The Four Most Exclusive Private Islands in the World

The Four Most Exclusive Private Islands in the World

There are few luxury travel destinations that can even come close to the experience of having your own private paradise island. Strictly reserved for the elite traveler, private islands represent the height of exclusivity and offer a level of immersion into nature which is unmatched by any resort or hotel.

Private islands often have picture-perfect white-sand beaches and the ever-present turquoise ocean. Their ultra low-density constructions allow their natural surroundings the opportunity to breathe.

Not only that, private islands are often all-inclusive, full-service destinations with excellent amenities and facilities. Shall we take a look at the four most exclusive private islands in the world?

North Island - Seychelles

North Island is the tropical destination of choice for royal families and Hollywood A-Listers. The British royal family’s Prince William and Kate Middleton had their honeymoon here.
