We are delighted to present prime development land on Union Island which is one of the most beautiful unspoilt islands in SVG.
This is a large parcel of development land with panoramic sea views in an idyllic setting on Union Island located in the Cadastral District of Richmond of the Island as shown on the Lands and Survey Department registered survey Plan No 1136 Survey Order No P452/09 below. It measures 20,000M2 (4 acres) offering future owners the ability to create the home of their dreams in a peaceful environment, or alternatively for development of luxury holiday homes or a tourism project.
It is a rare opportunity to acquire a parcel of land of this size for either as a long term investment or to park capital on a small island that will undoubtedly appreciate in the future as an inflation hedge. It is equally an excellent chance to gain a foothold on this unspoiled island that is perfectly placed to enjoy everything the Caribbean has to offer and more but as yet, unknown so far, by many. Union Island is one of the most beautiful unspoiled islands of the SVG archipelago comprising a collection of 36 islands scattered like jewels in the surrounding seas.
Apart from the obvious benefits of the consistently good weather and there is pleasure and enjoyment on a small island drawing tourists [See link to website uinon.island.com – ‘Your Caribbean Getaway’] there is also the Easterval celebration that takes place at Easter. In addition there has been much investment in the Island over the years like kitesurfing [See Inset YouTube video ‘Introducing Union Island’] and more recently the ongoing construction of the $40M Secret Garden Resort – https://www.stvincenttimes.com/secret-garden-resort-union-island/
Although the Island is just 9 square kilometres and is approximately 3 miles long and 1 mile wide the geographical landscape and hills make the island feel much bigger. Normally the Island has close to 3,000 residents although the population increases due to the influx of tourists throughout the year and yet it still manages to retain a charming relaxed atmosphere and easy way of life. Clean waters, a booming yachting scene and the two main towns of Ashton and Clifton are just a short drive away from the land on the concrete road as is Union Island Airport [IATA: UNI, ICAO: TVSU] near Clifton. The Airport mainly serves domestic flights to and from the main Island of SVG and is a major destination for flights to the other principal inhabited islands of SVG and also some regular and shared international flights to Barbados, Carriacou, Martinique, Grenada and St. Lucia.
The land itself sits on a gently sloping hill with scenic sea views overlooking Richmond Bay, with water, electricity connected and internet access, the opportunities are enormous. It is a rural setting with a few adjoining residential properties on the northern, southern and eastern boundaries and on the western boundary is a state-owned dry forest which is protected and offers remarkable biodiversity. There are a few neighbouring properties in and around the land ensuring the location is not at all isolated.
In summary, purchasing this land is a once in a lifetime chance to develop a unique project that should not be missed for the following reasons …

Union Island…location and tourism…
The Island is situated just 40 Km north of Grenada, 60 Km south of St Lucia and 200 Km southwest of Barbados and a very attractive proposition for tourism businesses and especially those connected to sailing and water sports. The clear waters surrounding the island are a major attraction for kitesurfing [Pro-Centre Kite School – See the YouTube inset video] snorkelling and scuba diving and the island offers an attractive spot to stop off whilst yachting the Caribbean.
For those who enjoy sailing the options are endless with cruising available among the many islands that make up St Vincent & the Grenadines which is a tranquil paradise. The often deserted beaches of Union Island are simply outstandingly beautiful attracting tourism far and wide which is a key to its future prosperity.
The main island of St Vincent and the Grenadines is also a growing tourist destination with the modern Argyle International Airport opened in February 2017. The Airport accommodates both international flights including the UK, Europe and US and it is an ideal base from which to visit most of the other inhabited islands either by the ferry services that are also available or by a more leisurely yacht and/or a cruise ship..
In short this land is being offered at a very competitive price for a quick sale and should not be missed if you wish to avoid disappointment!

ABOUT THE AREA
The SVG archipelago is made up of a collection of 36 islands scattered like jewels in the surrounding seas and the major ones being Carriacou, Young Island, Bequia, Canouan, Union Island, Mayreau, Petit St Vincent, and Palm Island and the remainder of which are smaller and mostly uninhabited. All are dependant on the nation of SVG which shares marine borders with Barbados, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela. Union Island is known for its vibrant culture, with a mix of African, European, and Caribbean influences. The main language spoken is English but also a minority speak French owing to French colonialism before being replaced by UK colonialism until SVG independence.
The geographic location of Union Island makes it one of the most spectacular Caribbean Islands as it is surrounded by the beautiful Tobago Cays Marine Park and several other stunning private island resorts like Palm Island, Mustique and Petit St Vincent.
