Sustainable Travel Tip: Select a Car Free Island for Your Next Getaway Vacation
One of the easiest ways to support sustainable travel is to select a car-free island for your next family vacation.
Car-free islands, generally, have a healthier population due to less air pollution and a less sedentary population, improved conditions for culture and leisure facilities, more space set aside for gardens and parks, more energy-efficient and water-efficient buildings (due to necessity), higher real estate values, and lower rates of crime, among other benefits.
To provide some additional eco-inspiration, while I've written about our travel experiences in Hydra, Greece and more recently Mackinac Island, Michigan, here is a list of other U.S States and countries who have designated entire islands as car-free.
- Mont Saint-Michel
- Île de Porquerolles
- Île de Sein
- Île de Batz
- Archipel du Frioul
