Beachfront Acreage with Endless Opportunities

On the Roatan real estate market, this 1.25-acre beachfront lot rests within easy walking distance of West End Village en route to world-famous West Bay Beach.

This location cannot be understated: finding such a large tract of empty beachfront property in such a popular area is now incredibly rare. Take a look at this beautiful beachfront acreage with endless opportunities for development.

Prime Beachfront Real EstateRotan Beachfrontage

 

It goes without saying that a beachfront lot on a tropical island is a dream come true.

This location offers even more opportunity because of its proximity to Roatan’s two premier tourism centers, without being in the thick of the crowds.

If you’re considering investing in the Caribbean, this is your chance to get in on the upswing in Roatan.

This is honestly some beachfront acreage with endless opportunities. Let’s just go through a few ideas to get you thinking…

Build Your Own Dream Home in the Caribbean

With 1.25 acres to enjoy, you can design the home of your dreams. Enjoy unlimited access to the Caribbean Sea from your front door and lush tropical jungle at your back.

Bask in the privacy of a locale that isn’t filled with tourists, while still being close enough to walk to bars, restaurants, dive shops, and other activities in West End.

Note that there is currently no road access, so no worries about traffic! And getting around by boat is much more fun.

This opportunity to design your own beachfront dream home from start to finish is rare in the Caribbean these days. Finding empty beachfront property in such a desirable area means this won’t last long!

Establish a Small Development of Homes

Vacation rentals and snowbird homes are incredibly popular on the Caribbean island of Roatan. Building a small development on this beachfront acreage is a fantastic option.

Take a look at Turtle Beach and Orchid Beach, two small neighborhood developments just past this beachfront acreage headed toward West Bay. With homes there being popular on the vacation rental market, income streams into the developments throughout the year.

Create a Condo Community – Growing in Popularity in Roatan

Condos are incredibly convenient for countless reasons, but there are only a few small community condo developments in Roatan.

This beachfront acreage offers an amazing opportunity to build a small condo complex right on the beach. The beautiful area offering all the conveniences homeowners or vacationers could want will make for an easy selling point.

Similar concepts to look at in the area include Villas del Playa or Mangrove Dock condos.

Build a Small Luxury Beachfront Boutique Hotel

What more could a visitor want than a beachfront location away from the crowds offering high-end luxuries and world-class service? Unfortunately, there aren’t many hotels providing experiences of that caliber here in Roatan yet.

That’s a gap in the market that will inevitably be filled – this beachfront acreage being an ideal example of a waiting opportunity.

The only small luxury beachfront boutique hotels around include Xbalanque  Ibagari or Mayoka Lodge. Other luxury accommodations are large resorts, while other small boutique hotels lack the “luxury” title.

With increased interest in the island of Roatan from tourists around the world, the market will continue to expand and services are already rising to meet those needs.

A small luxury beachfront boutique hotel might find itself primed and ready to welcome those high-end visitors destined to come to Roatan in the coming years.

Whatever dream you can come up with for this beachfront acreage, I’m sure the right investor will happily maximize its potential. Contact me for more details about this listing or to arrange to view it in person.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Aerial Gibson Bight

Gibson Bight Beach Community

One very unique aspect about life on Roatan is that we do not have formal mailing addresses. There are a few street signs, house numbers and very few mailboxes. Instead you describe where you live by referencing neighbors or close businesses, for example, “The house in front of John Smith’s house” or “Turn left at the carwash, 4th house on the beach.” The only regular mail you receive is your electric and water bills which are placed in your gate or front door. The good news is, no more junk mail! There is a business RAS (Roatan Air Service) that rents out post office boxes, which is handy if you want to receive packages from the US frequently.

I have lived at  Casa Sol y Mar  for several years now. It’s in a simple neighborhood on the beach in Gibson Bight Point/Sandy Bay. A road made of sand runs between the ocean and a line of small homes. On each end of the road is a patch of mangrove trees. There are about 25 homes and a small community of condos. The people in my community are friendly, family oriented locals and expats who have either made Roatan their home or escape from the cold weather every winter!

Even though it is a small neighborhood, there are many things to enjoy here. Excellent dive spots, are just a short swim from the shore providing us with exceptional diving and snorkeling. Boats filled with divers from all over the world visit these dive spots everyday. We are also very lucky to have a local deep sea fisherman ”Black Indian” in our neighborhood. He has lived and fished in the deep waters surrounding Roatan his whole life. Going out fishing with him, you are not only guaranteed to catch fish but you will also be entertained by stories of his many experiences at sea. Another fun spot in our neighborhood is the baseball/soccer field. Most afternoons you can catch a game of baseball or soccer with bleachers filled with enthusiastic fans. There are 4 docks on our road which often host me and my neighbors for a stunning view of the sunset. Sometimes I take it for granted that I get to see the sun sink below the water everyday. At the end of the road you will come to the Gibson Bight Marina which offers a safe parking place for many boats in Sandy Bay, West End and West Bay. A short walk along the beach will lead you to popular hotels, restaurants and dive shops in Sandy Bay including The Beach Grill / Blue Bahia Resort,  Octopus Dive School    Tranquil Seas, and Mayoka Lodge.

Gibson Bight Point/Sandy Bay is an enjoyable place to live and a great area to spend family vacations. If you are interested in renting a home or buy Roatan Real Estate in my neighborhood,  contact me directly
