This Caribbean destination is a favorite among celebrities and is home to stunning beaches and private villas.
The small island of Mustique, privately owned by The Mustique Company, is part of the Caribbean state of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and is one of the favorite destinations of the rich and famous. The whole island stretches for only 5.7 km, and the population is only 500 people. These two numbers in combination with private property are an excellent guarantee of privacy, which is why the world’s stars are happy to choose Mustique for the holidays.
There are 75 glamorous villas spread across the island. The villas have two to 10 bedrooms and boast all conceivable amenities. Each villa has at least three employees, including a private chef. There are many stars like Mick Jagger and Bryan Adams who own villas on this island today. Duke and Duchess of Cambridge together with their then two-year-old son, Prince George, used to come here to take a break from everyday responsibilities. Villa Aurora, where a weekly holiday costs a staggering 23000 dollars, was their residence.
Although there is a general perception that everyone who resides on the island has a certain status and that many belong to the highest social class, Mustique is not a place to brag. Instead, this is an ideal place to escape from the phone, always perfect hairstyles and wardrobe. At this place, guests ride in outdoor vehicles and frolic in the Caribbean. From the dress code to the restaurant and the aesthetics, everything is kept to a minimum.

The Mustique is proud of the level of privacy it can offer its guests, which is one of the reasons why this island has become an escape for celebrities, but also members of the British royal family. Namely, the paparazzi are practically denied access here due to the strict conditions of entering the island, and the security patrols the coast 24 hours a day. Like most Caribbean islands, December through April is the peak season for Mustique, as visitors from Europe and the U.S. trade in winter for warmer temperatures.
