Iguana Island is a volcanic spot 12 miles off the cost of Bluefields, Nicaragua, which just hit the market.

It costs £376,627, which is £130,000 less than the average flat price in the capital, according to Rightmove with one coming in at £511,594.

The island is also really big, with it measuring five acres in total.

There's a coconut palm and banana tree-lined island which boasts a three-bed house with a 28ft observation tower.

On the island there's space for a swimming pool with a dock on the west side of the island which is perfect for fishing.

Thankfully if you still want to keep connected to other parts of the world there is access to WiFi, phone and TV signal.

According to the description, Iguana Island also comes with its own staff with an on-site manager and caretakers.

The incredible spot definitely makes you rethink about the house market in the UK…

Also just think how cool it'll be telling your pals you own an island.

If you're looking for something more local, a Scottish island with buildings and a helipad recently went for sale too.

The island, called Pladda, has its own lighthouse, helipad and lots of accommodation.

And it will cost you less than a four bedroom house in Edinburgh.

The small island can be spotted from the ferry from Ardrossan to Campbelltown.

Pladda is small at 700m long and over 33 acres in size, but has a distinctive teardrop shape.

At just £350,000 you'll land the island as well as the former Lighthouse Keeper's accommodation which has five bedrooms, two sitting rooms and a bathroom.

Plus, a separate accommodation with bedroom, shower room, kitchen and sitting room.
