Experience Caribbean sunrises from this idyllic beach house, commanding 500 feet of natural-sand Caribbean beach.

With no neighbors for several miles to the south you will have free range to miles of pristine Caribbean beach. The neighbor to the north is a small Caribbean beach resort & brew pub in the early stages of development. This is prime location, due to the current project of paving Belize’s Coastal Highway. When paving is complete in 2022, this newly-paved Coastal Highway will be a major shortcut to Southern Belize from Belize’s international airport, Belize City, and most traffic from Northern Belize.

The beach house

As shown outlined in red above, adjacent behind this 7.7-acre beach lot are adjoining 178.8 acres of beautiful coastal savanna, extending west from the beach lot for 1 mile, to the shore of the exotic, 9,000-acre Southern Lagoon.

With the high price of prime beachfront land in Belize, this property (totaling about 186 acres) is an excellent value. This is because only 4% of this property is classified as “ocean beachfront”, while the balance of the property benefits from close proximity to ocean and lagoon beaches – without the high price.

In the popular beach towns of Placencia and Hopkins, an acre of prime beach will cost $500,000 and upwards. Here you can purchase 186 acres in an area slated for prime beach development in the coming 5 years, for much less than you would spend for 3 acres in the crowded tourist towns farther south. This Manatee / Southern Lagoon region will soon be a little more than an hour’s drive from the BZE airport. It is now Belize’s closest resort-destination location to the international airport. Can you imagine the resale value of this property in six or seven years? What does your ten-year plan look like?

This is a spectacular area. Here Belize’s Maya Mountains (directly west) come closest to the sea. This beach, right here, is an important nesting ground for the rare and endangered Hawksbill Turtle. It is within the Gales Point Wildlife Sanctuary, and IUCN Category IV Wildlife Sanctuary. In the nearby rainforests is abundance of primordial flora and fauna. Just a few miles offshore begins the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the world’s second-largest barrier reef. This reef system is also arguably one of the world’s healthiest and most verdant coral reef systems. This beach house is actually closer by boat to Lighthouse Reef, and to Turneffe Atoll, than is Belize City.

We live in and specialize in this Central Belize coastal area, along the Coastal Highway and near Gales Point. We know it well. Ask us about the area, the neighbors, the clear jungle rivers, the caves, sustainable farming, the five big cat species who live in the forests, and the incredible tarpon and sport fishing that we enjoy ~ right here.
