Ever dream of owning your own island? Now you can, for a cool $85 million. But before you write it off as overpriced, what really makes this island special goes far beyond its white-sand beaches and clear blue waters. The Island is located in Exumas, the Caribbean backdrop for movies like “Thunderball,” a 007 flick starring Sean Connery as James Bond, and two installments of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.

Yes, that’s right, the lucky buyer of this beautiful piece of land will sail the same waters as Captain Jack Sparrow. And by sail we do mean sail, because the island is only accessible by boat (or seaplane.)

The 38-acre island, called Little Pipe Cay — also known as White Cay or Sandy Cay — was uninhabited until 15 years ago when the current owners bought the land. Now, five beautiful houses sit on the property, complete with enough bedrooms and bathrooms to house all your friends (nine of each to be exact), security, pools, a spa, and your very own staff to run it all.

The private paradise is located about 270 miles away from Florida and only two miles away from Big Major Cay, home of the famous swimming pigs. Don’t worry, if you ever get bored in your very own slice of paradise, you could always go check out the newly finished Baha Mar.
