Florida Has One of the Most Affordable Private Islands in the World
Wouldn’t it be cool to own your own island? You could just get away from everything when you felt like it and be circled by the peace and calm of the water. I remember having a friend in school whose family owned their very own island. They seemed to have the best vacations on that island. As it turns out, Florida has one of the most affordable private islands in the world. Here’s the lowdown.
Slingo.com has released a list of the most affordable private islands in the world. “Many of us working a standard nine-to-five job wonder and wish at the prospect of being incomprehensibly rich,” they state. “To own a super flashy car, the finest clothes you could ask for, perhaps even your own private island.” But, maybe you don’t have to be super rich to own an island.
Slingo, one of the U.K.’s leading bingo sites, researched the prices of the private islands currently available for purchase. “This allowed us to see where in the world it is the most affordable for you to buy a private island of your own,” they explain. They also looked at the average cost of a private island against the cost of a U.K. home. So, what’s the result?
World’s Most Affordable Private Islands
The most affordable island in the world is La Cornelia Island in Nicaragua. Its market price is £70,829, which is about $90,000. Not bad for your own island. “The island already has electricity, despite it being undeveloped, and is rich with palm and mango trees,” Slingo adds. Nice. One Florida island made the cut. It’s Sweetheart Island in Florida, tied with It’s The Carolina Cayes, both at No. 8 on this list. Sweetheart Island runs about £314,009, which is about $400,000 dollars.
