Musha Cay is one of the world’s most exotic and expensive private islands, providing the ultimate getaway and total relaxation in complete isolation from the rest of the world. 150 acres of unspoiled tropical surroundings, along with the adjacent 500 acre island of Rutter Cut Cay, its white sandy beaches, crystal-clear turquoise waters and its lavish accommodation are what makes this one of the world’s ultimate destinations.
Owned by illusionist David Copperfield, the island is located in the Exuma Chain in the southern Bahamas and is a 40-minute flight from Miami or a three-hour flight from New York or Chicago to neighbouring Mosstown, Great Exuma. From Great Exuma you catch a charter plane for a 15 minute flight to Musha’s very own 2,200-foot private runway to arrive at this supreme destination.
This very exclusive luxury private island has seen some of the world’s wealthiest and most famous taking up the opportunity to spend time there to get away. The lush green surroundings, ultramodern outdoor movie theatre and exquisite accommodations, plus of course the private beaches, also aid in making it one of the world’s ultimate getaways, for those who can afford it, of course. The architecture throughout the various accommodations displays a truly Bahamian colonial style with traditional island materials used to create an authentic Caribbean feel.
Rates are at around $37,500 per day, for up to 12 people, for a 4-night minimum stay, and with this you’ll get use of the island, a staff of thirty-plus (including award-winning European chefs and massage therapists), satellite TV, use of their modern business centre, the 10,000 square-foot manor house on the cliff, the secluded thatched roof beach-house, or one of the two guest villas, all of which have access to their own private beaches.
This island has everything you could dream of, from open-air oceanfront dining at the stunning Balinese Beach Pavilion, cosy beachfront gazebos, indoor and outdoor beachfront bars, heated pools (including a lagoon-style pool), and perfect beaches, including the legendary 2-mile sandbar called “Heaven on Earth”.
Outdoor activities are always available with year-round perfect temperatures and weather, and activities include tennis, training at a beachfront fitness centre, touring in one of the five boats, sail-boating, wind surfing, waterskiing, snorkelling and bone fishing.
This is certainly one of the world’s best and most exclusive luxury getaways, one a few fortunate can make their holiday destination…
