The property consists of two parcels of land. The first tract is 44+ acres with 2500+ feet of natural beachfront. The second parcel is 112+ acres with 5000 feet of beachfront including the inner lagoon.
The undeveloped waterfront acreage within the 44 acre tract would be ideally suited for an upscale condominium project and is compatible with existing land use recommendations. The inner lagoon is perfectly suited for a marina development.
The island is located on the windward side of Turneffe Atoll which is HUGE at over 4000 acres and covered in tropical jungle and mangrove forests. Thousands of coconut palms dot the beachfront and the interior of the island, in addition to Sea Grapes, Palmettos, and other native plant species. The island is populated with Iguanas and other lizard species, an incredible variety of bird life, and even saltwater crocodiles. The reef surrounding the Atoll is only a few hundred feet away with some of the best diving in the world.
Some additional acreage can be purchase along with the resort property including a small island nearby and an additional 800 acres of undeveloped land. This would add several miles of waterfront to the property. Please inquire for details on the additional property.
