Fake islands created by man don't have to look or feel artificial; in fact, there are dozens of beautiful paradises around the world that offer nothing but highly habitable land masses.
Most offer communities where luxe living is the norm and several are focused on environmental sustainability. A few islands offer every amenity one could need for living, so much so, they could be considered small countries.
We've seen a few such islands featured on Trend Hunter before, many of which stem from Dubai, such as The Palm and The World. To supplement what we've already posted, International Listings recently featured an article on the Top 10 Man-Made Island Paradises, proving heaven can be found anywhere on Earth.
The following is a list of beautiful man-made islands that include communities from North America and Spain to the Middle East and Japan.
