Johnny Depp Buys Little Hall’s Pond Cay, Johnny Depp allegedly fell in love with the Bahamas while filming his first “Pirates” film, and decided it was his destiny to wash ashore on his own private island. In 2004, he invested $3.6 million of his booty in Little Hall’s Pond Cay, a secluded spot in the Exuma isles.
He later boasted to the press that the island would run on solar power alone, but has since made it clear that the public-particularly paparazzi-would not be welcome at his ecofriendly retreat (he allegedly refers to it as “F–k Off Island”).
After falling in love with the laid-back Bahamas lifestyle while filming “Pirates of the Caribbean”, Johnny Depp began a search for his own tropical island to get stranded on. And in 2004 he found it in the beautiful Exumas, buying Little Hall’s Pond Cay for US $3.6M as a retreat to enjoy with his songbird wife Vanessa Paradise and their two children. The actor recently made news by publicizing that his island will be run exclusively on eco-friendly solar power, as well as for having invited the (formerly) troubled ingenue Lindsay Lohan aboard for some time out of the public eye.
There’s little question that escaping from the prying eyes of the paparazzi was also a prime motivator for Depp’s island purchase- he supposedly refers to his little piece of paradise as “F**k Off Island”.
