What do you get on a private island for $37,000 a night? Things like dinner on a sandbar and drinks on a yacht. That’s what life on the Forbes 400 list is like. So break out the fancy luggage and let’s head to three exclusive island getaways.
Musha Cay in the southern Bahamas is owned by David Copperfield — he owns 11 islands in what he calls “Copperfield Bay.” For $37,000 a night, there’s everything from a mansion to beach bungalows to an outdoor movie theater to a pool hall.
Calivigny Island in the West Indies is a five-minute boat ride from Grenada. For $15,000 a night you’ll get six sandy beaches, two private chefs, a yacht, and five residences, all in a magnificent Caribbean setting.
Not a fan of the beach? There’s a private island in northern New York waiting for you. The centerpiece of the island is an antique-filled mansion with four furnished porches, a grand dining room, and magnificent views of the river. It’s a veritable bargain at $500 a night.
