bahamas private islands

Celebrity, Movie Stars, The World's Most Exclusive Property

There is nothing more exclusive and sought after in the world than having your own private island; it becomes effectively your own little kingdom. From Riccardo Montalban's Fantasy Island to Dr. No's Crab Key, private islands are exactly that - private. Roberto Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman loved the Italian island of Stromboli. Princess Margaret found peace and quiet on the island of Mustique. Richard Branson, Marlon Brando and Malcolm Forbes (whose Laucala Island in Fiji was sold for $10 million) all created their own Private Island Kingdoms for peace, privacy and tranquility. Some companies buy islands for corporate getaways or to hold seminars. The quickening pace of the information age and technology, making it easier to stay in touch from afar, means that demand from harried professionals for remote getaways is unlikely to fade.
