Teeming with wildlife and surrounded by pristine beaches, coral reefs and crystal clear turquoise water, Necker Island is arguably the most beautiful spot in the British Virgin Islands and every bit as idyllic as you would imagine, since it’s Sir Richard Branson’s private luxury island retreat.

He’s created a super-exclusive playground for a maximum of 34 adults and 6 children, with every whim taken care of by a team of dedicated staff. There are a number of Balinese-style luxury villas dotted around the island including Temple House, Richard’s private home, with its freshwater infinity pool, lush tropical gardens, freestanding marble bath with breath-taking views out to sea.

Some of the villas are perched up on the cliff-top making the most of the sea breezes and some are nestled in the middle of the island offering wonderful seclusion, expansive views and a large private pool.

As a guest at Necker Island, you’ll find plenty to keep you entertained. There is a full compliment of watersports toys down on the beach including a trampoline floating on the sparkling lagoon. The stunning turquoise waters that surround the island offer the perfect place for a spot of snorkelling and scuba diving too. Or if you fancy venturing further afield why not charter Necker Belle for the day, Richard Branson’s very own super yacht. It also works well as additional guest accommodation, with four luxurious cabins to sleep up to eight guests.

Alternatively, for something more relaxing on the island, you can drop in to the island’s own spa for a soothing massage whilst gazing out over the sparkling water, or for something a little bit special why not take a scenic sunset cruise around the island.

Nature lovers will love spotting the lemurs, flamingos, giant tortoises and iguanas that call Necker Island their home – it truly is your very own private tropical paradise.

The 74-acre private island can be hired exclusively or on an individual room basis for selected weeks.

Necker Island is in the British Virgin Islands, about 10 minutes by the island’s private launch from Virgin Gorda and 30 minutes from Beef Island (Tortola). When you arrive at the port Necker’s friendly team will be there to welcome you before your short journey to the Island.

Virgin Gorda has its own small airport, or you can fly into Beef Island (Tortola) from San Juan in Puerto Rico (35 minutes), St. Thomas in Antigua (1 hour 20 minutes) or from Barbados (4 hours 15 minutes with stopover).

For an entertaining alternative to scheduled flights, why not charter a helicopter or seaplane and land directly at Necker Island (weather permitting).

It takes approximately 1.5 hours to walk from one end of the island to the other.

Children are very welcome at Necker Island and will love exploring the island, discovering the abundant wildlife and meeting the resident flamingos, lemurs, iguanas and giant turtles.

Little adventurer’s will love the thrill of taking the zip line down to Turtle Beach- is there a cooler way to arrive for a day of sandcastle making?
