5 Incredible Private Islands In North Carolina That Could Be Yours
Many associate island living with the Caribbean or Key West, but North Carolina has plenty of islands, and a few of those offer complete solitude and privacy. If you’re the introverted type and ready to really escape from the world (without leaving the Tar Heel state) you could call one of these five islands home sweet home.
1. Hog Island
This chain of pristine islands encompasses 600 acres. You'll find your home surrounded by marshes with gorgeous Pamlico Sound views. Both islands are inhabited by wild horses and have multiple sites perfect for building a home or houses. You're also treated to private beaches and waterways. Not far from Ocracoke Island, you can call Hog Island home for $2.5 million.
2. Bells Island
Located on 62 acres in North Carolina's crystal coast region, Bells Island is perfect for the adventure lover. While the island still needs a bit of a facelift for home, parking, and boat sites...it's a great nature escape for the time being. There's untouched sandy shores, woodland, plenty of wildlife and even views of Cape Lookout lighthouse. For $895,000 this can be your very own oasis.
3. Cedar Island
Just minutes from one of the most gorgeous beaches in the world and only 20 miles from Ocracoke Island, this undeveloped 202 acres is perfect for making it into exactly what you want. The central location in the Outer Banks means you're never too far away from civilization but can always return to your private getaway. The island is great for camping and is on the market for $2,645,000.
4. Long Point Island
Long Point Island is rich with history and offers one-of-a-kind views of Coinjock Bay and the ICW. The island has been plotted as five 10.8 acre building sites and the current owners will provide underground power to the island. At the north end, you'll find a gorgeous 1,000 ft. private beach enclosed by majestic trees. A quick trip across the bay leads you to Currituck, known as the "Sportman's Paradise." You're secluded but with a boat you can easily access beaches, shopping areas, and Kitty Hawk. The island is priced at $1,250,000.
5. Paces Mill Island
For those who prefer to just vacation at the beach, you can still have your OWN private island not far from Chapel Hill. Paces Mill is surrounded by lush forest land and rolling hills. The 45-acres can be subdivided and offers the opportunity for two homesites, each with unique views. Located among the Haw River, $1,600,000 will let you call this island home.

It’s nice to daydream about the opportunity to own your very own island; we can all fantasize, but some actually choose to make this a reality. If you had your choice, which one would you call home? Do you know anyone with their very own private island?
Sure, these islands are private, but there are also plenty of
amazing islands in North Carolina to visit that will give you (basically) the same experience!
