3. Holy Isle, Scotland
Holy Isle, which can be reached by a short journey from the Arran region on the west coast of Scotland, is now almost a spiritual retreat. Visitors usually come to the island for a day or two, stroll around and practice meditation and yoga for spiritual peace, or even attend one of the “lucid dreams and awareness” courses. To go to the Holy Isle, you can fly to Glasgow or Prestwick and take a train from there. Or if you are in a hurry to meditate, you can even hire a helicopter!

4. Traena, Norway
A fertile vegetation reigns in Traena, which is 65 km off the coast of Norway and fascinates those who see it with its steep peaks. On the island, which owes its popularity to Trenafestiva, every year, artists from all over the world perform in very interesting scenes (one of them is a cave).
Going to Treana can be a bit difficult. You can first fly to Bodo and then reach the island after a six-hour cruise. But you can be sure that it will definitely be worth it, as you will receive a warm welcome from the island locals, taste gourmet dishes from the best chefs and be in a truly impressive island setting.
5. Bozcaada, Turkey
Bozcaada, formerly known as Tenedos, stretching along the calm Aegean waters, is a true Turkish delight with its small hills, wonderful bays, lavender fields, wineries and cobbled streets. An exceptional place where you can enjoy life and always taste a glass of delicious wine, while the islanders play backgammon in the shade. To reach this wonderful paradise, all you need to do is fly from Istanbul to Canakkale and take a ferry from there.

7. Comino, Malta
Comino, which is a very small island, offers a peaceful and isolated holiday option. Its population is only four (yes, only 4!) The car-free island is a paradise for divers, windsurfers and hikers.
