An island resort is an island or an archipelago that contains resorts, hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions and its amenities. It primary focus on tourism services and offer leisure, adventure, and amusement opportunities. It is almost the same with seaside resort or beach resort, which offers beaches and water sport activities, such as sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and surfing, the only difference is that seaside resorts might located on the continent's seaside, while island resorts must be located on an island or archipelago.
Island resorts mostly rely on its natural beauty to attract visitors, such as pristine beaches, rich biodiversity of its coral reefs and forest, or its secluded and private location. While other island resorts might rely on their man-made built attractions, such as spas, amusement parks, casinos or its nightlifes.
