Full Description: Development Site in Turneffe Atoll - 8.2 acres on Calabash Caye - Eastern Shore
Only 75 minutes (sometimes less) from Belize City by boat, and 15 minutes by air. Calabash Caye is a magical world unto itself.
The time has come to consider this island for significant development as tourist destination.
Calabash Caye offers solid land, good elevation, mature tropical foliage. Calabash is home to a Belize Coast Guard station and a research facility from the University College of Belize. Most of the other islands in the area are mangrove or are accreted silt without solid bedrock. Calabash has solid bedrock and significant width.
Calabash Caye fronts two coral reef systems, containing an abundance of undersea life. Numerous dive sites are minutes from the shore, and the world famous Blue Hole is a 15-minute boat ride away. World-class salt-water fly fishing is right off the beach. The presence of the Coast Guard insures safety and security for the residents of the island.
The "neighborhood" is excellent!! Just north of Calabash Caye is Blackbird Caye, where there is a lovely eco-resort and an excellent airstrip. Two islands south of Calabash Caye, on Ropewalk Caye a 100+ room luxury dive resort has been constructed and is scheduled to open soon.
