Men's website has come up with a list of its Top 10 Luxury Islands. This list is not endorsed by Reuters.

1. Musha Cay, Exuma Cays

You'll have to be friendly with magician and owner David Copperfield to visit, but once you've arrived you'll never want to leave. Comprising four private islands, 85 miles southeast of Nassau in the Bahamas, the mini-archipelago offers some of the best diving anywhere.

2. Mustique, West Indies

There's a good reason rock stars and royal family members jet across the globe to vacation on the private island of Mustique. Spread across 1,400 acres of tropical paradise with aquamarine surf and pristine white beaches, island operator the Mustique Company allows only a select group of people to stay.

3. Turtle Island, Fiji

With more than 500,000 trees planted over 30 years by its entrepreneurial owner Richard Evanson, Turtle Island has dozens of private beaches and a stunning resort comprising 14 eco-friendly villas. The Blue Lagoon, the 1970s film starring Brooke Shields, was filmed here.
