We all love a beachy vacation, but the millionaires and billionaires on this list take that to a new extreme by owning their own private island. Why just rent the sun and surf when you can buy it? Owning your own private island is the ultimate status symbol of the rich and famous.
The ultra-rich, including CEOs of companies like Virgin Galactic, actors, supermodels, singers, and reality stars, have all snagged a piece of paradise by investing in their own private island. Though some bought their islands to develop into super luxurious resorts, most of the celebrities on this list bought their islands solely to kick back and relax.
