Top private island resort: Tagomago


Whether you’re looking to leave modern technology behind, be at one with nature, or relax on your own empty beach, there’s a private island haven for every type of traveler. This is our favorite one in Spain.

Tagomago is a tiny rocky outcrop 900 meters off Ibiza has plenty of the White Isle magic without any of the drawbacks. With just one large mansion on the site, you have to take the island – which includes your own beach bar and lighthouse – in its entirety. Some guests choose to explore the walking paths that criss-cross the island; others go for something more debauched. Either way, the high level of privacy explains why it’s popular with celebrities looking to escape prying eyes.

Standout service A staff ratio of nearly 1:1, and an anything goes attitude – past requests have included a private T’ai Chi instructor and an in-house disco with one of Ibiza’s best DJs.

Special amenities A selection of “toys”, including a Mangusta 108 yacht (from $6,795 a day) and a helicopter are at guests’ disposal. There’s a mooring for those with their own yacht.

Number of rooms Five doubles, all with sleek, contemporary style. Room to book The red bedroom (538 sq ft) has the best views over the pool, lighthouse and to Ibiza.

Who’s slept there Cristiano Ronaldo; Ronnie Wood; Jade Jagger.
