Little Pipe Cay, the stunning private island in the Bahamas that served as a filming location for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and James Bond’s Casino Royale, has been listed for sale with an eye-popping price tag of $100 million.
Spanning 40 acres, this Caribbean paradise offers breathtaking vistas and luxurious amenities fit for a celebrity or high-roller.
Located in the Exumas, an archipelago renowned for its natural beauty and vibrant marine life, Little Pipe Cay boasts fine-white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters affectionately referred to as “Bombay-Sapphire Blue” by the locals.
The tropical landscape is teeming with exotic plants and animals, including dolphins and sea turtles, creating an idyllic setting for nature lovers.
The island features top-notch facilities designed for convenience and indulgence, such as a helipad, a seaplane dock, and a deep-water dock that can accommodate superyachts.
Its 492sq m main residence, four guest cottages, and accommodation quarters for staff offer over 2043sq m of interior space, comprising 11 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
With peaked roofs, high-beam ceilings, hardwood floors, and expansive windows, the classic architectural style seamlessly blends with the surroundings, allowing residents to enjoy the panoramic views and pleasant weather.
While much of the island remains untouched to attract local wildlife, tasteful gardens and an Olympic-sized infinity pool provide an alternative landscape for relaxation amidst the tropical splendour.
Additionally, jet skis and kayaks are included with the property. Currently operating as a rental resort, the island commands nightly rental prices ranging from $75,000 to $95,000.
The sale of Little Pipe Cay includes the right to further develop the island, making it a versatile investment opportunity or a private vacation haven.
Little Pipe Cay’s proximity to Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, positions it as a highly accessible retreat, lying only 112km away.
The Exumas, with their extensive off-shore coral reefs, offer unparalleled opportunities for snorkelling and scuba diving.
The chain of 365 islands remains largely uninhabited, with only 1500 full-time residents in George Town, the capital of the Exumas.
The area’s rich history dates back to 1783 when loyalists fleeing the American Revolutionary War settled there, honouring King George III by naming the capital after him.
Notorious pirates, including Captain Kidd, sought refuge in the Exumas until the 18th century.
Private islands have experienced a surge in interest among the global elite, and Little Pipe Cay’s neighbouring islands count renowned figures like David Copperfield, Tyler Perry, and Johnny Depp among their owners.
