65 Incredible Island Innovations

Inspired by the Premiere of Survivor Redemption Island

— February 16, 2011 — Eco
The count down is finally over, as the premiere of Survivor Redemption Island airs tonight. The 22nd seasons of the reality series promises more twists and turns as its competitors battle it out for the top prize. Filmed on the beautiful beaches of Nicaragua, my mind is filled with thoughts of sun and sand.

This collection of incredible island innovations, including movable islands and floating boat villages, has been inspired by the premiere of Survivor Redemption Island

Implications - Even if you are not a fan of Survivor, you will surely be a fan of these amazing tropical destinations. Whether you're into buying your own island or hanging out at nature-inspired resorts, this is the perfect place to get inspired for a relaxing and sunny vacation.
