Just what you’ve always dreamed of – an opportunity to acquire a unique and beautiful island in a tranquil and protected corner of the Philippines.
The island offers a number of possibilities, with the potential to develop a resort business if required. Or you may wish to keep the island to yourself, your family and friends.
Just 75 miles from the Philippines capital of Manila, this unique island is located in paradisical Anilao, in the county’s Batangas Province. Ligpo is one of the 7,107 islands which make up the nation of the Philippines, and is set in a protected marine area, just 10 miles from the famous Verde Island Passage, one of the most diverse underwater ecosystems on the planet. The island’s house, which has been newly renovated, features four en suite bedrooms, and the spacious and versatile accommodation enjoys stunning views of Balayan Bay. The island also features a very large outdoor seawater swimming pool that can be easily filled and emptied. There is also a room for further construction if desired, including space for a helipad.
Ligpo Island uses power from the mainland, where just seven minutes away by boat, there’s a large car parking area included in the property. The island’s massive fresh water tanks use rain run-off to help keep the gardens lusciously green. About 10 minutes away are the fish, fruit and vegetable markets at Lemery. Even closer is the historic town of Taal, famed for its beautiful ancestral houses, as well as the gorgeous Taal Basilica, the largest church in Southeast Asia.
Directly opposite the Island some 150 metres away is a stunning private beach covering approximately 6 acres. White coral sand with a back drop of luscious trees, the current owner has developed his own private resort, with buildings complimenting and in harmony with the beautiful surroundings. The largest building, a two-bedroom one story villa, is over 40 yards long with a very large lounge area and entrance hall. Then there are five African style round houses each with a diameter of 6 yards and being a mixture of two double stories and three single stories. All of the accommodation overlooks the white coral sand beach and sea, with rising ground covered in luscious vegetation to the rear. Next to the round houses there is another large one story building which has been turned into a dining area with full kitchen facilities and a very large storage area and terrace. Other accommodation and buildings include –
- A building designed and built by the owner in the style of an English medieval pub. This has excellent potential as an area to entertain friends and guests.
- A bar on the beach. Constructed of strong bamboo and set away from the main accommodation, a place to relax with a drink!
- A bamboo “look out” house. The highest positioned building on the beach, breathtaking views of the beach, island and surrounding bay are enjoyed from this quiet and peaceful hideaway.
Both Ligpo Island and the neighbouring beach are offered for sale at 3,700,000 USD on a 999-year lease from the owners, making it easily acquired by non-Filipinos, and the island’s current onsite caretaker can be retained if required. Shared ownership may be an option with your friends and/or business associates or you may just want your private retreat. Being only two hours from Manila by car and potentially 20 minutes by helicopter, the property is in a highly sought after location.
