Owning a private island in the Caribbean is, for some, the ultimate status symbol.
Whether a small cay, atoll or a larger isle, owning a Caribbean private island offers a degree of privacy and seclusion that simply can’t be found elsewhere.
While there are islands for sale across the Caribbean, with approximately 700 white sand beach-fringed islands dotted in turquoise waters, The Bahamas is one of the most popular destinations for buying a private island.
Johnny Depp owns one. Shakira has her own private island. Eddie Murphy has one too. David Copperfield has a string of eleven islands and cays – his very own archipelago.
So, if you’re thinking of buying your very own island sanctuary, here are 3 private islands for sale in The Bahamas which could be yours.
