An amazing private island located off the southeast corner of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, has been put up for sale by billionaire Craig McCaw who has made his fortune in the telecommunications industry. He purchased the property back in 1994 for the sum of $19 million. Fast forward 20 years to 2014 and it can now be yours for just $75 million. The island comes complete with its own private harbour, golf course and spa, and not to forget incredible views fit for a billionaire.

These buildings serve as reminders of the islands industrial past. During World War II it is thought that the island produced around 900 tons of dynamite a month.
