5. Tristan de Cunha, Southern Atlantic Ocean
With a population numbering around 275, Tristan de Cunha is one of the most isolated inhabited islands on earth. It’s so isolated, in fact, that the island has only had television for 10 years!†Tracing their roots to 15 emigres from Europe and the United States, the island’s people share only seven last names. All of the families are farmers, and most workers also work for the local government or the lobster factory.†Like St. Helena, Tristan de Cunha can only be reached by ship.
