Islands Worth Flying Private To
- Published on April 3, 2019
Flying private is an experience in and of itself, but the luxury of flying private to a hard-to-reach island is incomparable. Private islands offer a true escape from the onslaught of daily living. The journey begins from the moment you board your private charter jet and zip down the runway to touching down on one of these stunning islands.
Fregate Island Private, Seychelles
The Fregate Island Private is environmentally-minded, offering the best in luxury while caring for the ecosystem of the 2.4 km private island in Seychelles. Wander around one of the seven beaches and enjoy the company of some of the island’s population of 3,000 giant tortoises who roam freely about the island. The island flaunts sixteen beautiful and secluded villas for guests, offering a chance to socialize at the island’s Fregate House with its restaurant, pools, bar, and more.
Travel to Fregate Island Private includes a flight to Seychelles and a helicopter transfer to the island.
Tetiaroa, French Polynesia
Relax amongst the white sand beaches and turquoise waters of French Polynesia’s private island of Tetiaroa. The Brando, an eco-friendly resort, provides an all-inclusive luxury resort experience for visitors of the islands of Tahiti. Tetiaroa is a small island that sits alongside a three-mile-wide lagoon. Other nearby islands are all privately owned and available exclusively to resort guests and visiting scientists. Guests who are interested in the ecosystem of the island can ask to visit the island’s eco-station to learn about the research of sustainable interdependence.
Travel requires a flight to Tahiti Faaa airport in Papeete and then a small jet or helicopter transfer to the island to Tetiaroa.
Sveti Stefan, Montenegro
The tiny islet of Sveti Stefan, part of the small European country of Montenegro, is connected to the mainland by a narrow isthmus and offers stunning sea views and cobbled lanes, reminiscent of its fishing village days. Through detailed restoration, the islet now hosts Aman Sveti Stefan, a charming 5-star resort surrounded by 800 olive trees with a pink sand coastline and jagged cliffs. The stunning islet boasts unrivaled natural beauty alongside 15th-century history and a former royal residence. Enjoy the resort’s luxuries or meander the natural beauties of the land.
Travel to the nearest airport in Tivat before arriving in Sveti Stefan.
Norman’s Cay, The Bahamas
Once a drug operation headquarters, Norman’s Cay is part of a chain of islands south and east of Nassau in the Bahamas. Other than reaching the island by boat, a private jet is the only other way to visit the island. One of the main attractions on the island is a plane wreck from the ’70s that can be explored in the shallows of the ocean. It is said to have been a part of a drug-running operation run by Carlos Lehder that ended around 1982. In juxtaposition with the drug smuggling history, the serene beaches and rich vegetation make this island paradise feel like a tranquil escape. Choose from a number of options for your resort experience.
Travel requires a private jet or a water shuttle from the Nassau Airport.
