Amelia Island is a smal island situated in the Lark Caye Range in southern and is approximatley 15 minutes from the mainland of Placencia. Ameila Island is 0.394 acres in size and boasts its own private reef on the northern part of the island with numerous areas with nice coral heads and various species of marine life. In the southern part of the island there is a mixed sand bar with coral area that is excellent for snorkelling. On the east part of the island, it has crystal clear waters and one can walk into the ocean for around 50 feet in shallow sandy waters and one can see Star Fish, different species of fish, and other marine life; in the north one can see and view the bottom of the pristine crystal clear waters excellent for snorkelling!
The south western part of the island is the deepest area of the island and would have a depth between 3-6 feet and can be done deeper if needed. The island is ideal for any development whether your interested in living off the grid, would like to invest in a fishing lodge or a day tour based business as it is very close to amenities, as shopping areas, gas stations, medical facilities, transportation services, airstrip, and not to mention the many resorts and restaurants on the peninsula.
The island was filled a few years back but due to compaction and erosion the island will require additional filling. One can apply to Ministry of Natural Resources for a dredging permit and reclaim the island and the 66 feet reserve surrounding the island. There are numerous islands surrounding Amelia Island in this Lark Caye Range and there are at least 3 houses in the area which gives you a sense of development. The largest island that is developed is approximately 4 to 5 miles from Amelia Island which is right at the Great Barrier Reef and the island is South Water Caye!
