Google co-founder Larry Page trying to buy up every private island in the world?

12:22, February 7

Google co-founder Larry Page is apparently trying to buy up all the private islands in the world—or at least a significant portion of them.

Page bought the 300-acre Cayo Norte island in Puerto Rico, the Business Insider reported. According to the respective documents, Page acquired it through US Virgin Island Properties back in 2018. At the time, he paid a whopping $32 million for the site, which is considered the largest private island in all of Puerto Rico. The off-market deal included a larger parcel of land for $28.7 million and a smaller parcel for $3.4 million.

The former CEO currently owns five private islands scattered throughout the Caribbean and South Pacific. Specifically, he reportedly owns Tavarua Island in Fiji and Eustatia Island in the British Virgin Islands, not far from Richard Branson's Necker Island. In 2014, Page spent $23 million to acquire Hans Lollik and Little Hand Lollik in the US Virgin Islands.

As for his latest purchase, Cayo Norte is located about 20 nautical miles east of Puerto Rico and off the coast of Culebra. This tropical resort has stunning white sand beaches, and the surrounding area is teeming with coral reefs and wildlife, including endangered sea turtles.

Before Page, Cayo Norte was owned by local developer Dan Shelley since 2006.
