Take A Tour Of Mark Zuckerberg's Gigantic New $US100 Million Property In Hawaii

Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg has purchased a 750-acre property on the North Shore of the Hawaiian island of Kauai, Forbes confirms.

The purchase includes two separate parcels: the Kahu’aina Plantation, a 357-acre former sugarcane plantation, and Pila’a Beach, a 393-acre property with a white-sand beach.

Zuckerberg paid a reported $US100 million for both properties, though a source tells Forbes that he plans to build just one home. 

The Kahu'aina Plantation is located on 357 acres of land in Kilauea, Hawaii.

It includes 2,500 feet of white-sand beach.

It also has a working organic farm with a variety of crops, including ginger, turmeric, and papaya.

According to the property's promotional materials, the plantation has been approved for up to 80 homes, though Zuckerberg reportedly plans to build only one. It doesn't get much more private than that.

Zuckerberg is known to go to great lengths to secure his privacy. In 2013, he bought four houses adjacent to his Palo Alto home to prevent nosy neighbours from moving in. The Kahu'aina Plantation feels isolated and exclusive.

According to Forbes, Zuckerberg has bought as many as two dozen landlocked parcels on the plantation. The rights to those parcels are known as 'kuleanas.'

He reportedly paid $US66 million just to assemble this 357-acre parcel.

And it's absolutely gorgeous.

Zuckerberg also paid $US49.8 million for an 89.2% stake of Pila'a Beach, an isolated oceanfront property adjacent to the plantation.

The 393-acre parcel had not been publicly listed.

The beach is difficult to access, with a half-mile trail that leads down to the shore. The beach is open to the public, and the piece of land that Zuckerberg purchased is situated a bit further back from the shoreline.

All told, the Facebook billionaire now owns some 750 acres of property on this isolated stretch of Hawaiian beach.

It will certainly make for a beautiful retreat for Zuckerberg and his family.
