Extra-Special Anniversary Gift

If the international press is to be believed, David and Victoria Beckham will soon be joining the list of celebrity private island homeowners.

British tabloid newspaper The Daily Star on Sunday reports that the former footballer is on the search for an extra-special anniversary present for Victoria in order to mark their twenty-year anniversary later this year.

And indeed, how better to say “Happy Anniversary,” than a pristine private island hideaway?

According to the British press, Becks has so far narrowed his shortlist down to three stunning properties – all of which are located in the Caribbean.

As well as a more conventional villa located on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, Beckham is reported to have taken a closer look at two private islands in the Bahamas: Sandy Cay (Abacos) and Bird Cay (Berry Islands), both of which are listed with international island broker Vladi Private Islands.

Bird Cay, in particular, is said to have captured the footballer’s heart. The stunning 250-acre island is available for just USD 7 million, and boasts 4.75 miles of beaches, a stunning mansion and a further five cottages for guests or staff.

Private Island Fans

But is there any truth in the rumours? The jury’s out. On the one hand, it’s certainly true that the Beckhams are huge fans of the private island lifestyle.

The footballing/fashion dynasty a regular guests at swanky Maldives island resort One&Only Reethi Rah and have also been spotted in the Seychelles (North Island) and on Sir Richard Branson’s British Virgin Island retreat, Necker Island.

Perhaps, therefore, it’s not all that far-fetched to imagine that their next step would be to purchase a private island of their own? The Private Island News team will keep its ear to the ground and post any updates as they arise.
