As unbelievable as it sounds, it’s true: there are private tropical island resorts that you don’t need to take out a mortgage in order to afford. Look hard enough and you’ll find a bunch of them tucked away on quiet sandy crests dotting the sea around the world, but I’ll focus on two of the finest ones close to the United States—to keep your flight costs down—and another in a more exotic locale.

Coco Plum Island, Belize
Cooper Island Beach Club, British Virgin Islands
Robinson Crusoe Island, Fiji
