One city in Ontario has been named one of the 25 Emerging Destinations in the World.
Tripadvisor has published its annual Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards for 2021, covering the most popular hotels, restaurants and destinations around the world.
The quaint town of Tobermory, Ontario has earned a spot on the travel company’s list of the world’s leading up and coming destinations.
“Tobermory is a place like no other and is hailed as the ‘Diving Capital of Canada’,” wrote Tripadvisor.
“The city on the lake is known for its crystal clear turquoise water, which offers the perfect lens to explore the area’s 20+ shipwrecks. Those looking for adventures on land should visit the Bruce Peninsula National Park. “
The scenic trails are popular with hikers and provide access to the Grotto – a stunning sea cave with an underwater tunnel that leads into the clear blue waters of Georgian Bay.
Tobermory ranks 22nd on the list of emerging travel destinations just above Alexandria, Egypt, and just below Miyakojima, Japan.
First place went to the Caribbean island of Martinique with its black sand beaches and rainforests.
“Savvy travelers used their time at home to plan trips to these under-the-radar destinations,” Tripadvisor wrote of the list.
“[They’re] Places where you can leave the crowds behind, explore and connect. “
The Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards are based on millions of reviews and opinions from real travelers. You are the “highest honor that Tripadvisor awards”.
