Live Like An Island King

Updated on July 15, 2017

Dirt Cheap Party Islands

Imagine waking up on a beach house all your own. The sunset kisses your face, and you saunter onto the beach barefoot and take a quick dip before grabbing your paddle board for some all day R & R. Fresh fruit, delicious drinks, and friendly island dwellers surround you as you gallivant around the small old world feel of the never lands of paradise.

And guess what? It's all on the cheap. Yes you guessed it, you can live like a King on a pittance of pay, or even a bit of small savings. I've even seen fellow travelers reside on these microcosms of Heaven on their unemployment debit cards. The below are several islands you can live on prior to retirement or when you're ready to quit the stateside 9-5 crowd.

Three Cheap Islands to party or live (That nobody has heard of)

  • Roatán, Honduras - This gorgeous escape locale is nothing short of eye candy perfection. At just 50 square miles, this spot is just off the coast of Northern Honduras. It is a clean, tourist free escape without the noises of the major cities or annoying college kids. A single man can live here like a King for under $1000 a month.
  • Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic - Paradise island escape at it's very finest. You get the old school raw beach experience, with a few modern local features such as an amazing golf course, and an international vibe mixed with Dominicans, Italians, and French culture. The people are beautiful, the beaches amazing, and the food is exquisite. The prices? Dirt cheap. A classy gent who wants to be treated to the good life can find a more than comfy living here under $1000 a month.
  • Sylt Island, 'Queen of the North Sea’ Germany - You won't get more luxury than this super luxe and super cheap island. Number 1 reason? Nobodies heard of it. With 45 km of amazing beaches on the west coast of this northern Germany island, you will begin each morning with a gorgeous sun, and end it with a fine German wine. The locals are amazingly friendly and mostly speak English or German. There is a bit of a tourist vibe here, but it is quiet, definitely not the overly loud obnoxious variety of tourist. The best hotel on this island is the Hotel Villa Klasen, but one can also AirBNB some amazing island homes for under $300 a month. Total cost for a regular guy to explore the sights and sounds of this German island escape? You guessed it, a little under $1000 a month.

Got no money and got no car? Get yourself to save $10 dollars a week and within a year, enjoy life as the richest man in town on these three super cheap but classy off the grid islands!
