Let’s Buy An Island (“LBI”) is an international community of like-minded investors and travellers committed to supporting a unique island environment that provides much of the benefits of owning your own island, but in a much more affordable way.
IBG Inc. (“IBG”), the corporation behind the LBI project, was created to make this dream a reality. Registered in the Cayman Islands and managed by a global team of tourism and business professionals, IBG has a broad mandate to find, purchase, develop and sell private island experiences around the world. We are dedicated to creating a socially responsible, eco-friendly, self-sustaining island property designed to rent to travelers who can visit, live, relax and enjoy the solitude of nature, and the joy of staying on your own private island..
Investment in a private island is an investment in the value of the property, but also in a lifestyle opportunity to have a private island getaway for its owners.
