After many years of private ownership, this 37-acre island paradise is ready for its new owner. Located off the coast of Punta Gorda in the Southern part of Belize, the island features stunning white sandy beaches, an abundance of trees, and is surrounded by coral beds and small reef systems.

WORLD CLASS FISHING, DIVING and SNORKELING

This island has an ideal location for diving, fishing and snorkeling. With flats, reefs, lagoons, estuaries and five river mouths in close proximity, the area offers world-class fishing with an abundance of tarpon, snook, barracuda, various snappers, and much more. With a bit of effort you can also go after Bluewater gamefish.

This is also a stunning place for kayaking and other water activities. The views are gorgeous in this part of Belize, especially of the coast of the mainland and the Seven Hills and other mountains.

The island is one of several islands used by the ancient Maya as part of their coastal trade route. There are remains of Maya coral architecture hidden among the trees. Maya merchants set up a dynasty from this location over a millennium ago.

FRUIT TREES and VEGETATION

This is one of very few islands that has an area that resembles a jungle, complete with:

– Buttonwood Trees
– Coconut Trees
– Avocado Trees
– Native Guava
– Moho Trees
– Mango trees
– Citrus (Local Lime Trees)
– Banana Trees
– Wild Sugar Cane
– Black, White and Red mangrove

COASTAL ZONE MANAGEMENT PLAN

The island is mentioned in the Coastal Zone Management Plan as a site suited to low-scale ecological tourism or residential use. Its proximity to Punta Gorda to the southwest provides peace and solitude while also providing access to goods, services and transportation by air, land and sea.

The island is located in the Port Honduras Marine Reserve (PHMR) which is jointly managed by TIDE (a local NGO with funding from The Nature Conservancy and other international donors/agencies) and the Belize Fisheries Department in an effort to maintain a healthy, sustainable marine ecosystem. PHMR is a critical foraging and calving site for the endangered West Indian manatee which are seen regularly in these waters. There are also sea turtle nesting areas, particularly hawksbill turtles. There are also plenty of birds in this area including a healthy population of magnificent Frigatebirds. Within a short distance are a variety of ecotypes including stands of dwarf mangrove, gallery forests, rivers and lagoons as well as mangrove isles in abundance.

The views from the island are outstanding in all directions. The natural beauty of the area is spectacular and it's rare to find an island so rich in history and full of diverse vegetation.
