Why Necker Island Is The Ultimate Private Getaway

Never heard of Necker Island before? I’m not surprised! This place is about as private as it gets. It’s a 74-acre island located in the picturesque British Virgin Islands. It’s suitably nicknamed, “the ultimate private island.” That’s what millionaire Sir Richard Branson was going for when he developed the breathtaking land.

Today, Sir Branson is sharing his little piece of paradise with wealthy people from all around the world. With white sand and beautiful turquoise water, he is opening up the doors to his beach home and welcoming guests. After you see what this private island has to offer, you will definitely want to visit!

Guests can stay in the Great House, which features eight guest rooms. Each room has a balcony, king-size bed, private bathroom, and amazing view.
