Almost 27 years ago the U.S. was part of an invasion of the island of Grenada in order to free American medical students studying there. It was a good example of the wrong way to invade an island. For the right technique, look no further than Calivigny Island, just off the southern tip of Grenada. First of all, since there is nothing on Calivigny Island save the beach house and a bevy of caretakers, you can invade it whenever you wish and you needn't concern yourself with getting anyone off of it.
In fact, leaving could be the last thing on your mind. The beach house is set at the end of a pier that crosses a white sand beach. Or rather, perhaps it shouldn't even be called a house, seeing as it takes up nearly 108,000 square feet and has ten bedroom suites, each of them with its own entrance and bathroom. The rest of the island, 81 acres in all, serves as your private tropical garden.
When the Robinson-Crusoe-and-coconuts thing gets old, there's scuba diving on the coral reef, an underwater sculpture park, a spa, and a 24-hour private chef – because you'd be surprised how hungry you get in paradise. If you don't wish to expend any effort to effortlessly enjoy yourself, seven-day excursions to Calivigny Island are being arranged now by Pure Entertainment Group.
