Navy Beach Expands to the Caribbean

NAVY BEACH EXPANDS TO THE CARIBBEAN with Exciting Openings on St. Thomas and St. Maarten in Late 2019 and Early 2020: After a decade of successfully operating its flagship in MontaukNavy Beach, a seaside gem beloved by those “in the know” in the Hamptons and beyond, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Island Global Yachting Ltd. to expand into IGY’s luxury Caribbean superyacht destinations at Yacht Haven Grande St. Thomas and Yacht Club at Isle de Sol St. Maarten. 

Navy Beach St. Thomas will open in December 2019 with prime waterfront positioning at the sprawling Yacht Haven Grande and will feature a delightful mix of fully covered and sun-dappled outdoor seating for more than 100 guests, a comfortable outdoor lounge and 20-seat bar, all with unobstructed views of the surrounding yachts and Charlotte Amalie Harbor, which serves an impressive collection of the world’s finest megayachts as well as an array of sailing, sport fishing and other pleasure crafts. The bright, open-air nautically inspired space spills out onto Yacht Haven Grande’s prized “canon lawn,” making it the perfect venue for live music performances, private events and weddings.

Just as the Navy Beach lifestyle has come to epitomize stylish seaside dining with surreal sunsets and a joyful sense of celebration woven throughout the experience, Navy Beach St. Maarten will raise the bar even further as the brand’s new flagship when it opens in early 2020 in Simpson Bay at the Yacht Club at Isle de Sol (home to 40 megayacht berths). Following a multi-million dollar redesign of this exclusive lagoon-front facility, Navy Beach St. Maarten will boast a variety of enticing indoor-outdoor elements and will be able to comfortably host events for up to 250 people in this sprawling two-story venue that includes an intimate water-view dining area with cozy banquette seating, a 20-seat horseshoe-shaped teak bar, a gaming area, and a handful of coveted daybeds facing the expansive central swimming pool with surrounding tropically landscaped patio and lounge seating. 

To take it a coveted step further, the über-sexy Sky Deck overlooking the marina and ongoing “yacht show” is like an elevated island in and of itself, ideal for smaller gatherings (up to 75 people) and exclusive affairs. The Sky Deck has a full bar, seating and events space with unobstructed views of the surrounding yachts, waterfront and offers a perfect perch to watch the sunsets that have become synonymous with Navy Beach. 

About Navy Beach

Having been dubbed “one of the most buzzed about new restaurants and bars in Montauk,” and a “perfect destination for summer dining” by The New York Times, Navy Beach Montauk opened in 2010 and offers a memorable dining experience for the whole family in a beach setting with coastal cuisine and breathtaking sunsets. Navy Beach is located on a private beach overlooking Fort Pond Bay and delivers a high-quality fish centric menu with an emphasis on sustainable seafood and local seasonal produce. This laid-back, family-friendly eatery quickly developed into a hotspot for yachts and a coveted favorite for private events and destination weddings. Philanthropic efforts are centered around supporting the Navy SEAL Foundation (over $175,000 has been raised since 2013).
