Katafanga Island - Fiji
Lau Islands, Katafanga, located in Fiji, also known as the Blue Lagoon, ticks all the boxes when it comes down to a panoramic island. It’s one of the last freehold islands in the South Pacific.
There’s little to nothing to be done to make this island your own, as there’s already a ring road, runway, reservoir and staff housing on the 90-hectare site. At the moment there are twenty villas that are under construction, leaving a new owner free to come in and complete the development with their unique vision in mind. It also has a runway, golf course, ring roads, water reservoir and jetties.
The entire island is 1.6 kilometres long and just 500 metres wide. It’s an island that will appeal to any lottery jackpot winner who has dreams of breaking away from the city as it is covered in swaying coconut palm trees, tropical vegetation and white beaches.
The 2,000-hectare turquoise lagoon boasts a healthy reef and is home to schools of tropical fish and bioluminescent organisms which light up at night.
Katafanga is an hour’s flight from Nadi International Airport, and by boat, the island is just over 200 nautical miles from Port Denarau Marina. Fortunately, there is a natural 60-metre break in the coral reef, which will allow superyachts to pass through and enjoy a sheltered anchorage within the lagoon.
Katafanga Island is listed for sale for $17 million and is an ideal business opportunity.
