🏝️ Desert Island


Uninhabited Land, Island, Unknown, Unfamiliar, Deserted Island, Single Island

🏝️ Meaning: A circular piece of land, covered with light brown sand, floating on and surrounded by aqua-blue water, while a palm tree or a coconut tree sits on top of the island.

The 🏝️ Desert Island emoji signifies a juxtaposition between desert and water; dry and wet, heat and cold, death, and life. Since a desert island refers to a land that cannot be permanently habited by humans, it can signify a sense of unfamiliarity and the unknown.

How and When to Use the 🏝️ Desert Island Emoji

  • Many times, 🏝️ is mistaken for a beach, which is not wrong. But, it ain’t right either. It’s a desert island, which is very different from a beach. So, please refrain from using this emoji to suggest a beach.
  • However, you can use 🏝️ while sharing pictures and/or videos of islands, irrespective of whether it’s a desert island or not; it can be a personal picture from a vacation or even a repost of some awe-inspiring island photographs.
  • If you’re posting or reposting something specifically about a desert island, then you must use 🏝️ in the post captions.
  • You can also use 🏝️ while reposting or posting reels, videos, or even tutorials for drinks (both alcoholic and non) that have the word ‘island’ in it or are named after islands, like long island iced tea.
  • Although a desert island evokes a sense of unfamiliarity and unknownness, 🏝️ cannot be used to refer to such dark themes, given that it’s a bright emoji in itself.
