The island of the spectacular Little Pipe, belonging to the archipelago of Exuma in The Bahamas, is one of the islands most used by Hollywood for its recordings, such as ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ or ‘James Bond: Casino Royale’. Now, this natural area has sold for $100 million.
The rare property has 40 hectares of natural paradise, called ‘Bombay-Sapphire Blue’, which can accommodate up to 22 guests. Ever since it hit the market, it’s been the ultimate Caribbean luxury, which was first put up for sale in 2018 for $85 million.
How is Little Pipe Cay?
The private island features four plantation-style homes: Manor House, Harbor Master, Beach Cottage, Buttonwood and Sea Grape Estate, each with 11 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. The main house has an Olympic-sized pool, as well as a private gym and spa.
As if that weren’t enough, it also includes a helipad, a seaplane and a deep-water dock that can accommodate superyachts. Jet skis and kayaks are included in the purchase, the ad advises.
The island is one of the 365 islands of the Exumas, a 130 km long archipelago in the Bahamas. Colin Lightbourne, Licensed Partner of Engel & Volkers Bahamas, explained to Elite Traveler that “the island has been left in as natural a state as possible and is home to many exotic plants and wildlife. The sand is ultra-fine and white, the water crystal clear and the tiny neighbors Islands can be seen in the distance.
“Although the market for private islands is comparatively small, demand has increased significantly since 2020. Little Pipe is perfect as a family retreat or a sound investment,” he said. It is said that a possible buyer of the property could be celebrity Kim Kardashian, 42.
