Big Darby certainly has much to recommend it. There are no less than 14 white, sandy beaches distributed around the island’s 10,000 feet of coastline, all overlooking pristine seas. To get there, you can fly to Great Exuma International Airport, although you’ll obviously need a boat or a seaplane to travel the last 35 miles or so to your new purchase.
Your very own private island, should you decide to go ahead with the deal, covers some 500 acres, and is 87 feet above sea level at its highest point. Moreover, it’s even said to have a long unused airstrip. And given that you’re rich enough to buy Big Darby, you’ll likely want to bring that back into use for your private plane.
But what may well excite you the most about this $39 million island is the fact that it also boasts an 8,000 square-foot semi-derelict castle. It was built in 1938 and has some fascinating features. The castle also has some fascinating local folklore attached to it, which we’ll return to in a moment.
