Placencia, Stann Creek District, Belize
The long and shapely 38-acre Long Coco Caye, located 30 minutes by boat from the booming Placencia peninsula, has come on the market.
This naturally beautiful island is arguably the finest private island in the Western Caribbean. With a tropical habitat of coconut palm and pine, a navigable deep-water lagoon roughly 1,000 long and 300 feet wide, with an entrance for yachts, white sandy beaches on its northern shores, and all surrounded with turquoise waters, and vibrant, thriving coral reef home to countless species of marine wildlife, ready to be explored and respected. This is an unparalleled paradise.
The 38-acre island currently boasts six well-appointed cabanas, two caretaker homes, and two boat docks, as well as solar power, a diesel generator, septic tanks, freshwater wells, and water cisterns. Long Coco Caye is an ideal setting for a luxury resort with a large-yacht harbor, boutique hotel, and maybe a spa. Or an individual may eye it as a personal luxury retreat. The islands could accommodate a private air runway.
Unlike most cayes, Long Coco does not require any fill or planting. The island is covered in coconut palms and tall pines with deep spreading roots which provide stability for the soil and prevents soil erosion during storms. This caye is development ready – a blank canvas, prime for development for the dot-com /crypto magnate or the next branch of a corporate empire.
The world’s second-largest barrier reef is just 15 minutes away and provides shelter from the swell of the open seas leaving the waters calm and crystal clear. The Belize Barrier Reef is home to some of the world’s best diving, snorkeling, and fishing. A few miles away is the Ray Caye resort, other islands such as Moho Caye and French Louie Caye, and the Laughing Bird Caye National Park. And the nearby beach resort town of Placencia provides a friendly, exotic mainland post for entertainment and conveniences.
