Fabulous 105 acre parcel in what feels like a remote part of Belize but is only 10 minutes from Independence. This is great example of affordable land in Belize and is ideal for farming, a resort, commune or wood working business. Nature lovers will enjoy living with the wildlife that use Big Creek as their watering hole and farmers will prosper with rich alluvial soil. This land is accessed by an all weather road that runs off the Southern Highway in between the Punta Gorda junction and Bella Vista. This means a 4 minute drive to civilisation and shopping in Bella Vista and 10 minutes the Savannah airport, Escalante gas station, Independence Village, Malacate beach, Big Creek for immigration and all the necessities in Independence. Access to the beach and sea is a 15 minute drive and a great place to enter at the mouth of the Placencia lagoon and the Caribbean where fresh water meets the sea. Placencia is one of the largest natural protected harbours in the Caribbean and a great launching point for boaters.
The property has access to power, is relatively flat and is mostly savannah with pines near the road. A short walk north brings you to a small creek which is a tributary of Big Creek. Another 500 metres north of that is Big Creek which is surrounded by beautiful Jungle and home to countless species of wildlife such as gibnut, pecary, foxes, quash, cats and endless bird species. Big Creek is large enough for a nice swim to cool off on a hot tropical day.
Independence is also home to Malacate Beach which is the mainland facility for Norwegian cruise lines which has been operating its Belize stop at Harvest Caye, a short boat ride southeast.
