Owned and operated by an American family since 1956, featuring 75 rooms all with stunning ocean views, Pompano Beach Club is perched on a hill in Southampton Parish and offers a dramatic panorama of the turquoise Atlantic Ocean. The resort also boasts the unique distinction of being located adjacent to an enormous sand bar, so guests can wade nearly 400 yards in knee- to chest-deep water at low tide, while less adventurous guests can relax on the large private pink sand beach complete with kayaks, paddleboards, and Hobie Cat sailboats. It’s just one of the reasons the resort has so many repeat visitors—families and couples of all ages who also enjoy its proximity to Port Royal Golf Course, a neighboring 6,842-yard course that’s home to the PGA Grand Slam of Golf. The ocean view rooms are basic, yet spacious, with rattan or wicker furniture, tropical décor, and private balconies or patios. And if you’d rather not bear the 45-minute taxi ride to Hamilton for a meal, the resort has three very good on-site restaurants: Cedar Room, Coral Reef Café, and Ocean Grill, the best of the bunch with 30-foot-high, floor-to-ceiling windows that face the water (perfect for a romantic sunset dinner).
