St Helena, a remote island with a small economy, presents a unique opportunity for high net worth immigrant investors seeking tranquility and exclusivity. Its nascent tourism sector offers potential following the opening of its first airport. Real estate options are limited but growing. Investors can enjoy a peaceful lifestyle, rich natural beauty, and a tight-knit community, but must consider the island’s isolation and limited infrastructure when considering a second residence.
