The Necker Island Point of Inaccessibility has to class as one of the most luxurious you’ll ever wish to visit.

The exact location of the Necker Island PIA is determined to be at:

  • Latitude: 18°31’33.0″N
  • Longitude: 64°21’31.2″W

These coordinates were calculated by Chris Brown in October 2019.

Getting to the Necker Island Pole

Date Visited: 19th October, 2019
Visited by: Sir Richard Branson & Chris Brown
Weather: 31 Celsius/88 Fahrenheit. Thundery.
Coordinates Achieved: N 18 31.555, W 64 21.522
Distance from Pole: Zero metres. Exact Pole achieved

As you might expect on a Virgin Limited Edition luxury property, even visiting the pole is a Five Star experience.

Fresh from watching England trounce Australia in the 2019 Rugby World Cup at the Beach House, we jumped in SRB’s private golf buggy and drove round to the Lemur enclosure (1 minute).

Next came a short clamber round a few cacti and slightly up the bank towards the Great House (2 minutes). Then some messing around with the GPS to find the exact point (30 seconds), and we were there!

Mission accomplished!
