Quadra Island Sunset, British Columbia

Two Canadian islands made it in Travel + Leisure magazine's 2008 World’s Best Awards. The Top 5 Islands in the Continental U.S. and Canada include (in ranking order) Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia; Vancouver Island, British Columbia; Mount Desert Island, Maine; San Juan Islands, Washington State; and Cumberland Island, Georgia.

The rankings are the result of
