The island up for sale

Concierge Auctions

Ever dreamed of owning your own private island in the Caribbean? Well, this auction for one in the Bahamas might be one for you to keep your eye on.

St Andrew’s, better known as Little Ragged Island is currently for sale and has no reserve price. You will need to put in a $100,000 deposit (£71,000) but otherwise, its a sheer bargain.

“We have received a great amount of interest in the auction so far, which is expected for this one of kind opportunity.” Laura Brady, the owner of the company Concierge Auctions hosting the sale, told CNN Travel. According to the New York Times, demand for islands like these has raised during the pandemic.

It could be a complete bargain for the island showcases 730 acres of, white sandy beaches lapped by clear blue waters and all the potential for developing into a tropical paradise.

It’s remote but not too far away as its only a ten-minute boat ride to nearby Ragged Island that hosts a plane airstrip allowing you jet off quickly.

It also hosts freshwater ponds and amazing snorkelling. Local fish include grouper, snapper, barracuda, tuna and kingfish, meaning a fresh tasty dinner is always on the cards.

Love hiking? You are also covered as you can climb hills that will put you 12 meters above sea level.

If you want to channel your inner real estate mogul, there is potential for a boutique resort, complete with its own golf course. If you want to crank up the sinister levels, you could instead build a lair that would make a Bond villain pea-green with envy.

Concierge Auctions’ clients include celebs as high profile Cher and Michael Jordan. Bidding begins on 26 March, closing on 31 March.
