1. Larry Ellison – Lanai
The American investor and businessman is a billionaire.
In fact, he’s listed as the 10th wealthiest person in the whole world according to Bloomberg Billionaires Index!
Ellison amassed some of his fortunes as the founder of Software Development Laboratories, which is now known as Oracle and is the 2nd biggest software company worldwide.
With a fortune of over $100 billion, purchasing a Hawaiian island for between $300 million and $600 million is small fry.
Lanai, known as Pineapple Island locally, is the six-largest of all the Hawaiian Islands and is approximately 18 miles long.
Ellison famously gave back some of the islands after buying it.
