Data provider Wealth-X released its list of the wealthiest owners of luxury islands, valued at $10 million or more.
"Even though it may seem that some of these island properties are rustic or ordinary, you can expect the highest standard of security, privacy and exclusivity - with bespoke, contemporary amenities for these individuals, their families and friends," said Wealth-X CEO Mykolas Rambus.
