Biggest islands in the world


Biggest islands in the world, not counting Australia.

The biggest islands in the world? You will find them on all continents and a number of countries. The reason Australia does not count is that it is so big, it is considered to be a continent (Could it not be both?). Otherwise, Australia would qualify easily as the biggest island in this world of ours.
When you look at this list, you may find some countries, major islands belong to, you thought were rather small, like Denmark, but counting Greenland, in this case correctly, makes Denmark a much bigger country, so let´s do that. We do not talk inhabitants, simply size.
You will at find links to a number of these biggest islands in the world, for more travel inspiration and insight.
