Five Islands You Can Buy In Florida

Five Islands You Can Buy In Florida

Have you ever dreamed of getting away from it all? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could buy your very own private island? You are probably thinking that isn’t possible. Or…maybe it is.

There are 23 magnificent islands here in Florida that are for sale, priced from $200,000 to $110,000,000. This blog is about 5 of them.

Hangover Island

Price: $200,000

Once home to Native Americans, this 40 acre island has an Indian Mound over 8 feet in elevation. Here you can find artifacts like arrowheads and pottery.

Hangover Island is centrally located between the Crystal River and the Homosassa River on the beautiful Saint Martins River. 

Crystal River is home of the world's largest Manatee sanctuary; all the local waterways have manatee. They migrate right past Hangover Island. The wildlife and fish populations abound, that's why they call this The Nature Coast of Florida. 

The St. Martins River has a marked channel - it is approximately 2 miles to the Gulf of Mexico and one mile to the town of Ozello. The quaint waterfront town of Ozello is located approximately 30 minutes to Ocala, 1 hour from Tampa, 2 hours from Orlando (Disneyworld). 

The owner is motivated to sell and will also consider a trade for a mountain property in the Eastern US.

Crystal Island

Price: $549,000

Surrounded by gulf waters and warm spring fed havens this island is on Greenleaf Bay by St.Martins and the Salt River. There are over 17 acres above the mean water level with 8.78 acres of non-regulatory land (uplands). 

This property includes a cottage with electricity, window AC and a wood stove. Central water available. This is possibly the most serene property in Citrus County, Florida.

It’s just a boat ride away to restaurants and a convenience store and is very close to the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge.

Dolphin Jump Key

Price: $995,000

This property is a Florida Keys private island with a cottage, deep water dock, kayaks, and motorboat.

This 1/2 acre island also comes with a mainland shore lot,  a deep water dock and a smaller dinghy dock. It's only 5 minutes to the island from the mainland.

Walk into the water off the island and enjoy great swimming and snorkelling.

Dan May Island is a 72 acre private island paradise accessible only by boat or seaplane. Located in northern Levy County, on the western coast of north central Florida. The Dixie County town of Suwannee, six miles north of Dan May Island, is the closest town from which to launch a boat for the trip out the historic Suwannee River. 

Incredible flora, manatees, alligators, turtles, osprey, heron, wild hogs, and an occasional parrot during the winter months are a few of the sights to enjoy. Dan May Island is so protected, it's also been home to the Florida Panther and Florida Black Bear.

The existing lodge, approached from Dan May Creek, is high and dry and hurricane tested for over 100 years. The turn of the century, natural cypress lodge is 1700 plus sq ft with one large main room, kitchen, three bedrooms, and two full baths.

Dan May Creek and the Suwannee River is known for superb fishing or from Dan May's front door. Boat out 300 yards for ocean fishing in the Gulf of Mexico where the red fish practically jump into your boat!
