Palm Bay Club Paradise On "Temptation Island", Ambergris Caye, Belize
Welcome To Palm Bay Club!
Palm Bay Club is the most affordable subdivision on Ambergris Caye. This area of the island is undoubtedly one of the most pristine stretches of beach that Ambergris Caye has to offer. Due to its location near the Mexican border you will find high land elevations and beautiful waters. Palm Bay Subdivision offers extremely affordable home sites located just off the beach with magnificent views of the barrier reef and Caribbean Ocean.
THE UNIQUENESS OF PALM BAY CLUB - Also, Lots Still Available For Only $20,000
Palm Bay Club is unique on the whole coast of Central America. It is sheltered by the second longest barrier reef in the world (hey all you divers, here is a chance to grab a good retirement location). It is just a short distance from an international border and you could sleep in Palm Bay by night and enjoy life in a Mexican village by day on those days you are not fishing, diving, or windsurfing in the Belizean waters off of Palm Bay Club.
It is a great investment to diversify your portfolio with. Or, just own it knowing that you have your own PLACE OF FREEDOM near a loosely guarded international border where you can build and live inexpensively if you decide to live life stress free as it should be lived. If you build, there will be a demand for rentals in the future. So it can become a second income source for those who are willing to wait a while longer.
In Palm Bay Club you have the very best ambiance the Caribbean has to offer. Low rainfall, tropical palms that grow to the beach and the crystal clear and unpolluted turquoise water that extends out one half mile to the protection of the world's second best and longest diving and snorkeling reef.
PALM BAY CLUB HISTORY AND INFORMATION
The land now being developed as the Palm Bay Club has an exciting and romantic history. The area was known as Bacalar. The channel that separates Belize and Mexico is known as Boca Bacalar Chico or mouth of the small Bacalar channel. This channel was the work of the Mayan centuries ago who needed access to the seas from their settlements on the mainland.
The town of Bacalar is across the Mexican border near the bay of Chetumal. It was through the Boca Bacalar Chico that the Mayan were able to access the ocean from the bay. Later it was used by Spaniards and the English.
The Mexican town of Xcalac is four to five miles north and across the channel from the Palm Bay Club. Here food and building supplies can be purchased.
The Mayan's channel is an important and unique monument to the original inhabitants. It also became the demarcation line that separates Belize from Mexico and established the international border. The channel connected with the major trade routes of the Mayan.
The Palm Bay Club fronts on the beautiful lagoon which is protected by the barrier reef. At the southern part of the lagoon, the reef actually merges into the land at Rocky Point. To enter the lagoon by sea you must enter through one of the cuts or openings in the reef.
THE VISION OF THE ORIGINAL DEVELOPERS OF PALM BAY CLUB
The original developers of Palm Bay Club had a vision of single family, low impact development. They wanted to have restrictive covenants governing the development. The developers intended to assist the lot owners in identifying and selecting the most suitable architectural designs for the area utilizing solar energy and building materials indigenous to the area.
Because of the proximity to Mexico, some of the very attractive tiles and Mexican materials were intended by the developers to be utilized in conjunction with the Belizean hardwoods. Architectural designs done specifically for the area by the Frank Lloyd Wright Institute were to be made available at no cost to lot owners.
The area inside the lagoon is approximately 4 miles long. The future of this area as to commercial development is dependent on market demand, the construction of the road from San Pedro, the construction of a bridge across Boca Bacalar Chico into Mexico, and the construction of an airstrip in the area to accommodate commuter planes.
EARLY VISION OF THE THREE ORIGINAL DEVELOPERS OF PALM BAY CLUB
The original planners of the Palm Bay Club had a dream about what they wanted to accomplish for the Palm Bay Club development. I have quoted their original thoughts below and this is taken from the original source material on Palm Bay Club. I am hoping these ideas can be taken up and championed by all those who want these dreams fulfilled for the Palm Bay Club. The words below were penned in the early 1990s.
"The property management company will be combined with the first small low impact hotel to be built at Palm Bay to give a central location where rentals and services can be coordinated.
The developers of Palm Bay will react to market demand to make Palm Bay a unique resort that is responsive to the needs and the desires of the lot owners. They have created a community for people who are looking for security, peace and all the recreation that the sea and the reef have to offer without the commercialization of many of the destination resorts in the world.
The developers will preserve the environment and maintain the ambiance and enchantment of the area that was enjoyed by the Mayan royalty more than a millennium ago; and later, the Spanish and English adventurers. Palm Bay is that special place for those who want a resort that is different.
The developers believe that a road from San Pedro and the airstrip will be completed in the next few years. In the master plan, certain areas will be designated for hotel and condominium sites. There will also be an area designated for a small commercial facility to accommodate the residential population. Other considerations will be the environmental restraints."
