After our recent island visits, the striking advantage of Coffee Island is its proximity to an international airport. It would be possible to arrive at Coffee Island within an hour of leaving Belize City airport. The island can be seen in the distance from Belize City at 9km away.
The boat was able to land directly on the beach without the need for a jetty
What is the island like?
You will see from the pictures that the island is surrounded for about a third of its perimeter on the north and eastern sides by ‘palmita’ stakes forming a low wall roughly between 3 and 8 metres offshore. These were probably erected to protect the island from erosion.
The northern part of the island is quite open, with palm trees, other shrubs, and grass. There are several small beachy areas, with sea grasses growing in the sheltered area inside the ‘palmita’ fence. The southern part of the island is more overgrown with mangroves.
The island is almost completely flat, with ground level roughly 0.6 m above sea level. There is currently no development on the island.
There is good mobile phone signal on the island.
What is around the island?
How big is the island?
The island at present is about 1.1 acres (0.45 hectares). Included in the sale is the space out to the palmita fence which we could backfill with dredged material to increase the space available to about 1.5 acres.
Are we buying the island?
Are we getting our own boat?
What would we have to do next?
