This Sapphire Beach Gem lot is located on the stunning Sapphire Beach north of Mahahual and is beautifully landscaped – ready for construction! Lots in Sapphire Beach are some of the deepest in all of Costa Maya, allowing your home to be hidden from the road, beyond the sight and sounds of passers-by. While secluded, Sapphire Beach Gem is not remote. It’s barely two kilometers (1.5 miles) from the paved beach access road to Mahahual. The lot is 20 meters wide and 115 meters deep and one of only 27 beachfront lots in this subdivision.
Perhaps most significantly, Sapphire Beach is now served by the new electrical grid extension from Rio Indio to Placer. This stretch of beach is the only non-commercial beach community to have access to dependable, Federally-subsidized electricity outside of town.
Sapphire Beach Gem is more than just a beach. It is a community with a standing citizens Association that is committed to maintaining the beaches, the roads and the flora and fauna of the beach environment. Sapphire Beach was once part of a larger coconut palm plantation, so coco laden palm trees are the predominant landscape feature. There are literally more than a hundred coconut palms flourishing between the sandy beach and the rear coastal road on just this lush lot, along with uva, banana, lime and avocado trees. The gently winding driveway insures total privacy from the road.
Only several hundred meters offshore, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef protects the coastline from possible turbulent seas. The coral reef, often known as the Mayan Barrier Reef, is the second largest barrier reef in the world – second only to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia – and extends 965 kilometers (600 miles) from the Yucatan Peninsula to Honduras. A diver’s and snorkeler’s paradise, the Reef is home to 500 hundred species of fish and one of the largest colonies of manatees on the planet. Once or twice per year, giant sea turtles, of which there are five species in these area waters, may waddle onto the beach in search of premier nesting sites.
All beaches are wonderful, but they’re not all the same. Some are known for surfing, some for surf fishing. Others are known for their playful waves or their quiet wading pools. Sapphire Beach is known for its powdery white sand and Caribbean aquamarine water – the kind of beachscape that sells postcards.
