What is the Long Bay Development and why should I invest my money in this area? one of the more impressive features about the Long Bay area is its commitment to the environment. The master plan for this area is to maintain the wetlands and streams in their natural state.This is obviously well underway and seed development has set aside an impressive 28 hectares for green-space. The screen-space includes heritage sites, walking trails, boardwalks, and many opportunities to explore the surrounding area. It provides wonderful adventures for all members of the family and it has a beautiful view of the Gulf.
