Nowadays, the trend of buying your own private islands is not only reserved for the insanely rich and famous. Having to wake up surrounded by exotic sights, take a walk on your private sandy beach, crack open a coconut from your backyard and just being able to call a whole island your home is a dream coming true for many people.
Starting from $100,000, you too can enjoy the perks of having your own piece of land surrounded by water if you bother to do the research and invest smart.
The record for the most expensive, wholly owned private island goes to Aga Khan who bought the exquisite Bell Island in the Bahamas for $100 million back in 2009.
