Beyoncé, Jay-Z, & More Celebrities Who Have Private Islands All Their Own

A-list celebrities don’t just go on vacation, they head to their private islands for the ultimate getaway without the nuisance of the paparazzi or fans disrupting their holiday. In most cases, it takes some serious cash to buy hundreds of acres of land, but it’s worth it to those who can afford such a luxurious purchase — they can design the resort of their dreams in a tropical location.

You’ll notice many stars own islands in the Bahamas. It’s an easy location to travel to from the United States, but there are also some serious benefits to owning land here because the country is one of the top tax havens around the globe. That is an appealing place for millionaires to invest their money, and it’s why Julia Roberts, Eddie Murphy and Johnny Depp have all landed in the area. Depp described his love for his tropical paradise of Little Hall’s Pond Cay to Vanity Fair, “I don’t think I’d ever seen any place so pure and beautiful. You can feel your pulse rate drop about 20 beats. It’s instant freedom.

While most of the private islands are worth millions, and billions if you are Richard Branson, there is one affordable place owned by TV host Bear Grylls on this list. We have to warn you, though, it’s not only remote, but it’s also a no-frills place to reside. That might not be your speed, but we have a feeling you might want to check the other fancy residences because wealthy celebs sure know how to vacation in luxury.
