  1. love that website, i read that many islands in French Polynesia (the cheapest ones on there) are inexpensive due to many nuclear tests they have run under sea in the area… so watch out!

  2. Another great resource for private islands is Vladi Private Islands. I believe they are the largest island brokerage house in the world. Only issue I have had with them is since they are located in Germany, they can be difficult corresponding with.

  3. I have been enjoying browsing that site for years! I saw one on there a few years ago and it was an amazing deal for $750,000, but I had no idea how to go about buying an island and it would have taken all my available cash, so I just kept watching. Not that much later they found fresh water on it and it jumped to $2.5 million. Oh well. At least there are a bunch of really affordable ones for when I decide to go for it.
