Nicolas Cage (Leaf Cay, Bahamas)
Nicolas Cage is notorious for being one of Hollywood’s biggest spenders, to the point of almost going bankrupt. It’s no surprise that apart from the many luxurious objects he’s purchased throughout the years, a beautiful island is one of them. Cage purchased Leaf Cay in the Bahamas in 2006 for a hefty $3 million. Cage was drawn to the island’s lush palm trees, powdery beaches, and clear blue waters, not to mention its beautiful marine habitat.
