The Islands On The Air (IOTA) program is a excellent way to polish your DX skills while finding some fascinating contacts along the way. Working a few IOTA stations over the next few weeks will give you some good practice for the 2017 ARRL Field Day event on 24-25 June 2017.
According to the Deutscher Amateur Radio Club, here are some of the islands worth putting in your logbook:
AS-137 (VY–Zhejiang Province North Group).
EU-127 (DL–Schleswig-Holstein State South Group).
NA-057 (HR–Bahia Island).
NA-083 (W4–Virginia State Group).
OC-73 (JD–Minami Torishima).
OC-267 (VK9–Coral Sea Islands Territory North).
SA-006 (HC8–Galapagos Islands).
