How to buy an island

In February 2023, we anchored off the small Caribbean island of Barbuda. Other sailors had told us that we would find the last untouched paradise of the Caribbean here. Indeed: crystal clear water, white and turquoise sandy beaches. But soon we noticed that many sections of the beach were inaccessible. “Private Property” signs were everywhere. Yet the island is also so special because the land belongs to everyone, is managed by everyone and should be accessible to everyone. What was going on in paradise? Karin started researching and came across a story that is representative of those on many other dream islands and places in the world. The report was published in the magazine “Reportagen” in September 2023.
