But in recent years it has attracted the attention of technical billionaires who are turning the tropical enclave into an exclusive playground for you.

Richard Branson, who injected £ 10 million for the island in 2007, is leading a revision of the once undeveloped anchor point by building luxurious mansions that are being demolished by the next generation of moguls.

The brains behind some of Silicon Valley's most lucrative brands, such as Bebo and InfoSpace, are ready to move to their vast estates later this year – selling for at least £ 12 million.

Moskito, which extends for 125 hectares and is located in front of the British Virgin Islands, has seen construction work begin on 10 plots that will house the super-rich, according to the Sunday Times.

One of the most famous names that joins what is already the & # 39; the most exclusive homeowners association in the world & # 39; is mentioned, is the British social media tycoon Michael Birch.

Birch, which is worth a dazzling £ 315 million, already has an impressive possession in Silicon Valley.

The 49-year-old entrepreneur sold Bebo for £ 670 million before he and his wife Xochi founded a chain or private member clubs.

His last known purchase was a 17th century monumental pub in Devon that opened in January.

The Virgin billionaire also owns the nearby island of Necker, which is considered one of the jewels in the company's real estate portfolio.

In September 2017, Hurricane Irma struck the 74-hectare enclave and demolished many of its buildings.

When the extent of the damage became clear, Branson said: & I have never seen anything like this hurricane.

& # 39; Necker and the entire area have been completely and completely destroyed. & # 39;

Branson's step to transform Moskito into a playground for the rich reflects the development of the neighboring Caribbean island of Mustique by British aristocrat Colin Tennant, 3rd Baron Glenconner.

In 1958 he bought the island of Grenadines for £ 45,000 and used it to entertain the higher regions of high society, including Princess Margaret.

In more recent times, a series of celebrities flocked to the enclave where they built luxury mansions.

Sir Mick Jagger and David Bowie are among the stars that have owned houses on Mustique.

Moskito is surrounded by turquoise Caribbean waters, the area is perfect for water sports such as kite surfing, kayaking, paddleboarding, windsurfing, sailing and snorkeling.

In 2017, former President Barack Obama was hosted by Richard Branson and he learned kite surfing.

The island is home to ring-tailed lemurs that Branson introduced from zoos in Sweden, Canada and South Africa.

The entrepreneur has also moved a number of endangered iguanas from his famous Necker Island to Moskito.
