Expansive 25 Acre Waterfront Parcel

ReMax VIP is thrilled to share this new listing of an expansive 25 acre parcel with water frontage on the Placencia Lagoon! This waterfront property is located right next to the Hummingbird Marina, and just north of the Placencia Airstrip.

This property boasts stunning views of the Maya Mountains, water frontage on the Placencia Lagoon, and easy access to the beautiful blue waters of the Caribbean Sea.

With over 550 feet of frontage on the main Placencia Road, this large parcel is a perfect opportunity for commercial development.

Opportunity to Develop

Within walking distance of the Placencia Airstrip, this waterfront parcel is perfectly located to capitalize on visitors arriving from the Belize City International Airport. This area of the peninsula is currently home to Hummingbird Marina (formerly Thunderbirds Marine), The Flying Pig Bar and Grill, Hobbs Brew Barge, and the nearly completed Serenity Beach Resort, drawing in plenty of visitors with plenty of room still for a new business or development.

With over 25 acres of space, and 550 feet of main road frontage, the possibilities for development on this waterfront parcel are nearly endless.

Being so near the airport, this large waterfront parcel is a perfect opportunity for a development in the tourism industry; whether it be a restaurant or bar, accommodations, or another source of entertainment, visitors weary from travel are sure to stop by to relax and unwind.

An up-scale, sit-down restaurant would be warmly welcomed in this area. Currently there is a brewery, and a sports bar, so a more extravagant dining option would be the perfect contrast, drawing a different clientele to the area.

A fantastic opportunity in the entertainment industry would be a movie theater. Despite a number of big-names in Hollywood such as Leonardo DiCaprio, or Francis Ford Coppola owning property, and visiting Belize regularly, there are only 2 movie theaters in the entire country!

Naturally, most people spend most of their time outside in the beautiful climate of Belize, however, when it does rain, there is currently not really any indoor activities offered, leaving the perfect niche for a movie theater or other form of indoor entertainment.


This expansive waterfront parcel is located just over a mile north of the Placencia Airstrip, less than 2.5 miles north of Placencia Village, and less than 6 miles south of Maya Beach.

Placencia Village is the second largest tourist destination in the country; known for its white-sandy beaches, animated atmosphere, and wide variety of activities and tours offered. Some of the most popular tours on offer include world-class SCUBA diving, snorkeling, fishing, and island hopping; as well as excursions to the jungle such as horse back riding, ATV tours, and swimming under waterfalls.

Offering a wide variety of cuisine including local delicacies, fresh-rolled sushi, international favorites, and sea food straight from the Caribbean; Placencia is also well known for its beach-side bars and restaurants.

Maya Beach is a smaller village to the north, home to many of the expats on the peninsula. Despite its small size, Maya Beach is well known for its plethora of quality dining options; ranging from local Belizean cuisine, to pizza, burgers and other bar food, there is something tasty for everyone to enjoy.

One of the most popular restaurants in Maya Beach is Bistro, a small beach-side restaurant serving the best Bloody Mary’s and Breakfast on the peninsula, as well as offering romantic sea-side dinners when the sun goes down.
