So long as it has its own water supply.
I turned it down since the plumbing was questionable..........
Most islands have plenty of rainfall. Just set up a bunch of rain barrels and water storage tanks. I don’t think, on a tropical island that water is a problem, if you have the right set up.
A secure energy supply is more of a priority, I think. Otherwise, you’re a very rich subsistence farmer.
