"On an island in the sun. We'll be playing and having fun!" If you're in the mood for a vacation, take a virtual one to an island of your choice with this quiz! From all the islands located around the world, can you identify them by a picture?

When most people think about taking a trip to an island, their minds immediately travel to the tropics. Vacations on islands like Jamaica, the Bahamas and Bermuda are extremely popular. What many fail to realize is that there are many islands located all around the world, over 2,000 to be a bit more precise. While most minds stay stuck on the Caribbean, you could travel to each and every continent to find its own islands!

Taking a trip to Europe, you'd find the islands of Iceland, Cyprus and Sicily. The continent of Asia houses islands like Japan and the Philippines. One of the seven continents, Australia, is also an island. With all these islands spanning the globe, could you identify them from a picture? 

Could you identify the island sitting in a southeast harbor in Africa? Could you pick out the island of Hispaniola that is made up of the countries Haiti and the Dominican Republic?

If you can, you're ready for this quiz! Will your score leave you vacationing from island to island or will you be stuck at the office until further notice? 

Let's find out!
