There are many thousands of own-able private islands currently in the world. There are a lot of benefits and concerns that come with owning an island. Islands tend to have fragile eco-systems to begin with, so developing on one can cause ecological devastation. Many private island owners also keep a livestock within their island because of the expensive transportation costs. With an island the livestock would not be able to run away either. There are opportunities to buy a private island that is already developed with roads and structures, but there are still much more that are not developed yet. There have been multiple attempt at claiming an island in order to form a micro-nation, yet all have been fails. I dream of one day owning a private island, who doesn’t?
