There are places on Earth where only the richest people in the world can go. One of these locations is Fisher Island. This is a place that is considered one of the most beautiful and safe places on the planet. A comfortable and luxurious oasis is under round-the-clock security protection, because here lives and has real estate in the possession of the largest number of billionaires per square meter. Fisher Island is a closed island, so you can get to it only by helicopter or yacht.
Why is the island so expensive?
On the territory of the well-groomed island grow orchids, shrubs, palm trees, snow-white sand from the Bahamas was specially brought to local beaches. If the inhabitants of the island do not want to swim in the ocean, they can go on vacation to artificial lakes dug in the middle of a paradise oasis. Exotic birds were brought to the island, which settled here and delight the locals with singing and their appearance.
The area of the man-made island of Fisher Island does not exceed one square kilometer, and it is located near the American city of Miami, Florida. On this territory are built luxury villas, a school, spas, a bank, multi-storey houses for millionaires, a hospital and other facilities that are necessary for a comfortable life. Residents of the island can not go to the "big land" to buy clothes, food, medicines or spend leisure time – Fisher Island has everything that everyone needs.
To become a resident of the most expensive island on Earth, it is not enough just to become the owner of a local home, the cost of which starts from 800 thousand dollars and reaches 10 million. The future islander also needs to purchase membership in a private club, which costs another $ 250,000. Each year, a resident of the island must pay $ 24,000 to the island's fund, which goes to additional expenses. If an islander wants to play golf, he must buy this right for a year for $ 5,000.
Residents of the island do not use either bank cards or cash - they have a special payment system in which the funds of the islanders are stored. When they make a purchase or use the service, the corresponding amount is debited from their personal account.
Who are the citizens of this place and who works on the island?
The staff on Fisher Island is recruited through a long and thorough selection. The personal files of employees are carefully studied, candidates pass exams and prove that they will be able to cope with the duties. All applicants for the position must be fluent in several languages. Selected workers begin to be taught how to work with even the most capricious and sophisticated inhabitants of the island, catering to all their requests and desires.
On the territory of the island, in addition to the entertainment part of the infrastructure and the necessary shops, there is a security service and a fire station. The entire area of the oasis is under the control of employees who ensure the comfort and safety of residents. If a person is not a resident of the island, access to the territory is prohibited. To get here to relatives or friends of the islanders, they need to obtain a documented permit from the security service in advance. If a guest of the island decides to stay overnight in a local hotel, he will have to pay $ 1500 for the simplest room.
There are representatives of 50 countries of the planet on the island, but the main population are citizens of Great Britain and the United States of America. All of them are either multimillionaires or billionaires. To move around the island, residents use only electric transport - gasoline cars are prohibited here so that the air remains clean.
