The trip of a lifetime doesn't even require a passport.

We're big fans of far-flung destinations over here — and we fear no crazy-long flight if it means arriving at a bucket-list island destination. But the people have spoken in a big annual contest — and the masses say that the best island in the whole world is right here at home.

That's right, TripAdvisor's Travelers' Choice Awards deemed Maui the top island anywhere on the planet, based on a mix of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants, and attractions.

Jet setters from aroud the world come to the Hawaiian locale, which features the Haleakala Crater and golden sand — and wildly Instagrammable backdrops. As far as domestic destinations go, several Floridian islands including Key West also made the list. Here's the full global ranking:
