Sir Richard Branson's 74 acre private island is unquestionably the most idyllic place in the British Virgin Islands. Necker Island is Sir Richard Branson's home and favourite hideaway. He first purchased the island in 1978 and it opened as a luxury retreat available for private hire in 1984. Necker Island is now part of Virgin Limited Edition, Richard's portfolio of unique retreats. There is a dedicated team of fabulous staff on island plus more than 200 flamingos who are all part of the Necker family! Visit the Necker Island website for all the details.
