Micronesia has confirmed only one case of Covid-19 to date. The Polynesian island of Samoa and the South Pacific island of Vanuatu have just three cases each.

Sounds like safe travel choices? There's just one problem — none are allowing in tourists.

Many islands that opened to tourists during the pandemic experienced rising coronavirus infection rates shortly thereafter.

But there are exceptions.  

The following destinations kept Covid rates low by imposing stringent protocols, which often include "vacation in place" requirements.

Though the small Caribbean island of Anguilla opened to international visitors in November, it has registered only 18 Covid-19 cases to date, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
