The billionaire invested in three plots of beachfront property on Kauai's Larsen's Beach from the nonprofit Waioli Corporation. A road leading to the beach was not included in the sale and remains public, according to reports.

Known as “Lepeuli ahupua'a”, the property houses several collections of “reefs, sea, birds, flora and history in their undisturbed native habitat,” according to Waioli Corporation.

"We know that this land will remain in their trusted hands and that Mark and Priscilla will act as responsible stewards of Lepeuli today and in the future," Waioli Corporation President Sam Pratt told Pacific Business News.

The purchase brings Zuckerberg's ownership of the land in Hawaii to 1,300 acres.

He bought a 700-acre farm on Kauai in 2015, but had problems with several families who owned small parcels within the farm.

The owners were known as "kamaaina families" or descendants of native Hawaiian families who had inherited the land without formal deeds.

The tech mogul generated controversy by filing a series of lawsuits to evict the families and force them to sell their land at a public auction.
