Johnny Depp isn’t exactly scrounging for loose change- and so his private island located in the Bahamas is, unsurprisingly, a piece of paradise. The Island is called Little Hall’s Pond Cay, it spans around 45 acres of sheer natural beauty- with the 58-year-old superstar calling it the most beautiful place he has ever stepped in.
In an interview with Vanity Fair back in 2009, he stated that he didn’t think there was any place so beautiful and pure. He found freedom here- and after a tumultuous decade, he definitely deserves his freedom, and dare we say it, mental peace.
Johnny Depp And His Love For His Island
Johnny Depp’s island is situated in the Exumas archipelago, which sits about 60 miles from the capital of Nassau. The private island also finds its neighbor in a wildlife sanctuary located right next to it. The surroundings of his island are a major part of the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park protected area, and as everyone must have guessed by now, was home to quite a variety of species. He told Vanity Fair that this island was his sanctuary- with escapism his only mode of survival.
But what’s even more interesting about Johnny Depp’s island is that the beaches are all named after his kids. The 45-acre island boasts of six white sandy beaches, and every single one is named after something or someone near and dear to his heart.
Two of the beaches are named after Lily-Rose, aged 22, and Jack, aged 19, his kids who he shares with Vanessa Paradis, his ex-girlfriend. Another beach has been named after Vanessa. Another beach on his private island has been named Gonzo, as a tribute to his friend and the late author Hunter S. Thompson.
One of the other beaches bears the name Brando, after Johnny Depp’s mentor Marlon Brando- who had a say in his Depp buying the island.
