What could be better than having your own piece of land, where you can grow crops, set up a farm, have fun with your family… Only one thing is better than that – a private freaking paradise island! Naturally, chumps like me or you, who can barely afford a BigMac, will never get our own island, but celebs are a whole other breed of customers.
Here are 9 rich celebs who own luxurious private islands!
1. Mel Gibson
Good old Australian crazy man Mel Gibson. But crazy doesn’t mean poor. On the contrary, he made enough moolah to buy the Mago island (5,400 acres) for 15 million dollars some 15 years ago. Five thousand acres! SMH
2. Ricky Martin
11 years ago, when Ricky Martin was still a thing, he decided to purchase the Angra dos Reis island in Brazil for $8 mil. I wonder how he’s doing today…
These 700 acres of prime land called Bonds Cay (Bahamas, of course) cost her $16 mil. That’s probably all Shakira had at that time.
