British Virgin Islands
Necker Island is situated in the British Virgin Islands to the east of Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. The closest international airport is on Tortola (Beef Island – airport code EIS) which is a 35-minute flight from San Juan in Puerto Rico and a 1 hour 20 minute flight from Antigua. It is possible to fly to the British Virgin Islands via many parts of the Caribbean, with the most popular routes being via San Juan, Antigua and St. Thomas.
All our rates include return launch transfers to and from Beef Island Airport on Virgin Tortola, and the journey takes roughly 25 minutes. Once you reach the island you’ll be welcomed with a glass of champagne, or ‘Necker water’ as it’s known! If you’re making your way to the island independently the options are below and we can firm up the details once your booking is confirmed.
Fixed wing aircraft are not able to land on Necker Island, however private aircraft can land at Beef Island and Virgin Gorda (depending on aircraft size) to then transfer by boat or helicopter to Necker.
Arriving by yacht
It is also possible to anchor a yacht off Necker if guests are going to be sailing in the area.
Necker has a helipad just a short distance from the Great House, but please note that helicopters cannot fly after dark in the British Virgin Islands except in emergencies, as customs must be open to clear the flight. It is possible to fly via helicopter from Virgin Tortola, Virgin Gorda, St. Thomas, San Juan and many other neighbouring islands.
