The gorgeous natural landscape is forest of pine, maple, hemlock and cedar, boulders left by glaciers and a lovely sandy beach. It’s a private island with the accommodation being a red log cabin. Wouldn’t that make a lovely wedding present?

Isla Corazón, Argentina

Isla Corazón, Argentina South America’s Heart Island sits in Lake Mascardi,in the North Patagonian province of Rio Negro. It’s not one of the purest-heart shaped islands but from certain angles it takes on the lovely form we expect. The island is a charming place covered with trees, and is one of two islands in the lake popular with fishermen, but there are also some lovely beaches as well as fabulous views of the area.

Sadly, heart-shaped islands only give up their shape when seen from above, but just knowing you’re on one adds that extra special touch of frisson to the honeymoon experience. Would you love to spend your honeymoon on a heart-shaped island?

The man made ones look awful and fake but the natural few that are mixed in look amazing

Are these man-made islands?

Thank you Neecey Beresford :)

Wow! Earth is an amazing Wonder, beautifully created.

One requires permission before visiting nethrani island in India. It is usually used by the armed forces for target practice. Snorkelling and other diving stuff can be done during dec to jan, but can't stay there!
