Welcome to Arenas Bay – Nicaragua’s Premier Coastal Community

Just two hours away from Managua Nicaragua, a new community is rising.

Located on 400 acres gracefully hugging the sun-washed western coast of Nicaragua’s Pacific Riviera and just 45 miles north of the Costa Rican border, this extraordinary location is defined by three secluded bays carving the contours of two miles of majestic coastline.

The waters fade from sapphire to crystal blue… The sand shimmers golden and bright… Naturally lush vegetation combines with dry tropical forest to blanket the surrounding hillsides, sheltering and nurturing a vast array of native flora and fauna.

Arenas Bay, Nicaragua’s premier oceanfront destination, is just getting started. About 25 homes are either finished or under construction in the first two phases, with more expected to come online this year.

When fully realized, this comprehensive community is destined to be the finest neighborhood on Nicaragua's western coast. Arenas Bay includes high quality homes and villas, with planned amenities such as a Restaurant, Sunset View Bar with stunning ocean views, Relaxation Terrace with pool, and the AQUA Wellness Resort. Comprehensive rental programs for owners, internet communication services, and 24-hour Security are already being introduced, while additional amenities are included in Arenas Bay’s master plan.
