About This Quiz

Islands hold a unique power in the human mind. An island is a sanctuary, or an escape, or a prison. An island can be a paradise or a desert. Islands have housed fortresses, palaces, secrets, and monuments. Islands can be infamous, like Riker's Island, or beloved, like the Île Saint-Louis. They can be legendary, like Avalon, or mundane, like Catalina Island. Islands can be far from land, like Bermuda, or in the middle of a continent, like Big Bone Island, in Kentucky. Islands symbolize a cutting off from the rest of the world, and yet some islands seem to be the center of everything.

Privately held islands are among the most sought-after properties for the super-rich, with the islands in the hands of Shakira, Jay Z, and Paul Allen. With the kind of money private-island-owners have, an island can be configured any way its owner wants. Private islands can be private playpens for owners like Johnny Depp, or places for a family to gather, as is the case with Virgin founder Richard Branson.
