When we hear the words ‘private island’ we think of actors like Leonardo DiCaprio or Johnny Depp who own them. Basically, we think of billionaires who have earned enough to spend on owning their very own island. But, recently there has been a change in the private island real estate.

There are many that have become quite affordable for the general public and anyone who doesn’t mind spending around $100,000 could be the rightful owner of one right now. But, there are some islands that are being sold for less than $80,000 that no one wants to buy. Are you wondering why?

2Why no one is buying it?

This island is protected from inclement weather which is the reason why August is the warmest month and the average temperature is just 16°C. In February the temperature drops to 8°C. Another big issue about this island is that the only road connecting it to the mainland is visible during low tide and during high tide, it gets submerged by water.
