Dining & Nightlife on Water Island

The quintessential image of island living is sipping on a cocktail with toes in the sand, and the water’s edge just steps away. And this is what the dining and nightlight options on Water Island offer.

For lunch options everyday head to Honeymoon Beach for a bite at one of two beachside watering holes. Dinghy’s Beach Bar & Grill and neighboring Heidi’s Honeymoon Grill are favorites with locals and boaters. Grab some fish, a burger or sandwich with a refreshing cocktail and kickback for a laid back afternoon.

Nightlife on Water Island

How does watching a movie on the beach sound to you; or listening to a live band on the beach; or having dinner on the beach? Everything is on the beach on Water Island.

Dinghy’s Beach Bar & Grill regularly is open late during season and often has live music. Dancing under the stars in the sand; so cool and so Water Island! Heidi’s Honeymoon Grill does Monday night movies. The screen is suspended between coconut trees and movie goers pull up and watch from their chairs or right from their golf carts. Where else can you watch a movie on the beach?

Visit the bulletin board in Phillip’s Landing, where the ferry dock is located, for announcements of special offerings and events at Dinghy’s and Heidi’s; or just stop by and ask them!

Residents know how to have a good time so don’t be shy while on your visit. After a few days on Water Island you will probably get acquainted with much of the population, if you choose to, and can join them for a drink and a chat at Dinghy’s and Heidi’s!
