One of the most outstanding seafront properties on the Belizean mainland--suitable for resort, residential and commercial development--is this 1,400 acre block just north of Mullins River Village. It has 3,200’ of frontage on the Caribbean Sea and 2,250' of frontage on both sides of the soon-to-be paved Coastal Highway that crosses the western part of the property. A cambered 50' wide road with roadside ditches and five bridges runs 2.5 miles west to east through the property from the Coastal Highway to the Sea.
Mahogany Creek parallels the property’s northern boundary and has been dredged for a half mile west from the sea to facilitate the development of a fresh water marina and inland canal-side residential lots. Ample space has been identified to accommodate a 5,000’ airstrip which would be less than 15 minutes from the Goldson International Airport and the property is well suited for the development of a championship golf course. Three hundred acres near the sea, including the entire seacoast that once consisted of mangrove and swamp, has been filled and compacted, has a network of roads and drainage canals, and is poised for immediate development. One effect of the extensive fill and drainage work is that the remaining mangrove has transitioned into a flourishing forest.
This property is 15 miles from Belize's Barrier Reef, part of the second longest living reef in the world. Southern Long Caye sits immediately west of the reef and is known for its exceptional scuba diving and snorkeling sites. The caye and the nearby reef is alive with marine life. Delicate sea fans, myriad varieties of colorful tropical fish and majestic coral gardens abound. The fishing is rich and unspoiled. Southern Long Caye itself is populated with exotic species of birds, reptiles, plants and other wildlife. In this area there is ready channels through the reef that allow easy access to the different world of deep sea fishing. Literally every aspect of water-based recreation can be enjoyed within a short distance of this remarkable property.
The central location makes the property readily accessible to the rest of the country. It is 19 miles from Dangriga, 40 miles from the national capital of Belmopan and 55 miles from Belize City. By sea it is 25 miles south of Belize City, 13 miles north of Dangriga and 45 miles north of Placencia. The property is approximately 55 miles by road from both the Fort Street and Harvest Caye cruise ship ports that suggests additional opportunities to accommodate Belize’s rapidly growing number of cruise ship day-tourists.
This unique property lends itself to a variety of potential developments. A full-service seaside resort with all amenities including marina, private airstrip and golf course is one. Another is high-end residential development ranging from seafront villas, to condominiums around the airstrip, to private seaview estates on the hills at the west end of the property. Commercial development along the Coastal Highway is also an option available to the enterprising owner/developer as this route, once paved, will be part of the primary north-south transportation corridor from Mexico (125 miles from Chetumal) and Belize City to southern Belize (100 miles from Punta Gorda).
New on the market, this premier property awaits purchase by a party committed to creating the outstanding Belizean tourism-recreational-residential-commercial complex.
