The World’s Best Islands – For Sale! You Can Own A Piece Of Paradise! Island Wanderlust!

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.”

Here is an example of one of the islands featured in their terrific story:

Move Onto Iguana Island!

Yes, you can buy Iguana Island, which is a volcanic island 12 miles off the coast of Bluefields, Nicaragua.

As the Daily Mail reports:

“This five-acre retreat, cloaked in coconut palms and banana trees for maximum privacy, includes a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with wraparound porch, dining room, bar and living area, plus additional accommodation for staff on the other side of the island.”

Closer to home, the article showcases islands off the coast of Canada, and one right offshore in Florida:

Yes, Crescent Island is a four-acre strip of land in Florida that features one self-contained ‘Old Florida’ style house with a boat dock, a private beach and wooded forest as well!

Thanks to The Daily Mail UK for this great look at some amazing places to live – see all the rest at their website here:

I have a bit of wanderlust when it comes to tropical islands like this:

How could you not? Well, I have read several books about “island paradise” and it’s a bit more complicated than that – as this book shows:

A young Teacher spent a year on a microscopic south seas island, and what an adventure it was! Read all about it here:

One of my favorite Authors is Lucy Irvine, who wrote about her year on a deserted island:

She followed up this amazing adventure with a sequel called “Faraway” that detailed another year in the south seas:

These are two incredible travel memoirs, and you can read more about them here:

  1. Nice post and pretty pictures. I think in theory it sounds like fun, but the novelty would wear off and I’d get island fever. Not to mention the bugs. I’d feel trapped. Whew! I saved myself millions of dollars…

  2. I used to imagine living untroubled on an island. But it would have to be somewhere with calm seas, or I would get seasick on the boat trips back and forth. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
