The August 2010 issue of ISLANDS magazine features the top 10 ranking (with 11 through 20 as bonus picks) of the world's best island villas.

Click on the numbers below to see each villa, and click on the photo to go to that villa's website to book your stay. You can also see Top 10 Best Villas list optimized for your iPad yet viewable on any desktop browser.
