Musha Cay, The Bahamas

$57,000 per day

Musha Cay and the Islands of Copperfield Bay is a chain of 11 islands in the Bahamas with 700 acres of tropical forests and private beaches with crystal-clear turquoise waters. All of them are owned by famous illusionist David Copperfield who bought these islands for a whopping $56 million in 2006. He then developed 150 acres of a beautiful island now known as Musha Cay with an extra $40 million.

Musha Cay is home to David Copperfield, but the island has been a go-to vacation spot of many billionaires, including Bill Gates and Oprah Winfrey. In 2007, Google founder Sergey Brin held a wedding on the island.

Once guests arrive at the private airstrip, they could choose from 5 guest houses. Not much is known about the specifics of each guest house, but Copperfield once said that he chose many of the antiques and treasures to finish off the interior design.

One of the modern amenities that stand out at Musha Cay is the outdoor theater with a massive screen and several beach-side daybeds for maximum relaxation. There is also an air-conditioned gym, a full-sized lighted tennis court, championship billiards table, and more.

How Much?

Daily rate at Musha Cay starts at $57,000 for 12 to 24 people. This rate includes all meals and drinks, but other activities such as diving, fireworks show, custom treasure hunt, or deep-sea fishing add up to the cost. Each group of guests has the island all to themselves, since no other guests will be entertained at the same time. However, there is a minimum stay of 5 nights, so that adds up to $285,000 quick.
