Right now there is tons of activity in the Private Island market in the Bahamas right now. At the moment there are three private island auctions going on.
One is for a group of cays in the North Abaco Chain being sold at Auction in the very near future. This is going to be one of those rare chances to buy real paradise for a fraction of the value. Big Grand Cay and its group of cays are spectacular setting and one of those rare playgrounds of sand sea and water that could be entirely yours. A total of 11 different islands, think of the potential to have a cottage on each one and rent out a little private island to honeymooners, with fully serviced amenities. The down side is the area is a bit remote but a Cesna Caravan can land at nearby Walkers Cay without a hitch.
check it out here:
have a look in the Cruising Guide to Abaco, it is one of the hot spot destinations for Anglers heading to Abaco for Fishing. and a key stop off for waterbourne commuters travelling between Abaco and Florida.
Also on Auction is Innocence Island in the Exuma Chain, a large private island with a very rare private runway. The Bahamas government has put a restriction on it and will not allow anyone to build private airstrips anymore due to the logistics of controlling the airspace here (read US government influence). In any event this is a rare chance to buy a cay with private runway. check out the video here:
Otherwise, around Abaco there are some neat options to have a private kingdom in paradise.
Joes Cay, beautiful beaches and only $2.25M:
Bahama Cays, (formerly the artist known as Fish Cays) some unique features, almost completed mini boutique resort, could be great for the right person. all the hard work has already been done:
People have been wanting and trying to buy Johnnys Cay for decades, and now it is finally for sale. located between Elbow Cay (Hope Town) and Man O War Cay, you could not find a better strategic position for a private fiefdom anywhere in the world.
Cave Cay was the site of an attempted settlement many many decades ago. Had it survived it would have been another charming place to visit along with Hope Town or New Plymouth. It has caves and harbours and beaches and natural kaleidoscope of landscapes and waterscapes. it is just waiting for someone with vision to appreciate the natural beauty on offer:
And the much touted, much desired Sandy Cay (confusing but there are 3 Sandy Cays in the Abaco Chain) literally adjoining Man O War Cay. So you can have fresh baked bread every morning from MOW, swing by for lunch of hang out with the sail shop or boat building fellows. A unique proposition on offer, the cay has been lovingly enjoyed by 2 sets of extended families over the years. This is where family memories are made that will endure through to the grandkids of the grandkids. recently price adjusted to $8M, considering all the toys, boats and extras it is quite an attractive prospect.
Powells Cay is a developers delight. large, raw beauty with an excellent labour force minutes away, easy access to infrastructure, this spot is ripe for a unique getaway resort to be developed.
And lastly, Walkers Cay is a fabled island, the most northerly spot in the entire Bahamas. There is history and fellowship and stories upon stories about this place in its heyday. begging for someone to come along and redevelop it to its former glory days. Recreate the celebrated luxury fishing camp and marina of times gone by. plus government supplied electricity and water, private runway, and deep water channel.
