Looking For Your Own Island?
The Daily Mail UK has a great story about private islands you can buy – if you can afford them!
Imagine living like this – on your own exotic island – all you need is some money and a bit of wanderlust!
As The Daily Mail UK reports:
“These are the perfect properties on which to live out your castaway fantasies – private islands for sale in some of the world’s most exotic locations, from dreamy spits of sand in the Maldives to tree-lined chunks of land in the South Pacific. They are listed by Private Islands Inc and all come decked out with luxury accommodation, with other perks ranging from helicopter landing pads to private beaches and boat docks.”
