Public Access Lagoons


Crystal Lagoons New Revolution:
Creating the Meeting Point of the 21st Century.

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 model that takes tropical turquoise lagoons beyond the private-accessed 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.

These lagoon destinations allow millions of people to fulfill their dream of living just steps away from beautiful beaches. Creating a truly unique beach experience, these Public Access Lagoons are host to alluring amenities such as restaurants, beach clubs, water sports, retail stores, amphitheaters, recreational and cultural activities, concerts, outdoor cinemas and much more.

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

  • Retail Centers
  • Public Parks
  • Golf Courses
  • Entertainment District
  • Casinos
  • Stadiums
  • Vacant Land
  • Horse Racetracks
  • Amusement & Water Parks
  • Ski Resorts
  • Zoos
  • University Campuses


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.
