Crystal Lagoons Makes Idyllic Beach Paradises Possible Anywhere In South Africa1 July, 2016 / News
Property Wheel, one of the most recognized real estate media in South Africa highlights the arrival of Crystal Lagoons to Africa and the possibility to make idyllic beach paradises anywhere in that region.
The article explains that South Africa has, on average, more than 250 days of sunshine a year, making it an ideal climate for outdoor recreation. But the country’s sprawling and fast-growing urban centres, especially those inland, provide little by way of amenities within a short walk of where people live, work or spend holidays.
“Imagine how sought after a tourist destination or property development would become with the addition of an epic, pristine tuquoise body of water that requires up to 30 times less water than a golf course and only half of the water required by a park of the same size? Well, there’s no need to imagine. Water innovation and technology company, Crystal Lagoons, is bringing the world’s top amenity to South Africa”, add Property Wheel.
Crystal Lagoons, which recently launched into the South African and broader African market, is focused on solving some of humanity’s greatest challenges, such as water and energy scarcity. The multinational company has developed a way to create environmentally friendly crystalline lagoons – unlimited-sized crystal-clear bodies of waters at very low construction and maintenance costs. Furthermore, Crystal Lagoons can use any type of water: fresh, salt, or brackish. The technology provides a sustainable solution for the efficient use of water resources. The lagoons are ideal for a wide range of recreational activities, including swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and sailing, all within a safe environment, providing exceptional value to real estate projects as well as people who want to live at the water’s edge.
“This is of huge benefit to a country like South Africa where both water and energy are scarce resources. It creates opportunities for the large tracts of undeveloped inland areas, as well as the possibility of converting less accessible parts of our vast coastline into safe recreational areas for families to enjoy,” added Alastair Sinclair, Crystal Lagoon’s Regional Director for Africa.
Crystal Lagoons is an international innovation company, founded by scientist Fernando Fischmann, which has developed a patent-protected technology that allows the construction and maintenance of unlimited-size crystal clear lagoons at very low costs.
