33 Unique Island Instagram Captions for the Perfect Post

Whether you’re visiting Hawaii or just dreaming of island time, these island Instagram captions will make sure you have the most unique Instagram island captions for every post.

From the waves to the sand to the friends in bikinis, there are so many great ways to bring your island vacation (or life) into your Instagram, but really the island quotes for Instagram help you bring that extra layer of fun and depth to your post.

Don’t forget to include as many hashtags related to island as you can to reach other island lovers, and vary the island Instagram captions so you’re doing one long one one photo, and then a short and to-the point one next.

Another pro tip: use a waterproof camera (I recommend this one) to take your photos on the island and then upload to Instagram later on, as opposed to risking your phone falling into the ocean or the sand.

At the very least, make sure to get a waterproof contraption for your phone like this one.
