Necker Island, British Virgin Islands owned by Sir Richard Branson

Necker Island, British Virgin Islands Owned By Sir Richard Branson

The island is available for weddings, relaxation breaks, sports vacations and even complete rentals for any purpose. One of the high profile recent guests is Larry Page, Google's billionaire co-founder, who married his girlfriend, Lucy Southworth, on the island in early December 2007. Page rented a majority of Virgin Gorda as well, as Necker was far too small to fit his 600+ guest party.
Privacy
Although the land on the island is entirely privately owned, under British Virgin Islands law, all beaches up to the high water mark are crown land, and are open to the public. In practice, the security personnel which accompany guests to Necker Island are known for making it difficult for ordinary members of the public to enjoy the beaches, particularly when high profile guests are in residence. On one of the occasions when the late Princess Diana stayed at the resort, security personnel kept a 150 metre perimeter around the island, within which the public were excluded.
