Luxurious residences with apartments ranging from 340 sq.m. have been built on Fisher Island. and costing from $700 thousand to $20 million. Expensive? Well, this is Billionaire Island! Here are some more impressive numbers: the cost of educating a child in an island school is $26,000 per year.

Who are the inhabitants of the island?

About a thousand successful businessmen, well-known financiers, heads of large international corporations, media personalities, politicians, representatives of the sports elite, pop and movie stars live on Fisher Island. Moreover, less than half of the island residences belong to the Americans, the rest are owned by people from 45 countries of the world. One third of them live here permanently.

Russians... How could it be without them?

About 15% of the islanders have Russian citizenship or Russian roots. In their homeland, they have to hide from "mere mortals" behind the tinted windows of armored vehicles and move around accompanied by a company of personal guards. On the island, the Russian elite obeys the general rule: whoever you are and whatever your fortune, you must be here under your true name and not hide behind front companies and pseudonyms. This rule is oh so not liked by officials from Russia who have property on Fisher Island. But there is nowhere to go: if you want to live on the island, please follow its rules.

According to Forbes, the average net worth of the island's residents is $57 million.

Where is it located Fisher Island and how to get there

Fisher Island is located in Florida, USA, in Miami Bay. It is separated from the "mainland" by only a few hundred meters of the sea, which can be overcome in a few minutes by boat or ferry. This privileged outpost deliberately emphasizes its status as an elite resort and detachment from the rest of Miami. Outsiders are not allowed here - their own security service, consisting of 50 armed men, patrols the island and its environs around the clock.

Just take it, and sail to Fisher Island without an invitation will not work. Everyone arriving here must tell the guards the password. If you, your friends or relatives are not on the list of club residents, then the road to Dream Island will be closed for you. Unless you rent a room in one of the island hotels, a night stay in which will cost you at least $1000. Be prepared for the fact that before you check in, the security service will arrange a captious check for you.

How to become a club member?

You will be required to pay regular membership fees in order to attend the club's events and entertainment venues. And this, for a moment, is $20,651 a year. Fisher Island homeowners donate $20,000 to $50,000 a year for a condominium, and also pay $22,890 to local community organizations. Impressive, isn't it?

Visiting Fisher Island is the dream of millions. And if you had the opportunity to visit Billionaire Island, would you take it? Do you think you would like the island or would you feel uncomfortable surrounded by someone else's luxury?
