There are indulgent vacations many of us can only dream about, like a sojourn to a hidden island paradise or 24/7 pampering at a luxurious getaway. For billionaires, however, these indulgent treats are well within their reach.

See, the richest don’t just vacation anywhere. They have their favorite spots for some R&R. Below, we list 10 of them.

1. Richard Branson’s Necker Island

Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin business empire and investment group, owns Necker Island located in the British Virgin Islands. The 74-acre property is a preferred vacation destination by a lot of the rich and famous. Many lavish weddings and birthday parties have been held there. It’s also perfect for intimate affairs as the place only accommodates about 28 guests at a time.

2. Cottar’s 1920s Camp and Cottar’s Homestead

Musha Cay also has a number of attractions, including an arcade, a drive-in movie theater, a treasure hunt (with real treasure!), and a laser tag arena.

4. The Hamptons’ Billionaire Lane

This is where billionaires build their vacation homes. At The Hamptons on the fork of Long Island, New York, the rich can take a break without going too far from their work. On Meadow Lane in Southampton, you can find the most number of billionaire estates in the area, with properties owned by the likes of David Koch, Calvin Klein, and Gerald J. Ford, to name a few.
