Gales Point Peninsula within the Southern Lagoon

Belize’s beautiful secret is opening up. With the Coastal Highway now being paved, Belize’s Central Coast is much easier to reach. This is where the Maya Mountains come closest to the sea; where Caribbean breezes come in from the Barrier Reef bringing ideal tropical weather; where life is slow, like old-time Belize was fifty years ago.

The exotic Southern Lagoon is about 9,000 acres, plus the connected Western and Sapodilla Lagoons. To the west it is ringed by foothills and mountains. This is a pristine estuary system, with 7 freshwater jungle rivers flowing in, and one wild-and-scenic river flowing out to the Caribbean Sea. This estuary, including its tributaries and shorelines, is designated as an IUCN Category IV Wildlife Sanctuary. It is surrounded by rugged wild lands. The sport fishing here is world-class. The beaches are natural high-sand, and almost completely undeveloped.

InTheTropics Network lives here. We specialize in this areas. If you are into sustainable development, beach life, sport fishing, off-grid hideouts, and a laid-back Caribbean lifestyle, we can help you find your Tropical Safe Haven, in this seaside paradise.

1-1/4 mile of natural, high-sand Caribbean beach.

948 ac Isthmus Property, w/ beaches on both the Southern Lagoon & the Caribbean Sea

This beautiful, undeveloped acreage has 1- 1/4 miles of natural, high-sand Caribbean Beach on its east, “Sunrise” border, and over a kilometer of Southern Lagoon beach and Quamina Creek on its west, “Sunset” border.  The Caribbean Beach has many mature coconut palms and native hardwoods above the sand beach, with mangrove barrier about 200m back. Most of its acreage is beautiful open savanna.

Featuring waterfronts at either end, this offers the owner the ability to have storm-proof, all-weather docks on the lagoon side. These docks would be due-east of Gales Point peninsula, with spectacular Maya Mountain backdrops to the west.

This wild beach is a favored Hawksbill Turtle nesting area. A mangrove weather barrier is behind the hardwoods, about 400 meters back from the beach. The Lagoon beach is also backed by mangroves near the water edge, but with plenty of room for safe-harbor docks to be built. Deeded road access from the Coastal Highway passes through the property, from south to north. This property must be seen to be appreciated ~ its beaches are like Hopkins or Placencia beaches were 75 years ago! With the Coastal Road being paved, one can arrive here from the BZE airport in less than 90 minutes. This makes it Belize’s closest, secluded resort destination from Belize’s international airport.
