As dream properties go, they don't get much dreamier than a private island in French Polynesia.

Nine-and-a-half-acre Motu Teta - in Tahitian it means "far away isle" - is on the market for €2,850,000, or about NZ$4 million which is a lot, but for that you will own a slice of South Pacific paradise.

Amazing images show that the island has gorgeous white sandy beaches, plenty of lush greenery and is surrounded by mesmerising turquoise waters.

Motu Teta is located 211 miles from Papeete in the Commune of Tiputa, which sits within the Rangiroa atoll.
