The Belize government – with the financial backing of the United Kingdom and European engineers, has completely paved Belize’s Coastal HighwayThis region ~ the closest destination-resort location to Belize’s international airport ~ is now closer & much more accessible. With new bridges, flood remediation, realignment, and paving recently completed,  careful development is now taking place ~ as property values increase. aerial beach

We have a number of spectacular properties on Belize’s coast with resort-quality Caribbean beaches, approximately 23 miles due south of Belize City, 15 miles due north of Dangriga, in Belize’s “Manatee” area. Much of this area is now only an hour’s drive from Belize’s international airport (“BZE”) on a smooth highway.  By boat it is 90 minutes from Belize City via an unforgettable journey through pristine jungle rivers and seaside lagoons. By air it is a 14 minute flight from the BZE airport. One of the properties has a paved airstrip able to handle any aircraft licensed to fly in Belize. Service is available through helicopter and air charter service. It is along the established air route. Another regional airstrip is only 20 miles south, in Dangriga.

The Coastal Highway now.
The Coastal Highway is a 38-mile shortcut to southern Belize, traversing a level, coastal plain, between the beach and the majestic foothills of the Maya Mountains. It was long a 4-WD gravel road, subject to flat tires and seasonal flooding. Now this strategic route through spectacular scenery is paved, with new bridges and major realignment. It is an international-quality highway. Development is coming, but can we keep it sustainable? You can help. Land values along this major shortcut to southern Belize will increase.
This Coastal Highway has replaced the old, mountainous, 76-mile route, to central and southern Belize.
Our properties occupy both sides of the Coastal Highway for miles, exactly where it comes closest to the Caribbean Sea. All with public road access, these properties encompass miles of undeveloped, natural, high-sand Caribbean beach; thousands of acres of coastal savanna; and extend up into the dramatic jungled foothills of the Maya Mountains. The MesoAmerican Barrier Reef islands begin about 10 miles off shore.
Beach Villa
A Seafront Villas with landscaped, 500-meter swimming beach.

Some of the properties include profitable citrus groves, a working shrimp farm, private beach villas, and mountain jungles in wild abundance. They surround the Southern Lagoon, an IUCN Category IV Wildlife Sanctuary. Their beaches are private and secluded due to the undeveloped surroundings and large acreage of the properties. This area is arguably Belize’s most beautiful, exotic area with incredible natural diversity. Its vast wild lands and rich estuaries are home to primordial populations of aquatic, terrestrial, and aerial fauna and flora.

Some properties have grid power, some are off-grid. Caribbean breezes favour the area; average rainfall here is less than further south in the Stann Creek and Toledo Districts. Farmland here grow citrus, rice, row crops, vegetables & fruit. This area, the Southern Lagoon and its 7 tributaries and out into the Caribbean Sea ~ is an astounding tarpon fishing ground, offering some of the best sport fishing on earth.
