Former President Barack and Michelle Obama have arrived in the British Virgin Islands after jetting to the Caribbean on Richard Branson’s plane for a MUCH DESERVED VACATION!
The former first couple posed with staff at Terrence B. Lettsome International Airport, the islands’ main airport, on Monday night after a flight from California.
A photograph of the pair with their arms stretched around immigration officials and the local police commissioner appeared on social media after their quiet arrival. They were then whisked away in a waiting motorcade to be taken to a nearby boat to complete their journey to Branson’s private retreat, Necker Island.
Necker Island, a 74-acre island which holds about 30 guests, is north of Virgin Gorda and is about a 15- to 20-minute sail from Beef Island. Branson bought the island in 1983 for $180,000. Rates are currently going around $42,000 per night. A villa can be had for $27,000 for a week.
Take a look!
