Vacation is about getting away from it all, right? Away from the pressures of everyday life, the traffic jams, the Starbucks on every corner. On uninhabited islands, the rest of the world just melts away, leaving behind simple pleasures and unhurried days.

We’ve scoured North America (and nearby waters) for these 10 unique uninhabited islands. Make the journey and discover incredible wildlife, pristine beaches, and rich history. Time it right and, apart from a few island caretakers and the occasional fellow adventurer, you’ll have these isolated dots on the map all to yourself.
