Here 6 Celebrities and Their Amazing Private Island

We all like to run away sometimes, looking for a respite from the countless responsibilities. The thing with celebrities is – they have the resources to do it with a touch classier than what were used to. Two words: private islands.

Just until we can afford these slices of heaven ourselves, were content to lust after those whove created their own getaways all over the world:

1. Little Halls Pond Cay, Caribbean – Johnny Depp

Having bought the unique hideaway for $3.6 million back in 2004, Depp has named the beaches in on his territory after Gonzo for Hunter S. Thompson, his children Lily Rose and Jack, and Brando, after his mentor, Marlon Brando, whom he also says taught him how to buy an island.

Reportedly having purchased Mago Island in 2005 for a whopping $9M, the 5,400 acres is one of the largest privately-owned islands in the South Pacific, and is practically its own country! Save for a few Fijian caretakers, this ones Gibsons own kingdom in every sense, which he thankfully intends to leave in its natural flourishing state.

In 2011, singer, performer and bellydancer Shakira, Spanish popstar Alejandro Sanz and Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters got together to buy the island of Bonds Cay, located north of the Bahamas, for a hefty US $16 million; boasting of sprawling private beaches, an 18-hole golf course and art galleries.
