Mark Zuckerberg DOUBLES size of his Hawaii property empire after spending $53m on 600 acres of beachfront land despite million-person petition calling for a ban on his 'colonization' of paradise island

Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan have almost doubled the size of their estate in Hawaii, purchasing a neighboring 600 acre plot for $53 million in a move likely to further enrage his island critics.

The Facebook founder, who began buying up chunks of the island in September 2014, added the additional land on March 19, according to Pacific Business News.

Kauai is the fourth largest of Hawaii's eight main islands, and home to 67,000 people.

The north shore land, which includes the spectacular Larsen's Beach, was bought from a nonprofit organization established by a local family, whose roots, the paper reported, go back to the days of the Hawaiian kingdom.
