5. Richard Branson’s $10 million Island
With a net worth of over $5.2 billion, 66-year-old Richard Branson has more than one expensive toy. However, the most famous extravagance of the business mogul and founder of the Virgin Group has the be his Caribbean resort Necker Island.
Branson has used his island to play hose to celebrities for decades, taking five years and $10 million to build. The result is an island that is truly an adult playground – featuring a zip line to carry guests from the house down to a white sand beach, not far from which they can take advantage of his 105-foot yacht, as well as a $1.7 million submarine used for whale and shark watching.
