Beachbreak developer Tony McGinty and onsite representative Luke Staunton take in the salty air at Casuarina.

CASUARINA development Beachbreak has sold 50% of its seaside land since launching in December.

With settlements due in early May, many new landowners are busy preparing to lodge their housing plans with the Tweed Shire Council.

Developer Tony McGinty said he wasn't surprised the limited release was being snapped up so quickly in the "coastal hotspot."

"What we are seeing is the sea change lifestyle still attracting buyers, especially given the finite beachside land releases," Mr McGinty said.

"We are seeing strong local interest from buyers on the Gold Coast and also Brisbane who are looking for a quieter way of life, yet close to beaches and amenities."

Mr McGinty said the blocks were a good opportunity to invest while the market is affordable.

"The development was designed to meet the market, we want to give families a fair go and get them into their own home in a fantastic setting," Mr McGinty said.

Mr McGinty said cashed-up buyers in Brisbane were also seeking out the location as an investment property.

"The sea change phenomenon is always a strong investment," he said.

"It's a lifestyle investment that will always hold its own."

The development is just 150m from the beach.
