When it comes to finding your own little slice of paradise, those with deep pockets need look no further.

A private island in the Bahamas is up for sale, offering reams of sandy shoreline, azure waters, lush greenery and an array of amenities.

Little Pipe Cay is a freehold island found in the archipelago nation's Exumas chain, around 115 kilometres from the capital of Nassau, and is accessible by seaplane.

Sprawling across 38 acres, the island comes with a palatial nine-bedroom and nine-bathroom main residence, as well as a number of outbuildings and cottages, and myriad leisure options.

The main home comes with a large pool, gym and spa, and is fully furnished. As one might expect from an island home, the property also comes with "numerous" moorings, for its new owners to likely house their numerous sea vessels.

A sea barn, meanwhile, comes with boats and water sports equipment, while cottages, which are sprinkled across the island, "all have incredible seascape views", with some on the edge of "pristine private beaches".

"With raw natural beauty as a foundation, the current owners have, over the last 15 years, thoughtfully moulded and created the perfect private island home in one of the most naturally beautiful island chains in the world," reads the property listing at Knight Frank.

"Little Pipe Cay is the crown jewel of the Exumas and one of the top private islands in the Bahamas, if not in the Caribbean."

The real-estate agency, which has given a guide price of $85 million (Dh312 million) for Little Pipe Cay, originally put the island up for sale last summer, though it was relisted at the end of April.

The island even has A-list connections, forming the backdrop of scenes in 1965's James Bond film Thunderball and two Pirates of the Caribbean movies, reports Travel and Leisure magazine.
