The 730-acre island, known as St. Andrew or Little Ragged Island, is the Bahamas’ southernmost island. The undeveloped property features white, sandy beaches and deep waters on the island’s eastern side that would allow for large yachts.

The Concierge Auctions real estate listing has no minimum bid, requires a $100,000 deposit, and opened March 26. The world’s leading private, high-end auction platform estimates a likely opening bid of $19.5 million.
Hidden Beauty in the Bahamas
Flawless and pristine, Little Ragged Island features almost six miles of shoreline, two large ponds, and thousands of coconut trees in a forest area that envelops the isle. It rests on the southernmost end of the Ragged Islands, a string of islets that stretches for 100 miles. The island features stone walls, leftover from its past use for cow pastures.
There are lignum vitae trees and fresh drinking water from springs dotting the island. The island is ideal for ocean fishermen, with flats that attract bone-fishing experts and novices alike. You’ll find an ample supply of barracuda, grouper, kingfish, snapper, and tuna swimming in the beautiful reefs and warm waters outside the St. Andrew’s beachfront.
Snorkeling and sailing are popular local activities or you can enjoy looking for the wild pink flamingos that inhabit the shallow waters along the chain’s beaches.
The island is a blank canvas limited only by the imagination. The elevation is relatively flat, ranging from sea level to 40 feet. There are rolling hills, trees, and calm waters that could easily accommodate a private residential compound, a tropical estate with miles of private beaches, or a boutique resort.
The pristine real estate paradise is accessible. The Duncan Town settlement, complete with a solar farm and airport, is just five miles away. Residents and guests can access the island from Long Island in the Bahamas with ease, via a boat ride, charter flight, or private plane ride to the airstrip at the Duncan Town airport, and a quick 10-minute boat jaunt to the island.
The island is 372 miles southeast of Miami, 139 miles north of Cuba, and 223 miles from Nassau, the Bahamas’ capital and largest city.
In-person and virtual viewings are available for the property, which is listed by Concierge Auctions with a 5 percent co-broke commission.
