This stunning peninsula spans over a length of 126km and is 5km wide in the Southern most region and 15km in the northern region, bordered on the Atlantic side by endless stretches of beautiful beaches and on the western side by Lake Mangueira.
Part of the charm of this land lies in the fact that it is totally private, yet located near the border of Brazil, and not too far from the world famous exclusive resort of Punta del Este in Uruguay.
The Peninsula is made up of numerous beaches some of which are for sale:
(indicated by the blue squares on the picture above)
1. Coronilha Brasileira - 49 hectare
2. Santa Monica do Brazil - 5 hectare
3. Farroupilha - 56
4. Belo Horizonte - 40 hectare
5. Jardim Lagomar "Zona B"- 203 hectare
6. Sarita - 550 hectare
The size of the lake is approximately 880 sq./km. Lake Mangueira is a low-lying flat land and wetland area predominantly composed of swamps, dunes and sand and peat forests. Restingas are found on sandy and nutrient-impoverished soils that are associated with low-elevation plains characterized by the presence of beach ridges and lagoon systems. Restinga forests vary from shrub vegetation to 15 meter tall forests, which are distributed over mosaics and soil gradients from the coastal zone inland. Several species on the brink of extinction are found in these forests, including plants such as Bumelia capitata and Jacquinia brasiliensis, an amphibian called Bruno's casque-headed frog, a bird - Herpsilochmus pectoralis as well as a mammal named Lutra longicaudis. The remaining vegetation is made up of Acacia and Pine forests, grassy shrubs and grassy plains. The Lake has been declared a nature reserve by the state to preserve the peninsula with its wildlife and flora.
The lake has a bright green almost transparent color. The purity of the water is a really inviting for divers, to do water sports as well as fishing. Fishermen, by the way, are the most frequent visitors to the region. Fish that inhabit its waters, amongst others are, catfish, lungfish and kingfish.
This large expanse of freshwater is also of enormous scientific importance. It is the home to microalgae called Spirulina, which is capable of absorbing large amounts of air pollutants due to its high PH. Spirulina is also known to be very beneficial to human health.
The eastern margin of the Mangueira lagoon is characterized by a large Aeolian dune field of great beauty, height and significant environmental importance. These dunes serve as habitat for several species of mammals, birds, insects and plants, and contain archaeological evidences of the presence of Paleo-Indian. Its northern edge is Taim wetlands and the southern the Sales wetland. The western margin is made up of Pleistocene sediments. The presence of "concheiros" is remarkable in the adjoining ocean beach, representing large and thick fossiliferous concentrations, which are long and thick concentrations of mollusk, crustacean and marine vertebrate fossils as well as Pleistocene terrestrial mammals that have been removed from submerged deposits and transported to the beach-through coastal dynamics.
A few above mentioned threatened species live in the sandbar of the forests. There are also seals, penguins, various types of rodents, capybaras, and a variety of buck, turtles, flamingos, hawks as well as abundant fish in both the lake and the sea. Dolphins and whales are also common.
This peninsula lends itself to various types of projects, big and small. It is a unique opportunity with endless possibilities.
Presently the peninsula is only accessible by 4 wheel drive, boat or helicopter. The nearest international airport is in Porto Alegre in Brazil. The international airport of Punta del Este, Uruguay is also easily accessible. Montevideo, Uruguay is 400 km away and the distance to Buenos Aires, Argentina is about 500 kilometers. The overall area of the Peninsula is part of the municipality of Santa Vitoria do Palmar in Brazil and is free to plan for various projects. Registered in RGI (Registration Geral de Vitoria do Palmar Imoveis St.). Infrastructure development has been pre-approved. All construction projects on the peninsula would be approved by the Regional Building Department and the Environmental Protection Agency.
