Overview



Welcome to Necker Island, Sir Richard Branson's private island paradise in the British Virgin Islands. One of our guests said it best when he said that Necker is somewhere that can't be imitated, only appreciated! Necker can be hired exclusively and also during selected 'Celebration Weeks' when couples or singles can book individual rooms and share the island 'house party' style.

Its Caribbean location means that Necker's 74 acres are surrounded by beautiful turquoise waters, coral reefs and gorgeous sandy beaches.
The most convenient international airports to Necker are situated in Antigua, Puerto Rico (San Juan) and St. Thomas (USVI).

Whether this is your first or your fifth visit to Necker, there are a few things you should definitely not forget to bring with you. Your room on island will be stocked with some of the essentials, but we've put together a few helpful tips on what to pack.

With steady trade winds, warm turquoise waters, beautiful trails and two tennis courts Necker Island is a perfect play ground for any number of sports. Each morning at breakfast and again at lunch time one of the members of our team of water sports instructors and a tennis pro, will arrange the activities for the day to cater for your requests.

Necker is designed to be your own private hideaway - a place far from the stresses and strains of daily life where you dictate the pace and the mood. Whether your passion is suiting up and getting wet in the crystal clear water or relaxing with a book on a deserted beach, you'll be well catered for.

If you only want to visit with the immediate family, you can take the children on a Family Fun Celebration Week, designed specifically for families with children who do not wish to hire the entire island.
Windsurfing - We have a range of beginner, intermediate and advanced windsurfing kit, and offer instruction for all standards. Our Watersports instructors will prepare equipment so it's ready for use when required.

Waterskiing/Wakeboarding - The best ski area is on the back side of Prickly Pear Island, less than a 5 minute boat ride from Necker. We have beginner and advanced water-skis, wakeboards, kneeboards and offer high quality instruction for all these activities.
Surfing - During the winter months the BVIs get many great days for surfing and Josiah's Bay, on Tortola, is a friendly beach where there are excellent waves for competent surfers and beginners. These trips can be a full or half day and are always extremely good fun as well as a great way to see some of the BVIs.

Snorkelling - You will find snorkels and masks in your wardrobes and there are fins located on both Turtle beach and Main Beach. Both beaches offer excellent snorkeling depending upon weather conditions, so please check with a member of staff which is most suitable. For people wanting to venture further a field we will prepare our boats with fins, towels and a cooler to explore other underwater locations.
Kayaking - A number of kayaks and paddles are situated on main beach, available for guest use.

Paddlingboard – Otherwise known as 'stand up paddleboarding', this sport has taken the world by storm from the big waves of Hawaii to inland waterways of England. Necker has 8 paddleboards (10ft – 12ft long), and people of all shapes and sizes can have a go at this easy but fun watersport. It's also a great workout for the core and great for balance!

It is often possible to arrange Pilates, Scuba Diving, Bone Fishing and Deep Sea Fishing at an additional cost.
