Leonardo DiCaprio has starred in films such as The Beach and Shutter Island.
 
So maybe it’s no surprise that he decided to get himself a tropical island lined with sandy beaches and palm trees. In 2005, the Oscar winner purchased Blackadore Caye off the coast of Belize for $1.75 million, and since then he’s been busy transforming it into an eco luxury resort.
