Overseas buyers look to the Caribbean for a combination of lifestyle and long-term investment – looking to the future this last piece of freehold beachfront property in St Lucia looks like a smart option.
The Landings in St. Lucia has recently launched some new beachfront apartments which will be the last opportunity to buy freehold property directly on the beach in St. Lucia – ever. All property within 20m from the shoreline in St Lucia is owned by the government and can therefore only be leased. However, The Landings is built on the only reclaimed land on the island so it doesn’t count as shoreline, providing a unique opportunity to own a piece of Caribbean paradise outright.
The new apartments will be built as part of a final phase of construction in a traditional Caribbean style, with oversized terraces to appreciate the view. The apartments also look out onto the historic Pigeon Point, where the English vigorously defended the island from French attack on numerous occasions. The properties will be part of the fully functional five star resort which is built around a private yacht harbour in the north west of the island. The 800ft white sand beach overlooking Rodney Bay has clear calm waters and due to its west facing orientation, stunning sunsets.
