25 Most Expensive Islands

Everyone had at least once in their lifetime a dream to own a bigger piece of land or to own even a whole smaller country. Sadly, most of us can only dream about owning several square kilometers of land and whole countries. But, there are a few lucky people in this world who are financially able to own massive land areas, smaller countries, and even islands. Owning an island seems better than owning a small, landlocked country. Who wouldn’t love to have an island in the middle of the ocean to themselves? As we’ve previously said, there are people out there who actually buy actual islands and who have a pocket deep enough for that investment. Most islands available for sale are sold by the governments in whose ownership those islands are and who need a quick fix in their budget.

Just think about how people who own a private island feel and act – they rent a yacht to get to their private island or they even get there by their own yacht and they can do whatever they want on their island because it’s theirs. It belongs to them. They can build castles, amusement parks, resorts, hotels, and many other facilities on their private islands. Usually most of the private island owners opt for building family villas on their islands and nothing more so they could stay somewhere during their stay on their very own isle. In our list below of the 25 Most Expensive Islands, we will feature both islands that are available for sale and the islands that were already purchased by various celebrities and business moguls. Let’s have a look at the 25 Most Expensive Islands:

#25 – Montukod Island – Malaysia – $10.6 Million

This beautiful smaller island’s whereabouts are in Borneo. Montokud Island is one of the most beautiful islands of the Malaysian Archipelago and was put up for sale just recently by the Malaysian Government. This Malaysian island is abundant with both flora and fauna and it will also allow its future owner great possibilities when it comes to building various facilities. This island is very close to the shoreline of Kinarut.

This island can be all yours for the price of $10.6 Million and you’ll have the opportunity to make a lot of money through building a hotel on this island.
