Public Access Lagoons


The Meeting Point of the 21st Century.
Crystal Lagoons® New Revolution.

After innovating the world’s residential real estate market by bringing idyllic beach life to the most unimaginable places, Crystal Lagoons has begun a new revolution:

Public Access Lagoons (PAL). A New Lifestyle.

Public Access Lagoons is an innovative concept patented by Crystal Lagoons that takes tropical turquoise lagoons beyond the private-access residential market to new places such as public parks, retail centers, golf courses, race tracks, and more, by offering a ticketed entry to the public.

There are many places in the world with available land, suitable for the construction of Public Access Lagoons:

  • Malls
  • Public Parks
  • Golf Courses
  • Horse Racetracks
  • Ski Resorts
  • Zoos / Aquariums
  • University Campuses
  • Vacant Land
  • Amusement Parks
  • Water Parks
  • Casinos
  • Social Clubs


Public Access Lagoons will be the most alluring destination in every city.

From dusk till dawn, people in cities around the world will be able to enjoy themselves in a relaxing and entertaining environment thanks to Public Access Lagoons. Any day can start with a session of water-side yoga or with a few swim laps around the lagoon before work. Later on, guests can practice an array of watersports before enjoying a delicious lunch with friends and family at a lagoon-side restaurant. During the evening, visitors can watch a movie on a giant screen while lying on the beach, enjoy a concert series in the amphitheater, or simply appreciate a beautiful sunset surrounded by the water… all within minutes of their front door! These unique lagoons create a mesmerizing waterfront destination where people will gather to celebrate birthdays, weddings and memorable moments.

Public Access Lagoons provide the opportunity to live the experience of a tropical paradise during any season of the year, as the lagoon can be partially or completely covered by a transparent dome to accommodate an idyllic beach life even under cold winter temperatures.


Alovera Beach:
Bringing beach life to Madrid.

Despite Madrid being landlocked and three hours away from the Mediterranean Sea, Crystal Lagoons amenity will now provide thousands of people in Madrid with the opportunity to escape from the hectic city life and relax on the beach in just a short drive. Only 40 minutes from Madrid, Alovera Beach will feature a 7 acre crystalline lagoon surrounded by 3.5 acres of white sand beaches. The beautiful property will have slides, kiddy pools, restaurants, snack bars and the possibility to practice water sports such as kayaks, sailboats and paddleboats.

Blue Tree Phuket, Thailand:
The new meeting point in Phuket.

Because there is nothing like family entertainment, Blue Tree Phuket is positioning itself as the main family attraction on this popular island in southern Thailand.

Blue Tree, Thailand's first Public Access Lagoons, is scheduled to open in 2019. The first phase of the project will feature a water and entertainment park, a four-story beach club, an exercise and commercial area designed in Phuket’s ancestral and traditional Chino-Portuguese architectural style, and a kid’s club.

In addition to this, there will be 17 stylish restaurants that will provide options for all tastes. All of which will be centered around Blue Tree's main attraction: Blue Tree Lagoon, designed by Crystal Lagoons, that will offer paddle boarding, paddle boats, kayaks, and snorkeling.

Jungle Island, Miami:
Combining a traditional Miami Zoo with beach life.

Crystal Lagoons is bringing together the animal kingdom and the water world, thanks to its partnership with ESJ Capital Partners. ESJ is crafting a new business model for an already popular destination in one of the most sought-after tourist spots on Watson Island in Miami, Florida.

Jungle Island is one of South Florida’s main landmark attractions, featuring educational camps, safaris and live shows that offer the opportunity to see and interact with the animal kingdom.

With the help of Crystal Lagoons, the park will expand its amenities, building a large lagoon that will help transform the park by adding a relaxing, appealing beach experience in to its already impressive offerings, such as zip lines with panoramic views of Miami, children adventures, water slides and a private beach club.

Due to its partnership with Crystal Lagoons, Jungle Island projects a huge growth in ticket sales and a vast increase in visitors from 300,000 to more than 1,000,000 per year.

PALs in different stages of planning, design, construction or operation

The launch of this new concept has been remarkable: there are already 160 projects in different stages of development and negotiation, represented on all continents. In the United States alone, Crystal Lagoons is planning 110 projects in 22 different states.
