We all love a beachy vacation, but the millionaires and billionaires on this list take that to a new extreme by owning their own private island. Why just rent the sun and surf when you can buy it? Owning your own private island is the ultimate status symbol of the rich and famous.

The ultra-rich, including CEOs of companies like Virgin Galactic, actors, supermodels, singers, and reality stars, have all snagged a piece of paradise by investing in their own private island. Though some bought their islands to develop into super luxurious resorts, most of the celebrities on this list bought their islands solely to kick back and relax.

1. Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt

Location: Petre, Lake Mahopac, New York

Purchased: $12.2 million*

Current Value: $13.45 million*

Superstar former couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt bought a romantic, heart-shaped island off the coast of New York. The Lake Mahopac home wasn’t hot on the market—it had been languishing there for five years before the famous pair picked it up.

Jolie, whose new movie, Those Who Wish Me Dead, just dropped at AMC and indie theaters everywhere, and Pitt paid $12.2 million for Petre and the home on it, which was designed by famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The main residence on Petra measures 5,000 square feet, and, to get there, the Jolie-Pitts take a fifteen-minute helicopter ride from NYC.

2. Johnny Depp

Location: Little Hall’s Pond Cay, Bahamas

Purchased: $3.6 million*

Current Value: $5.09 million*

The first Pirates of the Caribbean movie was a slam-dunk for Disney, and it has become one of the roles for which Johnny Depp is best-known. Apparently, during filming the swashbuckling pirate epic, Depp fell in love with the Bahamian island set.

He loved it so much that he paid $3.6 million for it. The Disney star nicknamed it “F*** Off Island,” because he intended for it to remain a super-private luxury estate. The forty-five-acre paradise boasts six beaches, solar-powered houses, and a lagoon lined with palm trees. Though Depp’s life hasn’t always been so smooth-sailing, he always has a tropical haven to return to.

3. Justin Bieber

Location: Ibiza, Spain

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $90,000/week*

Justin Bieber is one of the most famous pop stars in the world, and he vacations like one too, renting out a $90,000-per-week paradise in Ibiza, Spain. Ibiza has long been a hotspot for celebrities of all stripes, and Bieber, along with soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, takes his holidays by renting out Tagomago, an Ibizan island.

The island has its own private waiters and chefs, and you can reach Tagomago by helicopter or boat. Tagomago is just a five-minute boat ride from Ibiza’s famous parties. The mainstay on the island is a five-bedroom villa with a gym, Jacuzzi, sauna, saltwater swimming pool, and water sports equipment.

4. Julia Roberts

Location: The Bahamas

Purchased: $6 million*

Current Value: $6.5 million*

Though some millionaires on this list bought their private islands as a way to throw lavish parties for their also-famous friends, America’s Sweetheart, Julia Roberts, decided to purchase her Bahamas paradise as a private vacation location for her family. The details have been kept under wraps, but the island’s value is around $6 million.

Julia Roberts / The Bahamas @cvsimply / | ©taniavolobueva /

The Pretty Woman star has always been reticent about her private life (and who could blame her?), but what we do know about the island is that it’s probably very beautiful, surrounded by blue ocean waters, sandy beaches, and green forestry, like nearly every other island in the region.

5. Naomi Campbell

Location: Gulf of Gokova, Turkey

Purchased: $48-$50 million*

Current Value: $50-$60 million*

Supermodel Naomi Campbell has a net worth of the hundreds of millions, but if you think that’s impressive, you should see the net worth of her (former) boyfriend, Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin. Doronin did what Russian billionaires do best: spend money.

Naomi Campbell / Gulf of Gokova, Turkey @admagazinefr / | ©FeatureFlash Photo Agency /

He bought the Revlon spokesmodel a huge, twenty-five-room mansion for her birthday. The Horus Eye Eco-House is shaped like the Eye of Horus. In Egyptian mythology, the Eye of Horus symbolizes health, protection, and restoration. Located on Cleopatra Island in the Turkish Gulf of Gokova, the lavish mansion is energy, food, and water self-sufficient, relying on ingenious bioclimatic design to sustain itself.

6. Megan Fox

Location: Toluca Lake, California

Purchased: $3.3 million*

Current Value: $2.6 million*

Located in Toluca Lake, California, actress Megan Fox’s home was built in 1936, which is the second home she’s owned from that time period. The actress bought the property for $3.3 million in 2014, but she sold it in 2016 for $700,000 less than that.

Megan Fox @forbesmagazine / | ©DFree /

She also bought another home four years earlier in Los Feliz, California, also from 1936. She purchased it for nearly $3 million before selling it in favor of the picturesque Toluca Lake estate. Fox’s ranch-style Toluca home originally belonged to Bing Crosby as his carriage house. The mansion is seated on an acre of land.

7. Mel Gibson

Location: Mago Island, Fiji

Purchased: $15 million*

Current Value: $20.3 million*

Longtime Hollywood star Mel Gibson purchased Mago Island for $15 million in 2005. It had originally been owned by Tokyu, a Japanese corporation, which kept it pretty remote. There’s one lone airstrip on the island, and, though there’s a small, stone pier, there is no port.

Mel Gibson / Mago Island, Fiji @many_oneof / | ©Tinseltown /

It’s the perfect remote getaway for Gibson, though he will no doubt have to shell out a lot of money to get his island abode up and running. Mago, a volcanic island, is one of Fiji’s largest private islands, consisting of 8.5 square miles of land. Currently, the island is inhabited by just a few Indo-Fijan caretakers, who have left it undeveloped.

8. Taylor Swift

Location: Watch Hill, Rhode Island, USA

Purchased: $17.75 million*

Current Value: $20 million*

While Taylor Swift’s luxe property might not actually be a private island, the private Rhode Island mansion certainly has about as many perks as one. The massive home is 11,000 square feet and is situated directly on the beach, giving Swift unadulterated views of the Atlantic.

Taylor Swift's Rhode Island Mansion @Tinseltown / and @Jaquaveos Shuford /

The home is located in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, perfectly set between two beautiful beaches for easy access to everything the area has to offer. And if Swift is trying to duck the crowds, she can simply retire to the large swimming pool on the property.

9. John Wayne

Location: Taborcillo Island, Panama

Purchased: Unlisted

Current Value: $14 million*

Isla Taborcillo, also known as John Wayne Island in the media, is a tiny private island located twenty-five miles off the coast of Panama. Taborcillo was once owned by Western actor John Wayne, though it is currently owned by Ralph Hubner, an Austrian businessman and the founder of Who is Who, a publishing company.

John Wayne @LancsFM / | @vladiislands /

Taborcillo is lovely, and it’s not all island. It has been transformed into a resort-like paradise. It has a theme park, resort hotel, and is a tourist hotspot near Panama. A part of the island is a wildlife sanctuary, where birds like egrets, hummingbirds, and brown pelicans nest.

10. Rebel Wilson

Location: Tetiaroa, French Polynesia

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $2,400-$7,400 per night to stay*

Actress Rebel Wilson celebrated her forty-first birthday in style, vacationing at a private island in French Polynesia. The Australian comedian was celebrating her birthday belatedly, as the events of 2020 caused her to have to postpone the celebration. Her party included Pitch Perfect co-stars Brittany Snow and Anna Kenrick.

Rebel Wilson @ourkendrick /

The island in French Polynesia is a Hollywood staple, as it was owned by Marlon Brando. The legendary actor set up a resort there called “The Brando.” The Brando, located on Tetiaroa, was once a vacation spot for members of the Tahiti Royal Family. Now, the island is under a ninety-nine-year lease with Brando.

11. Lindsay Lohan

Location: Mykonos, Greece

Purchased: Unlisted

Current Value: $287 per day to visit Lohan Beach House*

Actress Lindsay Lohan has had quite a wild ride in her life. From being tabloid fodder to straightening her life out somewhat, the Mean Girls star still makes headlines from time to time. Her real estate ventures in Greece have been the biggest headline-makers as of late. In May of 2018, Lohan opened her own nightclub on Mykonos called the Lohan Beach House.

Lindsay Lohan @thelittlestore / | @CBSNews /

She then opened another beach club, this one located on Ialyssos Beach, Rhodes, which she called Lohan Beach House Rhodes. According to People, Lohan isn’t stopping there. She wants to buy an island in Greece, on which she’ll start her own private resort.

12. Oprah Winfrey

Location: Orcas Island, Washington

Purchased: $8.3 million*

Current Value: $14 million*

In July of 2021, Oprah Winfrey sold her longtime Washington residence, Orcas Island, for way more than the purchase price. She bought the home In 2018 for $8.3 million, and she sold it for $14 million. The island, also known as Madroneagle, gave her a nearly $6 million return on investment.

Oprah Winfrey @nchasewomack / ©©Everett Collection/

The forty-three-acre waterfront estate was impressive. Orcas Island itself is the largest of the Pacific Northwest’s San Juan Islands, and it is a popular place for people looking to see wildlife and be around nature. Hiking, whale watching, and beautiful sights are just three of the reasons to venture to Orcas Island. Though if you visit, Oprah will no longer be there.

13. Elon Musk

Location: Biak Island, Indonesia

Purchased: TBD

Current Value: Unknown

If you’ve been reading the tech headlines lately, then you’ve probably seen SpaceX, Elon Musk’s space travel company, a time or two. SpaceX is an ambitious project, as it wants humans to land on the moon. Indonesia wants to be a part of SpaceX’s future, and it offered up Biak Island to Musk as a base.

Elon Musk @mpower2013 / | @ocumedia /

Musk has yet to accept the proposal, but, already, the debate over Biak’s future is raging. Biak isn’t uninhabited, and many of the people who have been there for centuries are the Abrauw indigenous people, along with a dozen other ethnic peoples. Biak is home to 100,000 residents, and it is slightly larger than London.

14. Jeff Bezos

Location: Maui, Hawaii

Purchased: $78 million*

Current Value: $78 million*

Jeff Bezos is one of the richest people on the planet, so it’s no surprise that he owns a huge real estate portfolio. Bezos is known for buying up not just the real estate residence he plans to live in, but also the surrounding area for privacy reasons. Bezos recently purchased a tropical estate in Maui, a Hawaiian island, for $78 million.

Jeff Bezos @polandsir / | ©Spencer Platt / Getty Images

The 2021 purchase includes a spacious, fourteen-acre tropical paradise in La Perouse Bay. The estate is spread out enough that there are no neighbors, so Bezos doesn’t have to do his usual trick of buying up neighboring homes (like he did in D.C.).

15. Beyonce & Jay-Z

Location: Florida

Purchased: $20 million*

Current Value: $23.8 million*

When you think of a romantic gift, you probably picture chocolate, roses, and a heartwarming card. Multi-platinum rapper Jay-Z took romantic gift-giving to a whole new level when he purchased a private island for his wife, Beyonce.

Beyonce & Jay-Z / Florida @kcmcclanahan / | ©Featureflash Photo Agency /

The 12.5-acre island, located in the Florida Keys, was the rapper’s present to his wife for her twenty-ninth birthday in 2010. He totally outdid his present from 2009, a platinum-covered cellphone that cost $24,000. The Florida Keys hideaway is, as one tabloid called it, one of the most “extravagant celebrity gifts” of all time. Three years later, the music power-couple would buy another private island, this time in the Bahamas.

16. Orlando Bloom & Katy Perry

Location: Kauai, Hawaii

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $4,000 per week to stay*

Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry had some fun on their island vacation to Hawaii. In tow was their daughter, six-month-old Daisy Dove. The low-key vacation featured the couple playing on the beach with their daughter and exploring all that Hawaii had to offer.

Orlando Bloom & Katy Perry @Montecito Properties / | @infokpbr /

This is far from the pair’s first island vacation together. In August of 2021, they also went to the island of Capri, Italy, just one month before they journeyed to Kauai. The two have been engaged for a couple of years, and they seem happier than ever on their island vacations with their baby daughter.

17. Shakira

Location: Bonds Cay, Bahamas

Purchased: $16 million*

Current Value: $19.03 million*

Platinum-selling artist Shakira is the second half of the real estate partnership between her and Pink Floyd songwriter George Waters. The two bought Bonds Cay in 2011 for $16 million. The 550-acre island is part of the Caribbean’s Berry Islands, also known as the “Fish Bowl of the Bahamas.”

Shakira / Bonds Cay, Bahamas @Deathface666 /

So, what does Bond’s Cay look like now, ten years after the singers purchased it? It has kept pretty much all of its natural beauty, including elevations and turquoise water filled with coral reefs and fish. It draws in a lot of tourists who love exploring the island’s five beaches, three bays, multiple waterfalls, and mysterious lagoons.

18. David Copperfield

Location: Musha Cay, Bahamas

Purchased: $50 million*

Current Value: $90 million*

David Copperfield isn’t just a famous illusionist, he’s also a real estate developer, adding a nice second stream of income to his magical main profession. The musician paid $50 million in 2006 for Musha Cay, a private island located in the southern part of the Bahamas. Copperfield spent $40 million on renovations and remodeling until he completed what he said was the “most magical vacation destination” on earth.

David Copperfield / Musha Cay, Bahamas @lawcrossing / | ©s_bukley /

The magician didn’t stop there—he also bought ten neighboring islands, creating his own archipelago that is called the Islands of Copperfield Bay. To rent Musha Cay, you’ll have to pay a hefty $57,000 per night. Celebrities like Johnny Depp, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, and Sergey Brin have all vacationed at Musha Cay.

19. Larry Ellison

Location: Lanai, Hawaii

Purchased: $300 million*

Current Value: $346.53 million*

Larry Ellison is worth $101.9 billion, and the Oracle billionaire decided that he wanted to do something ecologically-beneficial with his money. He owns 98% of Lanai, a private island in Hawaii, which is home to just one town: Lanai City. The rest of Lanai is owned by the Hawaiian government and is home to a few private homes.

Larry Ellison / Lanai, Hawaii @tripadvisor / | ©s_bukley /

Ellison’s vision for Lanai is that of an environmentally-friendly dreamland. He bought his share of the island for $300 million in 2012, and he has spent $500 million since then renovating it. The “health utopia” is home to Sensei, Ellison’s wellness company. Sensei oversees solar-powered greenhouses and spas. Ellison called his stake in Lanai a “microcosm” for what he wants the world to be.

20. Steven Spielberg

Location: Madeira Archipelago, Portugal

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: Unknown

Hollywood legend Steven Spielberg has a net worth of $3.7 billion, thanks to his production and direction of movies like Jurassic Park, E.T., Schindler’s List, Jaws, and other blockbuster hits. The director is one of the most commercially-successful producers in the history of Hollywood, and he has a lot of money to spend, as a result.

Steven Spielberg / Madeira Archipelago, Portugal ©Bogatova Anastasia / | @DirectorStevenSpielberg /

Spielberg could afford a dozen private islands, but he is, so far, content with just a couple from Madeira, a Portuguese archipelago. Spielberg’s islands are uninhabited as of now, exciting fans who wonder if the sandy, sunny tropical paradises might be home to a film location in the future.

21. Gene Hackman

Location: San Juan Islands, Washington

Purchased: $2.54 million*

Current Value: $3.48 million*

Actor Gene Hackman has been in quite a few famous blockbusters, and, as a result, he has made enough money to buy a private island. In 2005, he and his wife purchased Fawn Island, a gorgeous hideaway located twenty minutes from Seattle, Washington.

Gene Hackman Island @ELLEDECOR / | ©Featureflash Photo Agency /

The 2.3-acre property is back on the market for nearly $3.5 million. In addition to the land, the island also has a 3,514-square-foot main house and a couple of guest houses. The San Juan Islands might not be as tropical as the Bahamas, but they are known for their whale-watching, forests, historical sites, and lively seaside towns like Friday Harbor.

22. Beatrice Borromeo

Location: Milan, Italy
Purchased: Unknown (13th Century)

Current Value: Unknown

To understand how Beatrice Borromeo’s family got so rich, you’d have to go back to the 14th century. In the 1300s, the Borromeos, a wealthy, noble family of Florentine origins, were given ownership of the Borromean Islands. They started to build elaborate gardens and homes on the islands, making them their own.

Beatrice Borromeo @GentleTrav / | ©Featureflash Photo Agency /

Now, the Borromeos still own the stunning northwestern Italian islands. The islands are fifty acres in total, and they bring in tons of tourists every year, as people love the picturesque setting. To get to the Borromean Islands, you have to take boats from smaller, shore-bound ports.

23. Lenny Kravitz

Location: New Providence, Bahamas (Baha Mar)

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $400/night*

Rocker Lenny Kravitz was born in the Bahamas, and he has nothing but love for his home nation. About his homeland, he said simply, “It’s my country,” describing it as a “magical place.” Kravitz partnered with the Bahamian tourism department on a new marketing campaign, saying he found it an “honor” to represent his country.

Lenny Kravitz @choicehotels / | @Jaguar PS /

Kravitz especially loves the family islands, especially Eleuthera. He helped design Baha Mar, one of the Bahamas’ most famous resorts. Baha Mar is a thousand-acre complex, which you can find on New Providence. The resort has all the highest-tech amenities, plus all of the sunny, sandy views you could want.

24. Aristotle Onassis

Location: Skorpios, Greece

Purchased: $12,500*

Current Value: $100 million*

Talk about a return on investment. Aristotle Onassis, the Greek shipping magnate who was Jackie O’s second husband after J.F.K., paid just $12,500 for Skorpios Island in 1963. Now, the island’s value is at least $100 million.

Aristotle Onassis @HorizonTravelGr / | ©Pieter Jongerhui /

Onassis might have spent less than $20K, but the improvements he made cost millions. He imported sand and tropical trees to create a paradise. He hosted glamorous parties there. Skorpios, located in the Ionian Sea off the western coast of Greece, became a bit of a playground for the wealthy and powerful. It was purchased by a Russian billionaire heiress in 2013.

25. Francis Ford Coppola

Location: Coral Caye, Belize

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $895/night*

Legendary film director Francis Ford Coppola added to his real estate portfolio when he purchased Coral Caye, an island off the coast of Belize. He already owns the Turtle Inn Resort on the coast, and Coral Caye is a tiny island that’s just a twenty-minute boat ride away.

Francis Ford Coppola - Island @FT / | ©Ron Adar /

Coppola, who also owns several hotels and a winery, once used the Belizean island as a getaway for Coppola family vacations. Now, he has decided to make it more commercial, renting out the two-acre resort for $895 per night. Coral Caye has two rustic cottages, and it can house up to twelve people.

26. Kylie Jenner

Location: Harbour Island, Bahamas

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $10,000 per night*

This one isn’t an “owned” private island so much as a lavish vacation retreat, though there are unconfirmed rumors swirling since 2019 that say Kylie Jenner is going to buy her own private island. The makeup mogul, for now, is content to vacation at a $10,000-per-night Bahamian villa on Harbour Island.

Kylie Jenner @vogueparis / | ©Kathy Hutchins /

Kylie vacations there with her sister, supermodel Kendall Jenner, her daughter, Stormi, and her friends. The cosmetics tycoon’s hideaway is called “Rosalita,” and it comes with six bedrooms and seven-and-a-half bathrooms. There is also a guest villa, private terrace, veranda, and garden, making as luxurious a vacation as you’d expect from the billionaire.

27. Amal & George Clooney

Location: Sonning Eye, Oxfordshire, UK

Purchased: $16.9 million*

Current Value: $18.63 million*

Not much is more romantic than an English country home, and Hollywood “it” couple George and Amal Clooney invested in a mansion on a private island in Oxfordshire. The lovely estate is a great place to raise their twins, Ella and Alexander. The couple purchased the mansion a few years ago, and they gave it some high-tech upgrades.

Amal & George Clooney / Sonning Eye, Oxfordshire, UK @dailymirror / | ©Tinseltown /

Though quaint, the mansion packs a serious punch, with a private cinema, a new pool house, and a huge terrace that is fit for the Clooneys’ infamous parties. The land surrounding the house is green and lush, making the MGM star’s home look like something out of a fairytale.

28. John Lennon

Location: Clew Bay, Ireland

Purchased: $2,409*

Current Value: $19,095*

The late, great John Lennon was so famous, he renamed an island after himself. Dorinish Island, which he bought for a song in 1967, was often known as “Beatle Island” because of its association with the rocker. He and his wife, Yoko Ono, got permission to construct a home on the reclusive Irish island.

John Lennon @NicolasMacsana / | @aleria57 /

Dorinish Island is located off the Clew Bay coast, and it is one of hundreds of islands of different sizes. Now, the island is uninhabited. Lennon reportedly was “besotted” with the island, and he wanted to spend his retirement there. When he was unexpectedly killed, the island was abandoned.

29. Ivanka Trump

Location: Indian Creek Island

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $30 Million*

Indian Creek is about as private as it gets, and it’s nicknamed “Billionaire Bunker” because of its slew of wealthy, high-profile residents, including Ivanka Trump. Trump’s neighbors will also include Adriana Lima, Carl Icahn, Julio Iglesias, and Tom Brady.

Ivanka Trump @noelimreis /

Indian Creek boasts views of Biscayne Bay in Miami, Florida. There are only forty-two people on the island, making it an ultra-exclusive private getaway. Right now, the lot Ivanka and Jared Kushner, her husband, bought is just a blank slot of land, but that $30 million property will be the host of their island mansion in a few years’ time.

30. Tyler Perry

Location: White Bay Cay, Bahamas

Purchased: $7 million*

Current Value: $8.68 million*

Actor and producer Tyler Perry can also add “globe trotter” to his list. The movie tycoon owns his own private island in the Bahamas, called White Cay Bay. Though White Cay Bay wasn’t Perry’s first private island, it is, arguably, the most beautiful.

Tyler Perry / White Bay Cay, Bahamas @faith980104 / | Kathy Hutchins /

White Cay Bay is located on the Exuma strip, which is famous for its turquoise water and white beaches. Perry’s island paradise includes a 14,000-square-foot-mansion, six guest bungalows, and a marina, spa, and tennis court. The Madea star is worth $1 billion, so he can afford to pay for all of the necessary imports (water, electricity, etc.) to keep his island retreat up and running.

31. Bill Gates

Location: Grand Bugue Island, Belize

Purchased: $1.1 million*

Current Value: $25 million*

Billionaire Bill Gates doesn’t just own Microsoft—he also owns The Grand Bugue Island, which is Belize’s largest island. Grand Bugue is known for its scenic beaches and marine life. Gates bought it with the hopes of developing it for resort and tourism purposes.

Bill Gates @CALIVIGNY ISLAND / | ©Frederic Legrand - COMEO /

The island is pretty ideal for resort development. It is less than three miles away from the Western Hemisphere’s largest barrier reef. The island is definitely not Gates’ first real estate purchase, but it is probably one of his most beautiful. The entire stretch of land spans four hundred acres, and it’s twenty-four miles east of the mainland.

32. Leonardo DiCaprio

Location: Blackadore Caye Island, Belize

Purchased: $1.75 million*

Current Value: $2.367 million*

Leonardo DiCaprio isn’t just one of the most famous actors of all time, he’s also a dedicated environmental activist. So, it only makes sense that his purchase of Blackadore Caye would also have an eco-friendly ulterior motive. The Bahamian island has been through a lot—mass deforestation and damage to its wildlife population and surrounding coral reefs.

Leonardo DiCaprio / Blackadore Caye Island, Belize @ecowatch / | ©Featureflash Photo Agency /

The Paramount star stepped in to save Blackadore Caye, shelling out several million for the island. He plans to rehabilitate it and turn it into an eco-friendly resort, which will not only house bungalows and villas, but also a research facility. The research facility will be dedicated to helping this beautiful little paradise return to its former glory.

33. Robin Williams

Location: Pender Harbour, British Columbia, Canada

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: Unknown

Located off the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Pender Harbour is a lovely little group of bays and coves that provide the perfect getaway for CEOs and celebrities alike. The population is a little under three thousand, and nearly half of the people living there are non-resident vacationers.

Robin Williams / Pender Harbour, British Columbia, Canada @bingteam / |©Everett Collection /

But, you don’t have to be an Amazon CEO or billionaire to own a piece of this island. The late, great comedian Robin Williams owns part of Pender Harbour, though the exact price tag has yet to be revealed. In an interview, he joked that owning the vacation home was like renting “a really nice apartment [above] a meth lab.”

34. Tiger Woods

Location: Lake Mälaren, Sweden

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $7.1 Million

Located near Stockholm, this private Swedish Island was developed specifically for the Golfing Champion, Tiger Woods. The Island is a whopping 62-acre piece of land featuring a chef’s kitchen, spa, pool, six golf tee boxes, and more.

Tiger Woods Islands @Lighteregg / | ©Kathy Hutchins /

A Swedish businessman purchased the island in 2006 for Woods and his wife. However, the couple divorced soon after, and the island was then put on the market for $7.1 million. The American golfer reached career earnings of $1.3 billion.

35. Celine Dion

Location: Jupiter Island, Florida

Purchased: $7 million*

Current Value: $28 million*

Superstar singer Celine Dion is worth hundreds of millions, thanks to hit songs like “My Heart Will Go On” and “The Power of Love,” and, as befitting someone as ultra-rich as her, she bought a huge mansion on a private island in Jupiter, Florida.

Celine Dion / Jupiter Island, Florida @elchucoed / | ©Tinseltown /

The singer, who has branched out into being the spokeswoman for E.L.F. competitor L’Oréal, shelled out $7 million for the estate decades ago. The five-and-a-half-acre land not only has an 11,000-square-foot mansion with fourteen bathrooms and thirteen bedrooms, it also has a private waterpark. The all-white mansion was custom-designed for Dion and her late husband, music executive Rene Angelil.

36. Richard Branson

Location: Necker Island, British Virgin Islands

Purchased: $180,000*
Current Value: $100 million*

Richard Branson has a net worth in the billions, and he chose to spend some of those billions on Necker Island. However, he didn’t pay quite that princely a sum for the island, shelling out just $180,000 for the Bahamian paradise in 1978.

Richard Branson / Necker Island, British Virgin Islands @Jaxben26 / | ©Jaguar PS /

The Virgin founder bought Necker Island when he was just twenty-nine years old, and he liked it so much that he decided to splurge on two more islands. He uses Necker Island as a private luxury estate for wealthy vacationers, and you have to be pretty rich to stay there. The average cost per night to stay at the beachy, tropical resort is $6,000-$8,000.

37. Ricky Martin

Location: Angra dos Reis, Brazil

Purchased: $8 million*

Current Value: $9.8 million*

Singer Ricky Martin will definitely be livin’ la vida loca on his own private Brazilian island called Angra dos Reis. The singer paid $8 million for the paradise during negotiations that took several months. The island is one of 365 located off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

Ricky Martin / Angra dos Reis, Brazil @nando_guima / | ©Featureflash Photo Agency /

It’s the perfect vacation spot for the wealthy and influential, as it’s known for its beauty, sunny beaches and biodiverse island wildlife. The Sony Music star’s island has nineteen acres of land, and, though details on whether he built a mansion on the island are sparse, the aerial photographs of the other islands in the tropical paradise look surreal.

38. Bear Grylls

Location: Saint Tudwal’s Islands, Ynys Tudwal Fawr (St Tudwal’s Island West)
Purchased: $134,178*
Current Value: $201,013*

Bear Grylls, the star of nail-biting reality survival shows like Man vs. Wild and Running Wild, doesn’t just like to survive in nature, he also likes to vacation in it. It made sense that his vacation home would be located on a remote island off the Welsh coast.

Bear Grylls / Saint Tudwal's Islands @Simon whittaker / | ©Featureflash Photo Agency /

The National Geographic star’s rocky, grassy island is twenty acres, and its bay is a resting place for grey seals, otters, bottle-nosed dolphins, and porpoises. Though the island might be remote, Grylls has often Instagrammed from it, giving fans a look at his serene spot, which is surrounded by sea cliffs and home to a quaint lighthouse.

39. Eddie Murphy

Location: Rooster Cay, Bahamas

Purchased: $15 million*

Current Value: $19.13 million*

In 2007, comedian Eddie Murphy was coming off several smash-hit blockbusters, and he had a lot of money in his pocket. So, he did what other super-rich celebrities do, and he bought a private Bahamian island. Called Rooster Cay, the island provides the perfect vacation spot for the comedian and his family and friends.

Eddie Murphy / Rooster Cay, Bahamas @nicmasholehah / | ©lev radin /

He paid $15 million for the private, fifteen-acre piece of land, which is located off the Nassau coast. However, this island isn’t Murphy’s only piece of tropical paradise real estate. He also owns another Bahamian getaway called Pearl Island. Both islands are decked out with pristine beaches and crystal-clear waters.

40. Nicholas Cage

Location: Leaf Cay Island, Bahamas

Purchased: $3 million*

Current Value: $3.97 million*

Nicolas Cage might have made some questionable financial decisions in his career, but his purchase of Leaf Cay probably isn’t one of them. He bought the private island in the Bahamas for $3 million. The thirty-five-acre land is home to three white beaches, two lagoons, elevations, and protected deep water access.

Nicolas Cage / Leaf Cay Island, Bahamas @brendakerr9400 / | @DiscussingFilm /

Leaf Cay is located south of Exuma Sound, and it is a perfect sight for deep-water bone fishing. The 6,000-foot-depths of the Exuma Sound often yield fresh catches of Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Barracuda, Tuna, King Fish, Sailfish, and Blue Marlin. This fisherman’s paradise is growing quickly, as Exuma is reporting a record population growth as the rich and famous flock to develop the tropical getaway.

41. Kim Kardashian

Location: The Brando, Polynesia

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $7,400/night*

Another member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan who likes to vacation in style is Kim, who took thirty of her closest friends to The Brando, a Polynesian resort developed by the late actor Marlon Brando. The occasion was her fortieth birthday party, and she flew her close friends to The Brando in a private jet.

Kim Kardashian @amfyr / | ©Kathy Hutchins /

The reality star and business mogul picked a great destination. The Brando is one of the most beautiful resorts in the world, perfect for a lavish celebration. Located on Tetiaroa, it boasts twelve islands in the atoll, all encircling a turquoise lagoon. The Brando has thatched-roof villas, private pools, two five-star restaurants, spas, and tennis courts.

42. Pamela Anderson

Location: Vancouver Island, Canada

Purchased: Unknown
Current Value: $18 million*

The New York Times called Pamela Anderson’s Vancouver Island home a “Garden of Eden.” The model and actress said bye-bye to her Malibu beachfront abode (for $15 million) and instead went up north to Canada, where she is originally from.

Pamela Anderson / Vancouver Island, Canada @CanadiansNanaimo /

Anderson said she left her small Canadian town to model for Playboy, but, in the end, she just wanted “to come home.” She called her hometown “one of the most beautiful places” in the world. She and her husband were married in a quiet ceremony on the island, and Anderson said that she’s focused now on “creating [her] life…where it all started.”

43. Marlon Brando

Location: Tetiaroa, Tahiti

Purchased: $270,000*

Current Value: $3,000 per night* (Guests)

Actor Marlon Brando paid just $270,000 for Tetiaroa, a French Polynesian island. The Tahitian paradise was previously owned by a wealthy Canadian dentist before it was sold to The Godfather star, who reportedly viewed Tetiaroa as a spiritual getaway.

Marlon Brando / Tetiaroa, Tahiti @tahititravelmat / | @RealEmirHan /

Now, Tetiaroa is home to The Brando, a luxury resort. The atoll is composed of a dozen tiny islands, and The Brando is its centerpiece. The luxury, beachy vacation getaway costs $3,000 per night. The Brando calls Tetiaroa a “stunning” place of “rejuvenation,” “tranquility,” and “beauty.” Judging from the painting-like pictures of the secluded atoll, we have to agree.

44. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill

Location: Goat Cay, Bahamas

Purchased: $1.2 million*

Current Value: $1.7 million*

Country music superstars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill aren’t just one of the cutest couples in Hollywood—they’re also the owners of a private island in the Bahamas. Goat Cay, also known as L’ile d’Anges, is worth $35 million now, but that value didn’t come cheap.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill / Goat Cay, Bahamas @adhraaisaacs / ©Tinseltown /

The singers bought the island in 2003, but it required a ton of work to get it up and running. The pair had to build housing for its construction staff, and then it had to import electricity, plumbing, and water for the crews. It took nine years to get L’ile d’Anges to its current glory. As Hill put it, they “set out to build a house,” but ended up having to build “a little town.”

45. Diana Ross

Location: Tiano, Raiatea Atoll, Society Islands, French Polynesia

Purchased: $280,620*

Current Value: $11.88 million*

Motown queen Diana Ross called this French Polynesian island her “second home.” The 8.1-hectare island is located away from Raiatea, its neighboring paradise. Motu Tiano was where Ross spent her honeymoon in the mid-eighties, when she married Arne Raab, a Norweigan shipping magnate.

Diana Ross / Tiano @greenmeit / | ©s_bukley /

The island is super-private, though it is located in close proximity to more inhabited islands that have restaurants and stores. Motu Tiano is also a water sport haven, as its deep seas and lagoons provide the perfect place to scuba dive, fish, and surf. Lush, palm-tree-laden gardens complete the package, making this a true island hideaway.

46. Roger Waters

Location: Bonds Cay, Bahamas

Purchased: $16 million*

Current Value: $19.03 million*

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters has had quite a slew of hits since he burst onto the music scene in 1965, with singles like “Another Brick in the Wall,” “Comfortably Numb,” and “Wish You Were Here.” The singer-songwriter can add “real estate developer” to his resume, as he partnered with his fellow artist, Shakira, to invest in a private island in the Bahamas.

Roger Waters / Bonds Cay, Bahamas @kaixinfun / | ©Girish Menon /

Though the idea of a collaboration between Pink Floyd and Shakira is super-exciting, fans will have to wait for the song version, as Waters’ and Shakira’s endeavor is purely about the real estate. The two snagged Bonds Cay to turn it into a private resort for wealthy vacationers.

47. Brooke Shields

Location: Emerald Island, New York

Purchased: $775,000*

Current Value: $1.2 million*

Brooke Shields lived on Emerald Island for years, and she owned a home there, designed by the famous architect Stanford White. The actress’s house is worth over $1 million today, and the island that houses it is located in Chazy Lake, a park in the Adirondacks.

Brooke Shields @islandsmagazine / | ©s_bukley /

The house sits on nearly nine acres of land, and it has cozy fireplaces and beautiful woodwork throughout (Stanford White’s specialty). The home is surrounded by a tree-lined, private causeway, making this a true private hideaway for the actress, who became famous, ironically, playing a girl who had been shipwrecked on a remote island.

48. Michael Schumacher

Location: Dubai

Purchased: $5.49 million*

Current Value: $7 million*

German racecar driver Michael Schumacher competed for Jordan, Ferrari, Mercedes, and Benetton in Formula One. Though he’s retired now, he still isn’t done living the high life, and he was gifted a private island in Dubai by Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Michael Schumacher ©Marat Dupri / | ©zstock /

The Sheikh presented the seven-time Formula 1 world champion with the private hideaway, which is one of three hundred man-made islands off the coast of Dubai. The island cost $5.49 million when Schumacher was granted it in 2011; it now costs around $7 million today. The developer cautioned in 2016 that the islands were sinking back into the sea—so, hopefully, Schumacher’s gift stays afloat.

49. Rudolf Nureyev

Location: Li Galli, Italy

Purchased: $2.4 million*

Current Value: $80,000/week*

Rudolph Nureyev is one of the twentieth century’s most celebrated dancers. The Russian ballet star relaxes in peace on Li Galli, a small, private archipelago off the Amalfi Coast of Italy. It was dubbed “the dance island,” not only because of Nureyev’s ownership, but also because it was shaped like a dolphin jumping.

Rudolf Nureyev @Peter Baldwin / | @invaluable /

Nureyev was reportedly obsessed with the ideas of majesty and grandeur, and the house he built reflects those ideals. He turned the simple Li Galli home into a Maharajah palace. He adorned the rooms with bronze Anatolian statues, Turkish mosaics, and Kilim carpets. Nureyev even put a helipad on the roof.

50. David and Frederick Barclay

Location: Sark, England

Purchased: $3.26 million*

Current Value: $6.02 million*

Described as a “windswept eyesore” by one publication, the billionaire Barclay brothers, Frederick and David, bought the eighty-ace Brecqhou Island in the 1990s for a few million. At the time of purchase, the island was a real fixer-upper.

David and Frederick Barclay @efc2000 / @dailymail /

The Barclays didn’t shirk from the challenge, and, with their considerable resources, they were able to turn the island into a nice getaway. Located in the English Channel’s Sark Island, the brothers built a mock-Gothic castle on Brecqhou. The castle has one-hundred-foot walls made of granite, two swimming pools, a helipad, and actual battlements. Brecqhou went from being an “eyesore” to something out of a fairytale.

51. Ted Turner

Location: St. Phillips Island, South Carolina

Purchased: $4.9 million*

Current Value: $12,000/5 nights*

Ted Turner is one of the richest people in the world, and the business tycoon bought a private island retreat for $4.9 million. He purchased St. Phillips Island from the state of South Carolina in 2018, and he has kept it pretty much the same—chock full of nature and wildlife.

Ted Turner @Forbes / | ©Kathy Hutchins /

The barrier island, which was described as “primitive,” has deer, gator, black fox squirrels, and tabby ruins, all of which are nestled amid hardwood maritime forests and pine trees. Turner turned the island from a private retreat into a commercial venture, and you can rent St. Phillips for $12,000 for five nights.

52. Paul Allen

Location: Anacortes, Washington

Purchased: $13.2 million*

Current Value: $8 million*

Billionaire Paul Allen bought Allan Island, a 292-acre island located off the coast of Anacortes, Washington. Allan Island was named in 1841 in honor of Lt. William Henry Allen, who was killed during the War of 1812. The Microsoft billionaire bought Allan Island in 1992.

Paul Allen @Joe_shaYdD / | @People /

The expansive stretch of property has been placed on and off the market, and it needs a lot of renovations and improvements. Most recently, a new dock was completed on Allan Island, and new cabins are also being proposed. Though Allan Island has an airstrip, it is mostly covered in forested, undeveloped terrain.

53. Mike Tyson

Location: Antigua
Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: Unknown

Mike Tyson is one of the most successful boxers in the history of the sport, but he can add something else to his resume now: cannabis farmer. Tyson’s pot-growing business has taken off, and he announced plans to build a cannabis farm and conference center in the Caribbean.

Mike Tyson ©Zoran Karapancev / ©Jaguar PS /

Tyson also owns the Tyson Ranch in L.A. This enterprise is still underway, but it looks like it’s going to be a major hotspot. It will have a festival and the longest “lazy river” in the world. Tyson Ranch will also have a hotel, research center, and Tyson University, which will teach would-be cannabis farmers different growing techniques.

54. Craig McCaw

Location: James Island, British Columbia

Purchased: $7.95 million*

Current Value: $75 million*

Craig McCaw is a reclusive billionaire, but that doesn’t stop him from making billionaire-like purchases, including James Island. The private island, located in British Columbia, has only risen in value, and it’s currently worth $75 million, nearly ten times what McCaw bought it for.

Craig McCaw ©Russ Heinl / | ©Photolog08 /

The 780-acre island has a 5,000-square-foot main house, private airstrip, pool house, and a boat harbor for all seasons. The cluster of buildings on the island is Wild, Wild West-themed, and Jack Nicklaus designed James Island’s eighteen-hole golf course. For guests, there are six cottages from which to choose. Famous faces like David Foster, Quincy Jones, and Bill Gates have all vacationed on James Island.

55. John Malone

Location: Jupiter Island, Florida

Purchased: $38 million*

Current Value: $39 million*

John Malone, who made his billions from cable, paid one of the highest purchase prices in the history of Florida real estate for this Jupiter Island retreat. Malone paid $38 million for the mansion on 440 S. Beach Road, which was sold by the estate of Horst Brandstatter, the creator of the Playmobil.

John Malone @Finance_Channel / @startmakkelijk /

This is far from Malone’s first real estate purchase. The cable tycoon owns over two million acres of land, spread out over seven states. Malone’s new Jupiter Island home includes 506 feet of beach, a 3,100-square-foot home, pool, dock, guest house, and forty-foot elevation. The estate agent who sold Malone the mansion says he hopes it puts Jupiter Island “more on the map.”

56. Mark Zuckerberg

Location: Kauai, Hawaii

Purchased: $53 million*

Current Value: $53 million*

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg owns a lot of real estate, and he and his wife, Priscilla Chan, recently added to their portfolio with a 600-acre purchase of land on Kauai, Hawaii. The Hawaiian island was purchased in three different transactions, finally concluding in May of 2021.

Mark Zuckerberg ©Shane Myers Photography / ©catwalker /

Zuckerberg and Chan said that they were planning to develop a ranch on the land, promising to be “mindful” when conserving the land. Parts of Kauai are in dispute, especially when it comes to ownership. The Kuleana lands were originally passed down to native Hawaiian families in the nineteenth century, and the question of who owns what is still ongoing, even during Zuckerberg’s purchase.

57. Dean Kamen

Location: Fishers Island Sound, Southold, New York

Purchased: $2.5 million*

Current Value: $6.09 million*

Dean Kamen, an eccentric genius who invented the SEGWAY, owns a home on North Dumpling Island, which is located off the coast of New York. Kamen’s secret island getaway is two acres, and Kamen purchased it for $2.5 million in the mid-eighties.

Dean Kamen @completelycoastal / @ggeraths /

The island is now its own country, as Kamen became disgruntled with America when the government wouldn’t let him put a wind turbine on North Dumpling. The honorable island nation, with its sole resident, is technically the most carbon-neutral, eco-friendly country in the world. The self-taught inventor says he hopes his secession from the United States inspires others to become, if not their own rulers, then masters of their own destinies.

58. Robbie Williams

Location: Mustique, Caribbean

Purchased: $13 million*

Current Value: $14 million*

Robbie Williams, a singer-songwriter who penned hits such as “Angels” and “Rock DJ,” paid $13 million for his own island getaway in the Caribbean. He took money (around $32 million) that he’d earned from an L.A. real estate transaction and went outward, into the ocean.

Robbie Williams @TheSunOnline / | ©Featureflash Photo Agency /

The artist and his wife visited Mustique in May of 2013 and they fell in love with the Grenadian island. Williams is far from the only celebrity who has vacationed there. Other famous vacationers include Prince William, Tommy Hilfiger, and Mick Jagger. Williams was swayed by the fact that he’d had a sold-out tour that year, and he purchased the Caribbean home as a present to himself for achieving that feat.

59. Jeffrey Epstein

Location: Great Saint James, U.S. Virgin Islands

Purchased: $7.95 million*

Current Value: $63.9 million*

Financier Jeffrey Epstein owned Little Saint James, which he nicknamed “Little Saint Jeff.” The island was worth nearly $8 million at the time of purchase, and its main house was designed by Edward Tuttle, the same architect who designed Aman Resorts. At its peak, Little Saint James had seventy staff.

Jeffrey Epstein @oblaadee / @barbadostoday /

The 165-acre island is currently valued at almost $70 million. The current owner of the estate is Michael Daffey, a former executive for Goldman Sachs. Daffey purchased the home for $51 million, and all proceeds from the sale of the real estate went to charity, to help victims of assault.

60. Cristiano Ronaldo

Location: Madeira Island, Portugal

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: N/A

Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago that has four islands, all of which are known for their subtropical climate and namesake wine. Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t resist this island paradise, and he spent much of 2020 vacationing on Madeira with his family.

Cristiano Ronaldo @WhiteCollarMag / | ©AGIF /

Though some reports stated that he bought a stretch of land on the tropical island, these are, so far, unconfirmed. Ronaldo definitely spent time there, posting Instagram photos of him and his family spending time exploring the island’s natural cliffs, beaches, and settlements. In addition to Ronaldo and his family, Madeira is home to nearly 300,000 people.

61. Roman Abramovich

Location: New Holland Island, Russia

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: Unknown

Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich is responsible for funding the restoration of the beautiful Russian island, New Holland. New Holland Island was created in the 1700s, and it took its name from its then-similar appearance to Amsterdam. New Holland had shipbuilding facilities and canals that made it the little brother of Amsterdam.

New Holland Island - Roman Abramovich @sezerozkara / | ©magicinfoto /

After the early twentieth century, the Island fell into disrepair. It would take nearly a century before it was restored. In 2016, Abramovich and his work began the restoration of the naval prison, foundry, and commandant’s house. New Holland, which The Daily Telegraph described as “Roman Abramovich’s romantic island dream,” is slated to be finished by 2025.

62. Bernard Arnault

Location: Indigo Island, Exumas, Bahamas

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $10-$15 million*

French tycoon Bernard Arnault owns Indigo Island, a dreamy paradise that he rents out to his wealthy friends for $300,000 a night. Indigo Island isn’t found on any maps, and the identities of its visitors are kept secret. The Exumas, Bahamas island’s owner was only revealed after hackers leaked Arnault’s name

Indigo Island - Bernard Arnault @magazinecapital / | ©Legrand - COMEO /

The idyllic island is 135 acres, and it has an exclusive villa located on the top of a hill. The villa offers pristine beach views, and a small marina is located down the hill. When it comes to amenities and other features, not much is known about this secretive getaway.

63. Mikhail Prokhorov

Location: North Island, Seychelles

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $40 million*

Mikhail Prokhorov owns a Gulfstream V, yacht, gold mines, an NBA team, and a watch worth $200K. It’s only fitting that he added “private island” to his resume a decade ago, when he purchased North Island in the Seychelles back in 2011.

North Island - Mikhail Prokhorov @StilettosMag / | ©withGod /

Prokhorov’s island is located in the Indian Ocean, and it’s one of the most beautiful oases in the Seychelles. North Island has a small luxury hotel, which can fit thirty to forty oligarchs and whoever they want as their guests. Reportedly, Prokhorov paid $40 million for the island (adjusting for inflation), and he spent New Year’s of that year there.

64. Louis Moore Bacon

Location: Robins Island, New Suffolk, New York (Peconic Bay)

Purchased: $11 million*

Current Value: $20.5 million*

Wall Street guru Louis Moore Bacon made his millions from investing and working the stock market. Bacon bought Robins Island in the 1990s for just $11 million at the time ($20.49 million in today’s money), but Robins Island isn’t a Bahamian paradise like we’ve seen elsewhere on this list.

Robins Island - Louis Moore Bacon @judit7230 / | @columbiabusiness /

Instead, the 453-acre island is located off the coast of New Suffolk in New York. Situated in the Peconic Bay, Bacon, a billionaire tycoon who closed his hedge fund a couple of years ago, has kept the island’s natural beauty preserved. It isn’t accessible to the public, and the only information on the forested escape lies in satellite photos.

65. The Emir of Qatar

Location: Six Islands in the Ionian Sea, Greece

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $10.08 million*

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani is the Emir of Qatar, and he has a net worth of $2.5 billion. The Emir is one of the richest people on earth, and he spends his money on a lot of things, including a collection of islands in the Ionian Sea. There was a lot of red tape that the Emir had to cut through to get his prized islands, which, according to The Guardian, he bought “for a song.”

Six Greek islands in the Ionian Sea - The Emir of Qatar @TravellingNews / @kcmrkelly /

The Emir spent a year-and-a-half trying to take possession of the islands. He already has a property portfolio stretching from London to Beijing, and he finally got what he wanted in 2013, mooring his super-yacht there for vacation.

66. Paul Tudor Jones

Location: Three Islands in the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $30 million*

There is a fierce debate over whether Paul Tudor Jones made these islands, or whether nature made them and the billionaire tycoon just got lucky. Either way, these Chesapeake Bay paradisos are beautiful, and they undeniably spell out “PTJ.” Jones bought them to add to his 3,000-acre wildlife preserve, which he’s owned in Maryland for years.

Three Private Islands Spelling out initials in Chesapeake Bay, Maryland - Paul Tudor Jones @instaforex / | @grimjobe /

The islands are part of Tudor Farms. They are located away from the main estate, though nearby enough that Jones and his family can visit. Jones has kept his islands pretty private, and satellite photos reveal all that is known about them so far.

67. Bacardi Family

Location: An Island Near Grenada

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: Unknown

Bacardi, one of the largest family-owned spirit companies in existence, has netted the Bacardi empire $19 million. Booze dynasties, like Bacardi, own $70 billion of the world’s wealth and, if you’ve been following the news, you know that these alcohol billionaires spend their money on some wild stuff.

Near Grenada Bacardi Family ©Leonard Jerry Horsford / | @theIWSC /

That includes islands. The Bacardi family owns islands near Grenada, some of which they use as distilleries for their rum. Bacardi’s heritage is deeply entrenched with sunny, tropical paradises. Cuba is the island on which they have the strongest presence, and, as the family said, they’ll “survive in Cuba” as long as “the coconut palm exists.”

68. Gianni Agnelli

Location: Dino Island, off of Calabria, Italy

Purchased: $5.79 million*

Current Value: $51.61 million*

Gianni Agnelli, the former principal shareholder of the automaking giant Fiat, bought Dino Island near Calabria in 1962. At the time, he paid 50 million lira ($5.79 million) for it. Adjusting for inflation, that works out to a value of around $51.61 million. The beautiful island is located in the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Dino Island off the Calabria - Gianni ©Agnelli DonGatley / | @EdGweb /

The 120-acre island gets its name from either the Italian word aedina, which means temple, or dino, a Greek word that means “vortex.” Agnelli originally purchased the island with the intent of turning it into an international vacation hotspot. That never happened, and the contract of sale for Dino Island was nullified in 2014.

69. Raymond Burr

Location: Naitoumba, Lau Islands, Fiji

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $5.68 million*

Raymond Burr, the star of TV dramas like Ironside and Perry Mason, was a classic villain from the 1950s. Burr’s ventures as the “bad guy” netted him a bank account in the millions, and he used some of that money to buy Naitoumba, a Fijian island in the northern Lau Island region.

Naitoumba, Fiji - Raymond Burr ©NASA / ©NBC TV /

Burr and his partner intended to use the 4,015-acre island for cattle and copra (dried coconut kernels). They raised cattle and grew Copra on Naitoumba until the 1980s, when the land was sold to a different buyer, a religious commune headed by Adi Da, for $2.1 million.

70. Edward de Bono

Location: Green Island, Australia; Tessera, Italy; Reklusia, Bahamas; West Skeam, Ireland

Purchased: Various

Current Value: $200-$300 million*

The life and times of Edward de Bono, a Maltese physician, and author, are pretty wild. At one point, he was worth a lot of money, so much so that he could afford to purchase a handful of islands in some of the most beautiful locations in the world.

Green Island – Australia, Tessera – Italy, Reklusia – Bahamas Edward de Bono @ytravelblog / | @Dr_EdwarddeBono /

De Bono owned Green Island in Australia, Tessera in Italy, Reklusia in the Bahamas, and, later, West Skeam in Ireland. The Maltese millionaire ended up having to sell his islands in order to fund the end of his marriage. Though he had a profitable real estate portfolio up until his death, those islands were the first to go when it came to his settlement with his ex-wife, Josephine.

71. Disney Family

Location: Echo Island, San Juan Islands, Washington, USA

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: Under $500,000*

The Disney family is worth $130 billion, though they only own a small portion of the company, which has become one of the largest entertainment conglomerates in the world. The Disneys owned one of the San Juan Islands, off the coast of Washington, for a while.

Echo Island, San Juan Islands, Washington, USA - Disney Family @bingteam / @charge40 /

They couldn’t have picked a more beautiful region. The archipelago is known for its rural landscapes, isles, and natural wildlife. Though Disney, as a company, owns private islands in the Bahamas, which it uses for customer cruises, Echo Island was the property of the Disney family and its heirs, though not much is known about the investment.

72. Errol Flynn

Location: Navy Island, Port Antonio, Jamaica

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: Unlisted (Government-Owned)

Actor Errol Flynn starred in some of the biggest movies in Hollywood, including The Adventures of Robin Hood, Captain Blood, Dodge City, and The Sea Hawk. With his riches, he funded lavish vacations and even a purchase of his own private island: Navy Island.

Navy Island, Port Antonio, Jamaica - Errol Flynn @alyssamorrow359 / @Bobbieof5 /

Located in Port Antonio, Jamaica, Navy Island has changed hands quite a few times throughout its history. Flynn was its most famous owner, and he hosted tons of parties at the exclusive getaway. After Flynn, Navy Island became a resort community. Now, its party days are over, and the Government of Jamaica owns it and has closed it to the public.

73. Nick Hexum

Location: Melody Key, Monroe County, Florida

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $3 million*

Rocker Nick Hexum, the former lead singer of 311, owned Melody Key until 2011. The Floridian Island, a six-acre property with a large mansion on it, went up for auction in 2013 after the post-Hexum owner made some expensive updates, increasing its value immensely.

Melody Key, Florida - Nick Hexum @KColoradostyle / | @Mr_Jeff__ /

The estate on the island is one of the most impressive parts of it. It has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. It also boasts a plunge pool, rooftop observation deck, wrap-around balconies that provide views of the beautiful Florida straits, a gourmet kitchen decked out with granite countertops, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Not to mention, Melody Key has its own private beach.

74. Jim Jannard

Location: Kaibu and Vatu Vara Islands, Fiji

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $215 million*

Jim Jannard, the founder of Oakley and Red Digital, has a net worth of nearly $3 billion. Like pretty much every billionaire, he decided to spend some of his money on a few private islands. Jannard owns two islands in Fiji: Kaibu and Vatu Vara. He also owns a 500-acre island, Spieden Island, in the San Juan Islands off the coast of Washington.

Kaibu Island & Vatu Vara Island, Fiji - Jim Jannard @liamgmocccc / @ulaugh /

Kaibu and Vatu Vara each have their high points. Kaibu has a huge reef and a lagoon, making it a water sports and snorkeling haven. Vatu Vara, a former atoll, has volcanoes and dense forests, meaning it is for explorers who aren’t faint of heart.

75. Dietrich Mateschitz

Location: Laucala, Lau Islands, Fiji

Purchased: $9.72 million*

Current Value: $14.22 million*

Laucala is one of a few small islands off the coast of Thurston Point, which is located in Fiji. These privately-owned islands are beautiful and exotic, and it costs between $7,000 and $36,000 a night to stay in the resort there.

Laucala, Fiji - Dietrich Mateschitz @lesliepetrequin / @forbesmagazine /

Dietrich Mateschitz, the owner of Red Bull, an energy drink company, bought Laucala from its previous owner, a Forbes heir, for $9.72 million in 2003. Now, the island is worth at least $14.22 million, possibly more, considering the resort haven it has become. It has twenty-five bars on the island, each of which has its own theme.

76. Peter Nygård

Location: Nygard Cay, Bahamas

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $14 million*

Billionaire Peter Nygard owns Nygard Cay, located in the Bahamas. The Canadian designer’s crazy lifestyle applied to his home in the Bahamas, which featured things like fake volcanoes that spouted dry ice, a gym right on the beach, statues, a disco hut that had cameras under the floors, and a thirty-car garage modeled on a Mayan cave.

Nygard Cay, Bahamas Peter Nygård @celebrityfm / | ©Toglenn /

The 150,000-square-foot estate also had an indoor swimming pool and aquarium. On one side of the aquarium were dolphins, and on the other were sharks. When you entered the estate, the first notes of the theme to Phantom of the Opera would play.

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: Unlisted

The Du Pont family is one of the wealthiest families in America, and they’ve been successful since the 1800s when they founded the Du Pont Company. The Du Ponts have their fortune in the gunpowder business, and they’ve amassed not only billions of dollars, but also quite a property portfolio.

Cherry Island, Chesapeake Bay - Du Pont Family @ECMFCM / | @people /

One holding of the Du Ponts is Cherry Island, located off the coast of Maryland. The Du Ponts have owned Cherry Island since 1831, and there are pictures of the family vacationing there for generations. Cherry Island has been passed down through the family over time, keeping it privately-owned.

Current Value: $125.48 million*

Baron Rothschild and his family are one of the wealthiest families in the world, and you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t at least recognize the Rothschild name. Baron Rothschild purchased Bell Island, located in the Exuma Cay, Bahamas region, sometime in the latter twentieth century.

Weddell Island has been owned by quite a few families during its time, including the Williams, Hamiltons, Fergusons, Visicks, and, now, the Cliftons. One of its previous owners, Robert Ferguson, was even born on the remote island. Currently, Weddell is being renovated to support tourism and farming, bringing the island back to a time when it was stocked full with sheep.

Purchased: $10,000*

Current Value: $171,460*

Niihau is a large inhabited island in Hawaii, measuring almost 70 square miles. The island is a hotbed for endangered species, including Brighamia insignis, which is a type of Hawaiian lobelioid, a flowering plant. In 1864, Elizabeth Sinclair, a Scottish plantation owner, bought the island for $10,000.

Niihau - Bruce and Keith Robinson ©Polihale / | @wikimedia /

In the late 1800s, she passed ownership of the island to her descendants, the Robinson family, and they’ve owned it ever since. The Robinson family keeps the island private, refusing all outsiders except the U.S. Navy and other government officials and invited guests. Though there have been a few safaris and hunting tours, Bruce and Keith Robinson, the current owner-managers, keep a tight grip on the island.

82. Afuhaamango Family

Purchased: N/A (Gifted)

Current Value: Unknown

The Afuhaamango family owns Kenutu, an island that is part of the Vava’u Islands. They’ve owned the island for centuries, ever since the King of Tonga gifted the noble family the island as a signal of his gratitude for their help in winning many battles. The island has remained privately-owned ever since.

Kenutu - Afuha’amango Family ©Danita Delimont / | @PacificIslandFoodRevolution /

Currently, Kenutu is uninhabited, but it is said that locals from nearby islands in Vava’u visit Kenutu from time to time. According to the legends of Tonga, Vava’u was created by Maui, a trickster god. Maui also created Tongatapu, putting more effort into that island than Vava’u.

Current Value: $30 million*

Shane and Darren Pettiona, as well as Peter Stockley, own Iririki Island. The Australian businesspeople opened a resort on Iririki, which is located in Mele Bay. The island was owned by the Ifira Islanders before it was colonized by the British. The Pettionas and Stockley bought the island in 2019.

Iririki - Peter Stockley @ella777111 / @findyouritineraryofficial /

The tropical island is the sight of beautiful villas, beaches, and snorkeling opportunities. Before it was privately owned, it was the sight of the first British hospital in New Hebrides. Pacific Islanders were taught the staples of modern medicine in 1910, including the management of tropical diseases, rheumatic fever, and meningitis.

84. Tata Crocombe

85. Graeme Hart

Location: Eori, Mamanuca Islands, Fiji

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: $1.25 million*

New Zealand businessman Graeme Hart is the wealthiest person in the country. Though he prefers to keep to himself and avoid the media, the billionaire businessman, who has a net worth of $9 billion, owns quite a few properties, such as Eori.

Eori - Graeme Hart @ncertpoint / | @ncertpoint /

Eori, located in the Mamanuca Islands in Fiji, is a tiny, twenty-four-acre island that sold at auction for $1.25 million (adjusting for inflation). Graeme Hart has owned the island since 2009 through LLC Eori Island Limited, which is owned by Rank Group, Hart’s personal investment corporation. For now, it appears that Hart has no plans to commercialize the island.

86. Shah Rukh Khan

Location: Palm Jumeirah, Dubai

Purchased: $2.428 million*

Current Value: $2.5 million*

Indian actor Shah Rukh Khan is the holder of a “golden visa” in the UAE. As a result, he can live anywhere, and Khan chooses to live in one of the most picture-perfect areas of Dubai: Palm Jumeirah. He has a villa in Palm Jumeirah, which he calls Jannat.

Shah Rukh Khan @munafpa99881129 / | ©Delpixel /

Jumeirah, which is the largest man-made archipelago in the world, is known for its posh apartments and villas, upmarket global restaurants, and glitzy hotels. There are beach clubs, night clubs, and views of the Dubai coastline. Jannat is located in Palm Jumeirah’s K Frond, one of its richest sections (and that’s saying something, as the whole place is rich).

87. Dr. Henry Jarecki

Location: Guana Island

Current Value: $6,000 per night to stay*

Academic and psychiatrist Henry Jarecki was born in Poland in 1933. He now is a part-time resident of both Rye, New York and the British Virgin Islands. Jareckie is an honorary Belonger of the British Virgin Islands, as he owns two islands within that archipelago: Norman and Guana Island.

Dr. Henry Jarecki @islandsmagazine / | ©Brian Killian /

Guana Island is one of very few privately-owned islands in the Caribbean. It has seven white, sandy beaches and nearly 900 acres of tropical forest, valleys, mountains, and hills. Though Guana Island contains a small resort for Jarecki, it is mostly a nature preserve, as it has more fauna and flora than any island its size in the region, if not the world.

88. Georges Cohen

Location: Calivigny, Grenada

Purchased: $100 million*

Current Value: $132,000 per night to stay*

Georges Cohen is a businessman with a net worth of half a billion dollars, thanks to his position as the director of the African Gold Group, Inc. Cohen bought Calivigny Island in 2000 after it caught his wife’s eye. His wife, Martine, was swimming near their yacht when she saw the island and wanted to take a look.

Georges Cohen @villaguru / | @chimran55 /

Martine persuaded her husband to purchase Calivigny, which is right off the coast of Grenada, and he agreed, buying it on the spot. Calivigny is covered in lush forests, hills, and beaches, and there is a coastline mansion that overlooks the blue water.

89. Jiri Smejc

Location: Velaa Island, Maldives

Purchased: Unlisted

Current Value: $3,000-$4,000 per night to stay*

Emma Capital entrepreneur Jiri Smejc is one of Europe’s best-known investors. He decided to venture into private island ownership when he purchased Velaa, located in the Maldives. After purchasing Velaa, he set up an all-inclusive luxury resort that he said “redefines the experience” of the region.

Jiri Smejc @bevpearson65 / | @adduXfiles /

Velaa Island has forty-three private villas and two four-bedroom houses, all of which are made from both local materials and contemporary design pieces. Velaa isn’t cheap. For a one-night stay for two people, you’ll pay $3,000-$4,000. Velaa has sea views, garden cabanas, terrace pools, five upscale restaurants, a spa, and a high-end wine cellar.

90. Anthony Kiedis

Location: Kauai, Hawaii

Purchased: $7 million*

Current Value: $10 million*

Anthony Kiedis, one of the members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, previously owned a $10 million mansion in Hawaii. He wasn’t feeling the island life anymore, as he put the Kauai North Shore property up for sale in July of 2021.

Anthony Kiedis @forbesmagazine /

The single-family residence has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, and it has a master suite with its own lanai, a steam shower and soaking tub in the master bathroom, built-in bunk beds in the kids’ room, automated blinds, exotic woods, an office, a restaurant-grade kitchen, and, of course, ocean views and beach access. We have a feeling Kiedis won’t have trouble selling this island paradise.

91. Ekaterina Rybolovleva

Location: Skorpios

Purchased: $153 million*

Current Value: $160 million*

Russian billionaire heiress Ekaterina Rybolovleva did what Russian billionaire heiresses do: buy private islands. The twenty-four-year-old heiress bought Skorpios, one of the most famous private islands in Greece. The Rybolovlev family bought Skorpios for $153 million in 2013.

Ekaterina Rybolovleva @GreekPictures /

The island has had a lot of famous owners, including Aristotle Onassis, the former husband of the late Jackie Kennedy. The Rybolovlev family has big plans for the island, as they plan to turn it into a luxury resort for people with “ultra-high net worth.” Considering that the Russian oligarchs have a net worth of $9.1 billion, this could be a new Billionaire Bunker.

92. Richard Branson

Location: Necker Island

Purchased: $180,000*

Current Value: $10 million*

When you think of eccentric Virgin CEO Richard Branson, you probably think of space travel, bungee jumping in Las Vegas, or private islands. Necker Island is Branson’s best-known island. The private island is located in the British Virgin Islands, north of Virgin Gorda. Necker is part of Virgin’s Limited Edition Portfolio, which is a collection of luxury properties.

Richard Branson @dailymail / | © m.kru /

Necker Island isn’t abandoned. It is a super-expensive luxury resort. If you want to rent a villa, you’ll pay $27,000 a week. If you want to rent the whole island, you’ll pay $42,000 a night. The Necker Villas are perfect for people who like wildlife mise-en-scene and Bali-inspired accommodations.

93. Dmitry Rybolovlev

Location: Skorpios

Purchased: $153 million*

Current Value: $160 million*

Dmitry Rybolovlev is a Russian billionaire. Though the headlines read that his daughter, Ekaterina, bought Skorpios, a Greek island, it was Dmitry’s money that bought it. He is an investor who owned Urakali, a potash producer, and he is also the president of AS Monaco, the President of Monaco’s football team.

Dmitry Rybolovlev @_Corfu / | @I.Love.Lefkada /

Currently, Skorpios is under development. When Rybolovlev bought the island in 2013, it became a no-go zone for tourists, as it is undergoing heavy construction to turn it into a resort for the super-rich. There’s a tiny little rocky beach that visitors can go to, but, otherwise, stay away from Skorpios for now.

94. Benny Andersson

Location: Viggso Island, Sweden

Purchased: Unlisted

Current Value: Unlisted

One of the biggest music-related tourist attractions in Sweden is the tiny cottage on Viggso where ABBA composed some of its greatest hits. We’ve all heard “Dancing Queen” and “Fernando,” and Viggso Island was the place where Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus wrote these hits.

Benny Anderson @verdaskinha / | @RTL_presse /

The couples in ABBA, along with Stikkan Andersson, the band manager, bought properties on Viggso in the 1970s. In 2007, Ulvaeus and his family bought another home on Viggso, purchasing it from Lasse Anderson, Stikkan’s son. The Viggso Cabin is the main residence on the island, located right near the coast of Sweden’s eastern shoreline.

95. Kylie Minogue

Location: French Island, Victoria

Purchased: $1 million*

Current Value: $1.25 million*

Pop superstar Kylie Minogue once owned a Victorian island retreat. Victoria’s French Island has a population of 110 people, and it is self-sufficient, as it has no link to the mainland. Minogue owned a farm holding there from 2005 to 2010, though she also had a separate residential retreat called Beauciel.

Kylie Minogue @corrillh / | @KylieTWST /

French Island is environmentally sensitive, which is why it has so few residents, even though it is nearly twice the size of Phillip Island nearby. Minogue could only access the island by plane, boat, or helicopter. French Island is perfect for anyone who needs a break from society, which is understandable for Minogue, one of the most tabloid-covered pop stars of all time.

96. Bernard Arnault

Location: Indigo Island, Bahamas

Purchased: $35 million*

Current Value: $300,000 per week to rent*

Indigo Island is a 135-acre island in the Bahamas. It is a patch of palm trees, limestone, and generally uncharted territory. Though Indigo Island is not super inhabited, it is not unowned, either. Indigo Island is owned by billionaire Bernard Arnault, the owner of LVMH, which has household names like Givenchy, Christian Dior, and Fendi under its belt.

Bernard Arnault @lotherin / @mattibroucke1375 /

Arnault is the fourth-richest man in the world. He rents out Indigo Island for $300,000 a week, though much of the venue still remains untouched and a bit of an improv wildlife sanctuary. Whether Arnault will do more with Indigo Island remains to be seen.

97. Richard Branson

Location: Moskito Island

Purchased: $13.5 million*

Current Value: $17,500 per night to stay*

Billionaire Richard Branson makes this list yet again with Moskito Island, another island that he purchased and turned into a resort. Moskito Island might not be as famous as Necker Island, but it is still a luxury private venue for the rich (and often the famous, too).

Richard Branson @yachtcs / | ©Kathy Hutchins /

Branson describes Moskito as the Caribbean’s “newest jewel.” The 125-acre island is home to several estates, the most opulent of which is the Branson Estate. The Branson is situated on an outcrop with sea views, three villas, and elevated wooden walkways. It even has its own beach. Rates for the estates on Moskito range from $17,500 a night and up.

98. Mukesh Ambani

Location: Antilia

Purchased: $1.2 billion*

Current Value: $2 billion*

Located on the peninsula of Mumbai, Antilia is hard to miss. It is the private residence of Indian billionaire businessman Mukesh Ambani. He and his family moved into Antilia in 2012. The twenty-seven store, 568-foot-tall, 400,000 square foot residence has three helipads with air traffic control.

Mukesh Ambani @vtlj / @EconomicTimes /

It has a 168-car garage, ballroom, nine high speed elevators, a fifty-seat theater, swimming pool and spa, terrace gardens, health center, temple, and a snow room that spits out fake snowflakes from the walls. Antilia is one of the largest, most opulent private homes in the world. Before the mega-mansion was constructed, the 1,120-acre property was a charity-run orphanage.

99. Tom Brady & Giselle

Location: Billionaire Bunker, Miami, Florida

Purchased: $17 million*

Current Value: TBD (Demolition Planned)

As anyone who is a fan of the NFL knows, Tom Brady left the Patriots. He now plays for the Buccaneers in Tampa Bay, and, as a result, he and his wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, have moved down to Florida. They don’t live in Tampa Bay, but they did purchase a $17 million house in Miami.

Tom Brady & Giselle @07q513b3j204bvw / | ©Sky Cinema /

The home is located in Indian Creek Village, which is a high-security private island. Indian Creek has been nicknamed “Billionaire Bunker” because of all of the high-net-worth celebrities and business people who live there. It remains to be seen what Brady and his wife will do with the property, as they’re planning to tear down the mansion that’s already there and build a new one.

100. Demi Moore

Location: Nammos, Mykonos, Greece

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $5,000 per day for a private cabana*

In the summer of 2021, actress Demi Moore was spotted living it up in Mykonos with her daughter, Rumer Willis. The two were vacationing at Nammos, a popular region of Mykonos. They enjoyed all that the island had to offer, soaking up the sun and lounging with a few of their friends.

Demi Moore @greekcitytimes / | ©Kathy Hutchins /

Moore wasn’t just there for a beach vacation. She also attended a traditional Greek christening where she became the godmother of a baby girl in Sitia. The baptism occurred at Agios Nikolaos, a Greek orthodox church in the Cretan port town. Moore joined two other godmothers in blessing the baby at the beautiful ceremony.

101. Brooke Shields

Location: Emerald Island, New York

Purchased: $7.5 million*

Current Value: $10 million*

Actress Brooke Shields no doubt enjoyed the peace and solitude of Emerald Island, her 8.5-acre island that is off the coast of New York. Shields owned a rustic estate on Emerald Island, which cost $7.5 million in 1999. Her Old English estate contained a lot of chimneys and old wood paneling, which created a peaceful ambiance.

Brooke Shields @vladiislands / | ©Everett Collection /

The island came with a small, private dam lined with trees that connected the island to the shore. The island sits in the middle of the blue-watered Chazy Lake, which is part of the Adirondacks, a popular site for hiking, fishing, and sightseeing.

102. Alia Bhatt

Location: The Maldives

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $9,500-$13,000 per week to stay*

Indian actress Alia Bhatt is a Bollywood superstar, and she has a net worth of nearly $37 million. She can afford a lot of high-end vacations, including one recent one to the Maldives. The Kalank actress went with a group of her friends to the Maldives, which has been a favorite vacation spot of Bollywood stars like Sidharth Malhotra and Ishaan Katter.

Alia Bhatt @sinceindependenceofficial / | @bombaytimes /

The Maldives is known for its clear water, picturesque sunsets, and white sandy beaches. Pretty much every celebrity has ventured there, and it’s not cheap. For a luxury vacation, you’ll pay $9,500 to $13,000 for the week.

103. Tiger Shroff

Location: The Maldives

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $9,500-$13,000 per week to stay*

Another Bollywood celebrity to hit the Maldives for vacation is Tiger Shroff. He has starred in the Baghi franchise, as well as films like Heropanti. His upcoming film, Heropanti 2, is already getting a lot of hype. The actor took a Diwali vacation to the Maldives recently, taking Disha Patani, a fellow Bollywood actor, with him.

Tiger Shroff @MirnaSoviana / @tigersaesthetic /

Shroff jokingly posted on social media about the vacation, sharing a shirtless picture of him standing next to a private jet. His caption read, “Dress code for the next couple days,” referring, no doubt, to the sun he’d get while in the Maldives, one of the beachiest places in the world.

104. Jeremy Irons

Location: Ireland


Current Value: Unknown

Jeremy Irons isn’t in the headlines much as he isn’t typically the type of actor that attracts scandal. However, in early 2022, Irons became a subject of interest when he told Seth Meyers that he is the proud owner of a small island in Ireland.

Kilcoe Castle | Jeremy Irons ©Daniele COSSU/

The island is very close to the castle Irons bought back in 1998, so he can “just about swim there” according to the star. The actor revealed plans to populate the small island with cattle and ponies to keep it tidy.

105. Steve Martin

Location: Property on Saint Barts

Purchased: 2007

Current Value: $7.78 million*

For a while, comedian and actor Steve Martin owned a beautiful, 3,000-square-foot village on St. Barts, a Caribbean island preferred by the rich and famous. The four-bedroom villa was listed for $7.78 million, though the final sale price was kept private by Martin and his lucky buyer.

Steve Martin ©Everett Collection / @sandandsun0129/

The residence is set atop a hill, so anyone staying there gets gorgeous views of the Caribbean Sea below. There is also a covered entertainment area, as well as a two-tier swimming pool. Considering how expensive a resort is at St. Barth’s, it’s probably cheaper to buy property there if you’re a frequent vacationer.

106. Gordon Ramsey

Location: The Maldives

Purchased: Visited 2022

Current Value: $1,000 per night*

It is estimated that celebrity chef and reality television star Gordon Ramsey earns around $90 million a year, so it is safe to assume that he can take his family on quite a few nice vacations. In January of 2022, Ramsay spent New Year at Amilla Maldives Resort & Residences, one of the most popular resort destinations on the island.

Gordon Ramsey @maldives/

The all-inclusive resort is among the best in the world, and it is pretty expensive. According to sources, a room there costs around $1,000 a night. At the resort, you get your choice of island home that overlooks the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Baa Atoll.

107. Bruce Willis

Location: Property On Turks and Caicos

Purchased: 2000

Current Value: $37.5 million*

Parrot Cay, located in Turks and Caicos, a Caribbean Island that hosts tons of wealthy vacationers every year, is the site of The Residence. The Residence is a massive estate, priced at nearly $40 million, that was once owned by retired action movie star Bruce Willis.

Bruce Willis ©PAN Photo Agency / @elledecor/

The beachfront property has 18,000 feet of living space and the same amount of exterior decking. The twelve-bedroom, fourteen-bath complex consists of three hardwood-clad properties, making it the perfect vacation destination for Willis and his expansive family. Willis bought the property in 2000, and it is where he and his wife, Emma, got married nearly a decade later.

108. Sean Connery

Location: Porto Heli, Greece

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $2,385/week to visit*

Forbes described Porto Heli as the “best-kept secret” in Greece. It is located a few hours away from Athens, and celebrities like Sean Connery and Roman Abramovic have partied there. Porto Heli impressed Connery in particular, as he first visited the location in 2001 and was dismayed that he never visited the “unbelievable place” earlier.

Sean Connery ©Anton_Ivanov | Sven Hansche/

The former James Bond was particularly fond of Porto Heli, a summer resort town that is a safe, family-oriented place to vacation in Greece. It’s also a private yacht hotspot, as many visitors moor these luxury boats at the Porto Heli marina to go on excursions into the Saronic Gulf.

109. Pierce Brosnan

Location: Tetiaroa, French Polynesia

Purchased: Visited 2018

Current Value: $2,400-$2,700 per night*

Tetiaroa is an atoll located in the Society Islands of French Polynesia. It was once the vacation spot of royalty from Tahiti, and it still welcomes well-known guests every year, including Pierce Brosnan, who visited the atoll in 2018, posting pictures of the beautiful beaches alongside the Pacific Ocean.

Pierce Brosnan @people/

Famous for its natural beauty, Tetiaroa is not a cheap vacation. To visit the island and stay at The Brando, a luxury resort where Brosnan may have stayed, you’ll pay as much as $2,400 to $2,700 per night. And if you’re wondering about the name, yes the Brando was once owned by actor Marlon Brando.

110. Liam Neeson

Location: Anguilla

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $2,000-$3,000/week for a vacation*

Actor Liam Neeson is a longtime veteran of Anguilla, as he and his family, including his late wife Natasha, have gone to the island many times before. There is even a review of a popular restaurant on the island, Trattoria Tramonto, that mentions that the diner saw Neeson dining there.

Liam Neeson ©Tinseltown | Rob G Films/

A seven-day trip to Anguilla can cost anywhere from $2,000 to $3,000, depending on where you are staying. If you’re a fan of beaches and turquoise waters, however, that price is worth it. Even if you’re not a beach person, you can still hang around at landmarks like the Big Spring Cave (famous for its prehistoric petroglyphs) and East Pond, a wildlife reserve.

111. Keith Richards

Location: Turks and Caicos

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: Est. $9 million*

Keith Richards might have a reputation as a wild rockstar partier, but he has his head on straight when it comes to his finances. The English singer-songwriter knows that real estate is the best way to get a side income, and his Rocky Point Villa, located in Parrot Cay of Turks and Caicos, is a gold mine.

Keith Richards ©Tinseltown | Ariane27/

You can rent the three-bedroom home for $5,400 a night. If you want to rent it for a week, that will cost $37,800. Located at the very edge of Parrot Cay, the villa has two acres of beach access, an infinity pool, a butler, floor-to-ceiling windows, and pretty much anything else you’d need to have a luxury vacation.

112. Rowan Atkinson

Actor Rowan Atkinson is best known for his roles in British comedies like Mr. Bean and Johnny English. He has a net worth of $150 million as a result of his time on TV and in movies. The actor can afford any luxury vacation he wants, including one to Andros, Greece, one of the most beautiful locations in the country.

Rowan Atkinson ©/

Not only does Atkinson love visiting Andros, he also owns property there. Atkinson joins the long list of celebrities, including Julia Roberts, Sean Connery, Tom Hanks, and more who have bought a property in Greece. The average home price in Andros is around $250,000 to $350,000.

113. Kate Hudson

Location: Hawaii

Purchased: Visited 2017

Current Value: $1,864 to vacation for a week*

It’s easy to see why people go to Hawaii for vacation. The U.S. state is 2,000 miles away from the hustle and bustle of America, and it is famous for its sandy beaches, lush vegetation, and island paradise vibe. Celebrities like Kate Hudson have vacationed there for years.

Kate Hudson @dailymail/

Just recently in 2017, Hudson was spotted frolicking in the ocean in Oahu with her sons. Of course, the media were quick to report that she hung out in one of the most beautiful locations on earth. Thinking about going to Oahu? The cost of a seven-day vacation there is, on average, $1,864 per person.

114. Jimmy Buffet

Location: Saint Barts

Purchased: 1978-Present

Current Value: $1,000-$3,000 per night* (Eden Rock Resort Price)

In 1978, singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett visited St. Barths on a whim, and he immediately fell in love with the island. He loved what he saw, and he returned all the time to surf, write songs and books, and celebrate Christmas and his birthday.

Jimmy Buffet ©Kathy Hutchins / Todd Gordon/

The entertainer-slash-business-mogul wrote many songs while he was staying at Eden Rock Resort, and he even rented a home there to help out with supply delivery during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Buffett still returns to St. Barths to perform, and he is so involved with the island that he could probably run for mayor there and win.

115. Arnold Schwarzenegger

Location: Lake Como

Purchased: N/A

Current Value: $1,542/week for vacation*

Lake Como has been the province of world leaders, artists, and Old Hollywood actors for decades. When George Clooney bought a home there in 2002, he put the Italian retreat in the spotlight, and now, celebrities like Tom Cruise, Rupert Murdoch, Bill Gates, and Arnold Schwarzenegger have visited and vacationed there, following the star’s lead.

Arnold Schwarzenegger ©Joe Seer | Gaspar Janos/

Lake Como is the “ritziest region” in Italy, and it is also one of the most beautiful, consisting of forested mountains, a huge lake, and a lot of Renaissance architecture. It costs $1,542 for a week-long vacation for a solo traveler, assuming you’re not staying anywhere too fancy.

116. Will Smith

Location: Corfu

Purchased: Visited 2017

Current Value: $2,500/week to visit*

Corfu is a Grecian island located in the Ionian Sea, and it is defined by its beaches and rugged mountains. The shoreline is studded with resorts, and you can tell that the Venetians and French designed a lot on the island before it was united with the country of Greece in the 1860s.

Will Smith ©usmagazine / | @chriskaridis /

Because of its beauty, Corfu has attracted visitors from all over the world, including actor Will Smith. The I Am Legend star holidayed in Corfu in 2017, and he and his family not only vacationed there, they also cleaned up beaches on nearby Antipaxi and Paxi, two islands also in the middle of the Ionian.

Location: Jamaica

Purchased: Unknown

Current Value: N/A

British journalist and fashion icon Anna Wintour has been in the public eye since 1988, when she took the position as the Editor in Chief of the fashion magazine Vogue. Though Wintour works hard, she takes breaks here and there, going on vacation just like the rest of us.

Anna Wintour ©DKSStyle | Lucky-photographer/

Sometimes, she even works in a vacation setting.

The lovebirds became “IG official” in April of 2021, right before their vacation, when they shared a post of the two sharing a smooch. The young couple picked a great vacation getaway to spend alone time, as St. Barts is known for its luxe designer shops, white sand beaches, and great night life.

Location: Lambert Island, Canada

Purchased: 1916

Current Value: $10 million*

We’ve all heard of the Wright Brothers, and Orville Wright was one-half of that aviation-pioneering pair. Orville Wright was able to make quite a lot of money through his invention, and he actually owned a private island called Lambert Island from 1916 to 1941. He often visited Lambert with his sister, Katharine, and the two would cruise around in a 32-foot mahogany boat that Wright purchased in 1931.

Called the Kittyhawk and built by Gidley Boat Works, the vessel was a common sight in Lake Superior, the waters surrounding the Thunder Bay, Ontario island. To this day, Kittyhawk is still in use, reminding everyone of the Wright Brothers’ historic flight in 1903 (though Orville no longer owns the island, nor does his estate).

In 1974, Sir Harold Mitchell, a businessman and British politician, visited the Fijian island of Nananu-i-Cake, located near the coast of Viti Levu.

Mitchell has a main residence on the island, and he abandoned it when he sold Nananu-i-Cake for $10 million around a decade ago. The Fijian oasis garnered renewed attention in 2022 when a group of cryptocurrency owners and supporters attempted to raise money to buy the island and turn it into “Cryptoland.” Their plan failed, and it was widely mocked on social media, though Nananu-i-Cake did get its deserved recognition from the debacle.

SJP arrived incognito in Greece, but she was spotted on a ferry traveling to Syros, according to Tornos. Also known as Syra, Syros is known for being a wealthy, beautiful island with a peaceful atmosphere that includes beach bars and jazz performances. To get there, you have to take a ferry, as Parker did, from Piraeus in Athens. The boat ride is around two and a half hours, if you’re traveling in a high-speed ferry. If you’re taking a traditional vessel, be prepared to be on the water for four hours.

There was even a rumor that the pair were getting married on the island, but that turned out to be false.

Flash might have been a little late to the hip-hop scene compared to some of his peers, but he’s also one of the few people from the early days of hip-hop who is still on tour even in 2023. He’s one of the people that Barbadians are proud of even today.

Tyra Banks is just one of the many A-list individuals who likes spending her vacation days on the island because who wouldn’t?

Anguilla is a preferred vacation spot by many celebrities, including Justin Timberlake. The singer loves the place so much that he even referenced it in one of his songs, My Love. This island might not be the most famous celebrity getaway, which is why so many of them love coming here for low-key vacations.

Justin Timberlake @TravelLeisure/Pinterest | @Google/Pinterest

Despite its luxurious outlook, the island is not as expensive as other options on this list. There are B&Bs under $200 a night, which is perfect for budget travelers.

187. Crown Prince William

Location: Mustique

Purchased: Visits frequently
Current Value: $20,000 per vacation*

Gwen Stefani @1800yachtcharte/Pinterest

One thing that people find daunting is that it has no direct flights from the US, which means you have to figure out alternate travel plans.

This travel pathway makes it best for celebrity vacations out of the limelight.

When Sandra Bullock visited the island with her son in 2010, she stayed at the Viceroy Anguilla, which can cost up to $795 per night or even more. The actress was seen enjoying a load of tropical cocktails and having the time of her life, as would anyone if they were on this stunning island.
