Necker Island Zip Line lunch with Richard Branson

This has been a crazy day on Richard Branson’s Necker Island! I had lunch with Richard, participated in non-stop activities from morning to night, and was lucky to survive a pedal paddle-boarding adventure.

As usual this week, I’m too busy having fun to write much, so I’ll let the videos tell the story…

Zip Lining to lunch with Richard Branson

Turtle Beach

Pedal Paddle-Boarding Adventure.

Background

My wife and I are currently enjoying a 1 week vacation on Sir Richard Branson’s private island: Necker Island.  The usual price for a Celebration Week* on the island is just north of $30,000.  Instead, we paid 1.2 million Virgin Atlantic miles.  For additional background, please see “Considering the 1.2 million mile Necker Island challenge,” and “Days away from Necker Island.”

* The island is normally hired exclusively for up to 34 guests sharing 17 bedrooms on an all- inclusive basis. Rates start from $78,000 per night ($2,294 per person per night). It can also be shared with others during Celebration Weeks; these are held several times each year and allow guests to book individual rooms as opposed to hiring the entire island. Prices for Celebration Weeks start from $30,000 for a 7 night stay.

I am so enjoying your blog posts, Greg and what a good sport you are sharing your mishaps. I just love the smile on your face in nearly every video. So glad you’re sharing the experience with us, thank you! It’s so fun I dragged my husband into it too and he’s enjoying it as well!:)

Thanks again for sharing all your adventures. Been enjoying the new posts on Necker Island this week. So all the activities you’ve been able to take advantage of (scuba) are FREE?
Looks like guests have activities planned for them each day? That’s so great!

I love these posts, and am eagerly awaiting the next! They are really genuine and unpretentious, (unlike another points dude blogger we know). Have fun, and show that peddle-board who’s boss!

Great stuff, Greg. I’m normally not a big fan of islands but I love being in a confined environment with a small group who share the excitement of being there, which seems to be the case here. Enjoy!

A bit late Greg
enjoyed your posts, pictures and videos. The best picture of course is how Richard Branson felt about the miles and points hobby
