in the soft sand of North Island's beautiful beaches.

Last but not least, top class cuisine is an integral part of the North Island experience. Menus are created by the chef each day according to guests' preferences, ensuring a memorable culinary experience.

Why we love it

There may be more idyllic places in the world than North Island, but we doubt it.
