If an Italian businessman can buy a haunted island for €400,000 ($545,900), imagine what you can get for less than a million dollars U.S.
Fancy a palm-laden paradise in French Polynesia? A second home in the Bahamas? An entire island in Alaska? (That’s a pine paradise, not to be confused with a palm paradise.) It’s yours.
We found a wide variety on Private Islands Online—take a look.
