Wandering the marina at Yacht Haven Grande to marvel at some of the stunning megayachts that call St Thomas home is an elite experience in itself. The near 50-slip marina is the premier facility for these beautiful ships, some over 450 feet long.
The area's Yacht Haven Grande can also keep you occupied with duty-free shopping and plenty of places to grab a bite or just relax with a cocktail or two.
Upscale brands are plentiful at Yacht Haven Grande, which was rated “Best Shopping” for three years by the Virgin Island Daily News Reader Poll. Recognizable international brands such as Bebe, Bulgari, Coach, Ferragamo, Gucci and Louis Vuitton are among the designer stores, and the site also has a wealth of jewelry shops. Unique stores catering to pets, Caribbean crafts, cigars and electronics are all in the line-up too.
If you are looking for dining options, consider Fat Turtle, a hip spot featuring Caribbean flavors with a touch of fun–how can you not smile with a rubber ducky floating in your cocktail? There's also Grande Cru, an upscale wine bar offering tasting flights and interesting cocktails created by mixologists. Look for Mediterranean-inspired tapas plates.
The marina also hosts various events throughout the year including a local farmer’s market, performing arts, yoga and more.
Yacht Haven Grande is open daily and year round. It is St Thomas’ only true upscale shopping destination and is highly regarded for its duty-free shopping, so ensure you have a copy of your travel documents if requested at certain stores.
