Fancy a magic-imbued tropical getaway?
David Copperfield—the man who made the Statue of Liberty disappear and escaped from Alcatraz—has an even bigger secret up his sleeve: a wild, magical mini-archipelago in the Bahamas, replete with a fountain of youth, a secret underground city, and a treasure hunt bearing pirate booty. And it can all be yours for an exorbitant fee.
In 2006, the famed magician bought the 100-acre island of Musha Cay and its surrounding chain for $50 million, and with $40 million and five years of remodeling, made it into what he’s dubbed “the most magical vacation destination in the world.” Copperfield found the island after apparently drawing crisscrossing lines between Easter Island and Stonehenge, and the Pyramid of Giza and the Pyramid of the Sun in the Yucatan, and determining the exact spot at which the two intersected. The main resort island is actually one of 11 islands, all owned by the illusionist, in what’s been named Copperfield Bay. The others boast names like Forbidden Island, Enchanted Island, Secret Cay, and Imagine Island—incorporating 40 secluded beaches in all.
