10 all-to-yourself islands

10 all-to-yourself islands We all dream of that Robinson Crusoe deserted-island moment. Well, it’s time to stop dreaming. We found 10 islands you can have (practically) to yourself.

The article lists these islands:
  • Isla Espíritu Santo near La Paz, Baja
  • Lummi Island, San Juan Islands, WA
  • Angel Island, San Francisco Bay
  • Santa Rosa Island, Channel Islands N.P., CA
  • Sauvie Island, Near Portland
  • Kodiak, Kodiak, AK
  • Elk Island, Grand Teton N.P., WY
  • Antelope Island, Great Salt Lake, UT
  • North Mokulua Island, Just off Kailua, Oahu
About Antelope Island, the article says:

Day-trippers are drawn to Antelope Island for its starkly beautiful windblown landscape. Picture miles of empty hiking and mountain biking trails, quiet roads for cyclists—even a surprise herd of free-range bison roaming around.

All to Yourself moment: Leave the beach frolickers behind for the secluded 5.6-mile round-trip Lakeside Trail, with views across the chalky blue lake.
