Stunning beach front lots in Plantation – only 1) still available!
Maya Beach, Placencia
Property type: Beachfront
SOUTHERN LOT IS UNDER CONTRACT, BUT NORTHERN LOT IS STILL AVAILABLE…
RE/MAX VIP is excited to offer for sale these two large beach lots in Plantation. Each lot is just over a quarter acre (1004 sq m) in size with 75 feet of white sand Caribbean beach. Both lots are high and dry and need little fill if any. The lagoon parcel across the street is shallow which will allow for a great lagoon and mountain view from any home build up on these beach lots which will give residents an amazing 360 degree views of water, sunrises and sunsets. Unbeatable!
These lots can be financed by the owner with as little as 50% down.
These lots are on the northernmost end of the Peninsula, part of the affluent Plantation neighborhood. Building a home here offers you the opportunity to take advantage of both sea and lagoon views and enjoy the serenity of this largely undeveloped section of the peninsula.
To the south of the Plantation we journey down the peninsula first to Maya Beach. This relaxed section of the peninsula is favoured by expats and features some of the best restaurants in the area. 10 minutes drive from Plantation Estates we reach Maya Beach Bistro, a hot spot for gastronomic delights, famous for the best breakfast in Placencia, Tapas Happy Hour every afternoon and romantic beachfront dinners.
Maya Beach is also well known for having the only bowling alley in Belize! Also just 10 minutes away from Plantation, head down to Jaguar Lanes for fun nights of bowling, wings and Belikin beers, the national beer of Belize. Join the locals for weekly poker nights, sign up for the bowling league or just enjoy their big screen TVs which always have the latest game playing.
Further south, a leisurely 25 minutes drive from the Plantation, you will find yourself in the heart of the action, Placencia Village. A quaint village with all the excitement of one of Belize’s major tourist destinations. Enjoy the famous Sidewalk, a beachside promenade lined with bars and restaurants offering. Here you will find Placencia institution, Barefoot Beach Bar where you can sit on the beach and sip on the best (and strongest!) margaritas and stuff yourself with their famous Lobster Grilled Cheese. Placencia Village is also where you’ll depart from to go on any one of the many exciting tours on offer from some of the most knowledgeable tour guides in the country. Some of the best include taking an exciting boat ride up Monkey River into the heart of howler monkey territory, heading into the mangroves to go manatee watching, or taking a guided food tour around the village to taste local delicacies and if you’re up for it, braving a rum sampling session.
Let’s now take a journey off the peninsula! Heading up north we leave the peninsula and head inland. Only 20 minutes away we reach the famous Cockscomb Basin Forest Reserve. Nearly 100,000 acres of protected forest on the slopes of the Maya Mountains is yours to explore. This is the land of the elusive jaguar so keep your eyes peeled. The expertise of the local guides will help you spot his tracks and if you’re lucky, you may even spot him among the tropical rainforest. Here you can also take the opportunity to interact with Mayan community where they’ll guide you through traditional chocolate making techniques; you’ll even get the opportunity to make and taste your own! Finish the day with a hearty Mayan meal before heading back to the Peninsula.
