Now is the perfect time to buy an island - especially for these prices.

And who knows? A buyer might just end up island-neighbors with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, who stayed on Vancouver Island during their winter vacation last year, shortly before announcing their intention to break off from the royal family and seek "financial independence."

Colliers International, a Vancouver-based real estate firm, has listed several islands off the coast of British Columbia for sale, Vancouver Sun reports. The islands we've highlighted here are priced as low as $841,830 and cost as much as $1.7 million.

Some of the islands, such as the West Ballenas Island, are in their natural state, meaning they offer the perfect opportunity to be developed and built upon. They have large forested areas and private beaches, offering stunning views of the surrounding waters.

Here's a look at the three islands, arranged in order from least to most expensive.
