What do you do when you are a celebrity with an extra $10 million lying around? Some of the world’s most famous actors, musicians and athletes bought their own private islands. Some use their islands as a paparazzi-free getaway, while others rent out their islands to wealthy travellers, or else let it out as a precious gift.
5. Gerrard Pique
Though the Barcelona talisman is only estimated a $40 million net worth, he is lucky enough to have Shakira ($220 million) as a partner. The couple bought an island of Bonds Cay, north of the Bahamas. They have reportedly developed a resort for multi-millionaires.

Johnny Depp owns a 45-acre tropical island called Little Hall’s Pond Cay in the Caribbean. The actor says that Marlon Brando taught him how to buy an island. On buying a private island, he was quoted:
“Money doesn’t buy you happiness, but it buys you a big enough yacht to sail right up to it.”
3. Cristiano Ronaldo
Back in 2015, the multi-millionaire Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo bought a Greek island, only to offer it to his agent Jorge Mendes as a wedding present, media reports confirmed.
