Photos: The world's most expensive island, Al Marjan Island, goes up for sale in UAE

A private 660-acre island in the United Arab Emirates has gone on sale for £360million, offering private beaches, five-star hotels and stunning views of the Arabian Gulf.

Luxury living: Swimming pools, grassy lawns and sun loungers with a view of the sea at one of the hotels on Al Marjan Island, which features sandy beaches and five-star accommodation 
Al Marjan Island, which has gone on the market, is a collection of four man-made expanses in the northernmost of the United Arab Emirates, Ras Al Khaimah. The buyer, who will have to fork out $462million (£360million) for the property, will get their hands on five million square feet of land with many clubs, hotels and beachside resorts already in place. The four islands - Dream Island, Breeze Island, Treasure Island and View Island - provide 'breathtaking views' and a 'naturally luxurious environment', according to the property's online listing.
