Property Description

EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST are invited for these exclusive waterfront blocks, available for sale on a pristine private island, located South of Santo in Vanuatu.

There are only 10 blocks for private purchase on the 57 hectares island.

Each block has 70m of fabulous sandy beach and incredible untouched coral reef to dive and snorkel.

The ownership of a block includes ownership of 10% undivided share on the remaining area of the island, other than the 10 private blocks.

The draft proposed subdivision is outlined in the plan shown here and it will include the construction of a jetty for good access to the island by owners.
The development will start implementation depending on the expression of interest received and when at least one block is under contract.

This is not just another island, Urelapa is a very special gift to Earth in the South Pacific, offering an incredible coastline of calm waters and surf, white sandy beaches and pristine coral reef, a fresh water lake, an ex airstrip and luscious tropical vegetation.

All of that just 2.5km off the mainland with a 12 minutes boat ride and about 26km from the International Pekoa Airport in Luganville.

Urelapa is located just South of the large island of Santo in Vanuatu. This mostly untouched and undeveloped archipelago of 83 islands is conveniently positioned in close proximity to Noumea and Fiji and it is only two or three and a half hours flight from Australia and New Zealand.

Secluded, untouched, pristine and yet so close to main source tourism markets and metropolitan centres in the South Pacific.

The Island in summary:

• 57 Hectares of Private Island in a friendly tax jurisdiction
• approximately 1.7 km long and 700m wide, inhabited
• 800 m ex grass airstrip (currently not usable as it needs to be cleared)
• 4+ hectares inland fresh water lagoon – possible marina
• 1,000+ metres of white sandy beaches
• Deep water access and mooring possibilities
• 75 year Commercial Tourism Lease commencing November 2006
• 35 minute boat ride from Luganville Santo
• Development potential or exclusive private residential property
• Pristine coral reef and marine life

In December 2003, a group of international scientists have succeeded in retracing over a 23,000 year period of history of the coral reef surrounding Urelapa. This fossil reef bears the record of the longest continuous growth – 17,000 years – ever studied by scientists.

Purchasing one of these rare blocks would give the buyer the opportunity to build an incredible beach house, be totally private, share the island with only 9 other owners and secure ownership of a very unique yet convenient piece of real estate in the Pacific.

Sample concepts of luxury beach houses are shown here.
