A breathtaking private island in the Bahamas, featured in movies starring Johnny Depp and James Bond, has recently come on the market for $100 million.
In addition to earning more than $650 million at the box office, “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” introduced the world to Johnny Depp’s eccentric Pirate Jack Sparrow, generated four sequels, and has a fifth in the works with producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Although the film’s primary sets were constructed in Los Angeles, the sweeping vistas of its fantastical pirate world were shot in the actual Caribbean, particularly at Little Pipe Cay, a magnificent private island in the Bahamas.
The island also appeared in “Casino Royale,” a film from the venerable James Bond series, while Sean Connery’s “Thunderball” was filmed in a nearby cay. For $100 million, a 40-acre private paradise is on the market.
Fine white sand beaches can be found on Little Pipe Cay, which also has waters that residents refer to as “Bombay-Sapphire Blue.” The tropical environment is home to a variety of exotic flora and animals, such as dolphins and sea turtles. The island has a helipad, a seaplane port, and a deep-water dock that can handle superyachts, making it the ideal luxurious escape for a celebrity or high roller. Over 22,000 square feet of interior space, including 11 bedrooms and 12 baths, are provided by a 5,300-square-foot main residence, four guest cottages, and staff housing. Peaked roofs, high-beam ceilings, hardwood floors, and lots of glass provide a traditional design that makes the most of the area’s breathtaking views and pleasant climate.
An Olympic-sized infinity pool and beautiful gardens provide an alternative setting for unwinding and admiring the island’s tropical environment, even though much of the island has been left in a natural state perfect for attracting local birds and wildlife. The resort comes with kayaks and jet skis. The island is also being sold with the right to further develop it.
The island, which is a part of the Exumas archipelago, is situated 70 miles from Nassau, the Bahamas’ capital. The chain of 365 islands, which has huge offshore coral reefs and is a fantastic location for snorkeling and scuba diving, is mostly uninhabited, with only 1,500 people living there full-time in George Town, the capital.
