- Cocos Island, Australia
Cocos Islands were settled in 1826 by Alexander Hare, an Englishman.
Even though Cocos Islands are a part of Australia, the mother language of the islands is Malay and English.
This paradise island with an area of 14,2 square km (5.5 sq mi) only has about 600 inhibitants. At least you'll be found quite fast in case you get lost ;)
The newly named Cossies Beach in the Cocos Islands has been named Australia's top stretch of sand by beach expert Brad Farmer.
In Cocos Islands 80% of the population are Muslims.
- Zanzibar, Tanzania
Islam arrived to Tanzania with the Arab slave traders.
Did you know that 98,9 % of the population in Zanzibar are Muslims?
Fun fact: Did you know that there's an island in Tanzania south of Zanzibar called Mafia Island? It has some quite nice places to dive.
- Lombok, Indonesia
Lombok is also known as the island of 1,000 mosques simply because there is a mosque in every corner!
Lombok is the place to feed your halal cravings and the place to try all the cocktails you've never been able to try. Plenty of mocktails (alcohol-free drinks) are available in Lombok.
Many hotels in Lombok promote themselves as Islamic with Qibla stickers and copies of the Quran in every room.
If you take a drive around the island you can't avoid noticing cute little boys with kufis and girls with hijabs leaving school in small groups or in a long line along the road.
The Maldives converted from Buddhism to Islam in 12th century.
- Langkawi, Malaysia
Langkawi has a long raining season of nine months from March to November.
The island has 28 mosques and if you've ever met a Malaysian you will know how welcomed you will feel anywhere you go. Langkawi is a duty-free island, so you might consider buying the gifts for family and friends back home at this island.
