In 2006, world-famous illusionist David Copperfield reportedly spent $50 million on a private island called Musha Cay in the southern Bahamas.

After five years and $40 million worth of remodeling work, Copperfield completed what he calls the “most magical vacation destination in the world.” He also acquired 10 additional islands nearby, completing an archipelago now known as the Islands of Copperfield Bay.

Sergey Brin married now ex-wife Anne Wojcicki on Musha Cay, and Oprah Winfrey, Bill Gates, and Johnny Depp have all vacationed there.

Musha Cay can also be booked by anyone through HomeAway for a whopping $57,000 a night.

With a slew of amenities, including an outdoor theater, a private speedboat, and beach-side daybeds, Musha Cay accommodates those seeking both relaxation and adventure.

Welcome to 700 acres of pure paradise in the Exuma Cay islands, south of Nassau in the Bahamas.

 

There are five separate homes situated around Musha Cay, which can accommodate up to 24 guests in total.

 

The listing describes the architectural style as English colonial with a tropical flair. High ceilings and mahogany wood terraces are common features.

 

Musha Cay is the main island, one of 11 owned by Copperfield. In total, the Islands of Copperfield Bay have 40 private beaches.

 

You can dine in the 2,200 square-foot Balinese Beach Pavilion.

 

The beach makes for a more sophisticated setting by night. The dock is lit only by torches, the setting sun, and rising moon.

 

Remaining active is easy with access to bikes, a gym, and a lighted championship tennis court. There’s also table tennis if you’re not looking to break a sweat.

 

Explore the waters on a 28-foot Nautilus Rib Catamaran, a 23-foot jet boat, Boston Whalers, sailboats, paddle boards, or jet skis, which are all included.

 

To end the night, sprawl out on a comfy lounge chair with an after-dinner drink and a movie at Dave’s Drive-In.
