Many of us nowadays wonder if we’ll ever afford a home. Of course, for those living The Life Elite, other considerations must be made, like should you or shouldn’t you buy an island? Here are the lucky ducks who swim around on their own beaches.

Larry Ellison

He loves to sail and he’s one of the richest people in the world. It’s no surprise that billionaire Larry Ellison owns an island in Hawaii.

 

Mel Gibson

Mel bought Mago Island (pictured above) in 2005. The Fiji island has been a nice retreat for the controversial actor, who often needs to find refuge from his (cough) outbursts.

 

Johnny Depp

Johnny truly is Captain Jack Sparrow. The A-list actor has taken his character to a whole other level. Of all places in the world, Captain Depp owns an island in the Caribbean.

 

Tyler Perry

The actor, writer, director and famed on-camera cross dresser owns an island in White Bay Cay. And no, he doesn’t sunbathe as Madea.

Richard Branson

This guy owns pretty much everything. He’s bringing the world commercial space flight, after all. The king of Virgin owns his own tropical spot called Necker Island.

 

Eddie Murphy

This one even surprised us! He was great in his prime then sort of fell off the map, but Eddie Murphy isn’t having a hard time. In fact, he spends a lot of it on his island in the Bahamas.

Celine Dion

She’s the only woman on the list, so we saved her for last! Celine Dion owns an island in Quebec. She bought the retreat, known as Ile Gagnon, for $29.7 million.
