Want to own your own island?

  • Private islands aren't just for millionaires.

    While it may seem like one of the trappings of being super-rich, kicking back on your own island beach doesn't have to cost millions of dollars -- as long as you don't expect all the luxuries of living on the mainland, like electricity. River islands, lake islands and little islands off the coast in the Northeast go for anywhere from $40,000 to just under a million.

    Tropical islands, most of which are located off the coast of South Florida, are a little rarer, and more expensive, with one running over the $100 million mark.

    Check out these 10 islands on the market around the country.
