12 of the best private islands to rent around the world

Satellite Island Tasmania

Satellite Island


It can be tough to tear yourself away from your superyacht even for just one night, but with the luxurious accommodation found on some private islands, it can be worth it.

Round-the-clock service, perfectly prepared local cuisine and some of the best beaches in the world to share with only your nearest and dearest — we are certain that dropping anchor and tendering out to your very own spot of paradise will be the ultimate addition to your luxury yacht vacation.

1. Satellite Island, Tasmania

Originally bought by reclusive writer, poet and painter Ian Alstergren in the 1960s, Satellite Island is a rugged spot tucked into the south of Tasmania alongside Bruny Island. Wild and picturesque, this 34 hectare paradise is the perfect rural getaway.

Rates: To hire the entire island exclusively, midweek rates begin at $1,450 per night for two guests with a minimum stay of two nights. Additional guests can be added for $250 per person per night.

While you're there: Guests can spend their days exploring the various walking trails around the island, head out into the surrounding waters atop kayaks to see the island from the sea or even go diving for abalone, urchin and mussels. Additionally, guests can go fishing in the afternoon before heading up to the top of the island for a bonfire while watching the sunset.

Ensure your staff have stocked up in Hobart with ingredients for your favourite meals and dine under the stars out on the deck or on the beach with a campfire — don't forget the Tasmanian wine and freshly caught seafood from the day's adventures.

Those who fancy exploring further afield can travel over to Bruny Island to visit the winery, take a private air tour or go on a nature safari.

Getting there: Those exploring Tasmania on a superyacht can either cruise south from Hobart and anchor off the island, or moor up in Elizabeth Street Pier in Hobart and travel by private car or helicopter.
