It’s around this time of year that we always start fantasising about our next holiday. The days are getting shorter, darker and colder at a rate of knots, but the excitement of Christmas is still some way off – and our summer break feels like a lifetime ago.

All of which makes it the perfect time, or maybe just perfect torture, to take a look at the world’s loveliest islands. Some 300,000 people took part in a survey to find the best islands on the planet as part of Conde Nast Traveler’s Readers Choice Awards – and these are the 20 they chose.

Happy daydreaming…
