A private island in the Bahamas with SIX miles of beach and room for a golf course is up for auction for £14million

A PRIVATE island in the Bahamas is up for sale for a whopping $19.5m (£14m).

St Andrews, also known as Little Ragged Island, is the most southern island in the Bahamas.

Listed by Concierge Auctions, it is also the largest private island currently on sale.

There is actually no minimum bid on the island, but it is expected to start at $19.5m and you will need an $100,000 deposit to start.

The 730-acre island is undeveloped making it perfect for hotel owners wanting to build a resort there.

Not only is there room for an 18-hole golf course, but there are also white sand beaches and deep water access that can accommodate large yachts.

To get to it, it is 10 minutes by boat from Duncan Town, or near to Ragged Island which has a private plane airstrip.

It's 223 miles from Nassau, the Bahamas capital.

The listing states: "The opportunity of a lifetime awaits with this stunning Bahamian island.

"Surrounded by azure ocean waters and fringed with pristine white sand beaches, the island is breathtaking from first look and presents infinite possibility.

"A perfect blank canvas of rolling hills, lignum vitae trees, and calm warm waters begs to be painted with your dream project: a picturesque private residential settlement, a crown jewel of a tropical estate with miles of private beaches to wander, or a boutique resort with more than enough acreage left to add an entire 18-hole golf course."

If you want to see it for yourself you can even arrange a private virtual viewing of the island.

Put March 26 in your diaries, as that is when the auction will be going live.
