Notorious Pirate Island On the Market for 50 Million 3

Property of The Week: Notorious Pirate Island On The Market For $50 Million


Black Sam Bellamy was one of the most notorious and wealthiest pirates in the early nineteenth century. His pirate island hideaway, now a stunning resort property, has been listed for sale at $50 million.

In his short pirate career, he captured fifty-three ships, including the state-of-the-art English slave ship Whydah Gally, which he used as his flagship.

This “Robin Hood of the Sea” or “Prince of Pirates” developed a distinctive style. His favourite weapons were four dueling pistols carried in his sash. The pirate prince’s reign ended when a north easterly storm capsized his ship, drowning the captain and most of his crew. The wreckage was discovered in 1982, yielding over 200,000 artifacts, including a cannon loaded with gold and precious stones.

Black’s Island is a seven-acre gem off the coast of the Florida Panhandle, and now sports a four-star resort with twenty-six waterfront bungalows. Accessible only by boat, seaplane or helicopter, the white-sand island is about ten minutes from the mainland, offering a spectacular Caribbean adventure without leaving the United States. The property can be operated commercially or retained as a family retreat.

The fully furnished bungalows come in one- and two-story models, 1,225 and 1,425 square feet respectively. Each unit includes two bedrooms, a loft bedroom area, two full bathrooms, a spacious kitchen with an island and top-notch appliances, a living room, a dining area, a laundry room and a balcony, while the two-story bungalows have an additional half bathroom. Boasting a classic look with blond wood walls and grey stone floors, the bungalows were recently remodeled. A round floorplan offers 360-degree views of the gorgeous island from sunrise to sunset.

In addition to the bungalows, the resort includes a four-story luxury clubhouse, a cabana with bar, beach volleyball courts, and a forty-by-sixteen-foot swimming pool. The island is in the middle of a marine estuary, offering sparkling clear water and numerous opportunities for bird-watching and duck hunting, plus kayaking, paddleboarding, jet-skiing and relaxing on the beach.
