When it comes to vacations, there is little less relaxing than a heavingly busy beach. You know the feeling: searching for a peaceful sun trap, only to have a herd of sunbathers follow you and park their towel close enough to yours that you can smell their sun cream and body odor. Of course, if beach-clad seclusion is your paradise of choice, then renting your own tropical island is ideal for you! Whether you go for the island where Bill and Melinda Gates spent their honeymoon, or the one frequented by Kate Moss, these luxuriously private retreats certainly don’t come cheap. So if – like the rest of us – you can’t afford the five digit price tag unless you win the lottery, you can at least fantasize about it! Dream away…
Sir Richard Branson bought Necker Islands when he was just 28-years-old and converted it to one of the most famous – and sought after – private paradise islands in the world. The tropical island spans over 74 acres: a tranquil gem of white beaches and lush greenery amidst turquoise waters. It’s also rich in fauna – pink flamingos and giant tortoises can be found roaming the beaches! Having hosted iconic figures including Nelson Mandela, Kate Moss, and Robert De Niro, Necker Island has every right to boast about its reputation. The place Branson calls his “favorite hideaway” can be hired from $78,000 per night for up to 34 guests – or just for one if you fancy footing the full bill.
