Local Area

Located alongside the scenic and historic Charlotte Amalie Harbor in St. Thomas, USVI, Yacht Haven Grande is a favorite destination for mega-yachts, sport fishers and sailing vessels. Charlotte Amalie was founded in 1681 by Danish settlers and still has some signs of the bustling colonial life that once existed there. Take a walk on the steep stairs including the 99 steps that were created from the ships that visited Charlotte Amalie as a trading post. The rich Caribbean weather welcomes many outside activities such as snorkeling, diving, fishing and kayaking. You can explore many natural habitats during the day or night. Yacht Haven Grande Marina is at the center of it all including the Shops at Yacht Haven Grande, an 80,000 square foot retail space with restaurants, entertainment, activites and pampering.
