Everybody’s doing it. From Hollywood’s Johnny Depp and Mel Gibson to tycoons like Sir Richard Branson, owning a private island ranks even higher than luxury planes, boats, or automobiles. At any given time, more than 200 islands around the globe are on the market. So why not enjoy the ultimate privacy? You can do whatever you want: Walk on the beach naked. Eat fresh lobster. Sleep 12 hours a day. ¶ But not everybody is sitting on millions in disposable income. Fortunately for you, many islands can be rented by the day, week, or month. For the fraction of the purchase price, you can enjoy jet-set island living and let someone else deal with the plumbing and generators.
