If I could purchase that island for myself and my family, the LAST thing that I'd want to do is to "develop" it and use it as a vacation home. I'd leave it as natural as possible, build a small hut and live off the land.
If a hurricaine destroyed it, what would we have lost that we couldn't rebuild? And we wouldn't have to worry about insurance claims or lost "valuables". The most valuable thing we would have would be our LIVES and simple BELIEFS AND VALUE SYSTEMS. Although I would definitely establish some sort of storm shelter.
