Amazing Beach Front Property in Santa Elena Bay Costa Rica For Sale
La Bahía at Santa Elena is flanked by large tracts of conservation land, including Santa Rosa National Park (the nation’s second largest park, with 130,000 acres of protected mountain, forest, savannah, and coastline), Playa Cuajiniquil National Park, and several private reserves. There are three uninhabited islands within a 2km radius of La Bahía: Isla Muñecos, Isla Lora, and Isla Despensa. Isla Bolaños, a national bird reserve with an attractive white sand beach, is on the other side of the small peninsula.
La Bahía is a 142-acre tract of pristine, unoccupied land boasting hills that rise to more than 400ft in a series of semicircular, “cove-like” formations. These natural amphitheaters have the beautiful Gulf of Santa Elena as their stage and the giant Santa Rosa Mountains as a backdrop. La Bahía has more than half a mile of coastline with one main white-sand beach, two small rocky coves, and several precipitous rock formations. It’s a scenic place that never fails to charm its visitors.
One of the attributes that make La Bahía very unique is the adjacent Puerto Manzanillo. Despite the name, this tiny “port” is better described as a picturesque beach where local villagers anchor their “pangas” or small fishing boats. Late in the morning the boats come back to shore and unload their catch into ice-filled containers, which are then taken to different markets and hotels. Any visitor is free to score delicious, ultra-fresh fish, directly with the fishermen. Through new sources of private funding and the creative work of talented professionals, Puerto Manzanillo is to become a very attractive lure for a burgeoning channel of visitors.
