Summer 2018 sees the launch of Porto Montenegro Yacht Club’s (PMYC) new beach facility combining a waterfront bar and sun deck surrounded by lush subtropical vegetation, as well as an adjacent beach gym and volleyball court.
clubhouse, yet with its own distinct personality, the beach adds more than 1500 square meters of recreational space dotted with palm trees, bamboo and agapanthus. The main seating area features nautical blue, beige and white sunloungers, cabanas and hammocks, as well as a family zone with bean bags and beach bats, with full waiter service provided by the PMYC’s pool staff. A 40-seater bar overlooking the Yacht Club jetty of racing yachts has wooden decking, rattan furniture and classic deck chairs accompanied by a selection of dishes from the PMYC’s Mediterranean-inspired menu. An extensive cocktail list comes into its own each evening as the bar transforms into a relaxed outdoor venue for drinks and entertainment.
Themed parties and crew-friendly barbecues are scheduled all summer as well as a series of openair ‘silent cinema’ screenings using the latest in wireless headset technology. Set back from the waterfront, a volleyball net is available for PMYC members and guests to use on a first-come-first-served basis with either professional quality volleyballs or Frescobol Carioca handmade beach bats. The adjacent beach gym features nauticallyinspired training equipment designed by Biofit in sustainable oak and natural fibre rope. Bespoke wooden dip bars, gym benches, jump boxes and weight racks were commissioned from a local shipwright and kettlebells have been painted in the Yacht Club’s burgee colours.
Day memberships for the PMYC Beach including a sunbed and access to the outdoor gym, volleyball and main 64-metre pool are Eur 42/person or Eur 30 for PMYC Silver Members while a beach cabana for three people is Eur 250/day with a bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne.
