St Lucia - 3.3 Acre Ocean Front Property with Direct Beach Access

This week we present a rare opportunity to acquire a 3.3 acres of ocean front land for sale in La Toc, St Lucia with beach house, direct beach access and tremendous development potential.

La Toc Beach, St Lucia


Located within the quiet residential neighbourhood of La Toc, this 3.3 acre parcel of land is located right next door to the flagship Sandals Regency La Toc Golf Resort and Spa and enjoys access to 2 beaches.

Private stairs lead down from the property to La Toc Beach, which is one of the finest golden sand beaches on St Lucia and shared with the Sandals resort, and to a second intimate and secluded beach that can be used for private events.

One of the highlights is that the property extends to the "splash of the wave". Therefore, there is no need for a government lease, because ownership is forever.

The property features several existing structures including a fully operational income generating beach house with a 7 year successful track record.

La Toc is a quiet area on St Lucia's north-western coast located close to the capital Castries and Vigie Airport.

St Lucia has a flourishing tourism industry with stay over tourist arrivals during the first 7 months of 2014 increasing approximately 7% compared to the same period in 2013. Several new hotels such as Capella Marigot Bay are set to open and the real estate sector has been showing positive signs of growth.

The island is also more accessible than ever, with direct flights to St Lucia from the USA, Canada and Europe, including a daily JetBlue flight from New York and regular BA and Virgin Atlantic flights from London Gatwick.

Idyllic Carriacou - A Caribbean Real Estate Investor's Dream

If you've been searching the Caribbean for an island that offers beachfront real estate in an idyllic location with the laid back charm of yesteryear, look no further than Carriacou.

Located in the Grenadines in the south-eastern Caribbean, this 13 square mile island forms part of the nation of Grenada which also includes Carriacou, Petit Martinique and a handful of smaller islands: Ronde Island, Caille Island, Diamond Island, Large Island, Saline Island, and Frigate Island.

Known for its low key luxury, beautiful beaches and lush greenery, the islands have a flourishing high end tourism sector renowned for sailing and diving. Tourism arrivals increased 18.6% in the first half of 2014 - the highest rate in the entire Caribbean.

The property market has started to attract foreign interest too. A recently introduced Citizenship by Investment Program has started to stimulate Grenada's real estate sector. However, tiny Carriacou is, for the time being, a relatively unknown investment location "reserved" for the lucky few foreign property buyers "in the know."

Home to just 8,000 people, Carriacou is a popular vacation destination for Grenadians, famous for its beautiful white sand beaches, green hills and spectacular coral reefs which lie just off shore.

This week we present the opportunity to acquire 1 of just a handful of 5 bedroom luxury beachfront homes for sale on Carriacou.

Located just south of The Bahamas, the Turks and Caicos Islands is one of the Caribbean's most sophisticated luxury real estate and tourism markets.

There is no property tax, no income tax and no capital gains tax.

The archipelago is stunningly beautiful too. The pristine beaches and reefs frequently rank highest in lists of the world's best and have helped to establish the location as a preferred investment location for many American, Canadian and British real estate investors.

All this just a 75 minute flight from Miami!
