New Clearwater Beach restaurant to open next month

A new beach restaurant is to open in the East End next month after two years of delays.

Details have yet to be revealed, but JAS, the hospitality company that will run the Clearwater Beach attraction in St David’s, said it was optimistic that it would be ready in time for the peak tourism season.

A spokesman for JAS said: “We are excited to be readying the pavilion facility at Clearwater Beach for the upcoming spring and summer season.

“We have been buoyed by the recent changes in travel entry requirements and SafeKey group sizes, and we are hopeful these changes serve as a catalyst to assist our economy with an increase in local trade and tourist activity.”

The spokesman explained development of the site had been dogged with difficulties because of the impact of Covid-19, which hit just after JAS was awarded the concession by the Bermuda Land Development Company in January 2020.

But he said: “We will be announcing more details in the coming weeks as we continue towards our projected opening for April.”

The site was operated as Gombeys Bar & Restaurant until it closed in December 2019.

The Government has yet to provide an update on another beach concession.

Plans for the refurbishment of the beachside café on Horseshoe Bay were unveiled in November 2020 by Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch, the public works minister.

But a planning application put forward by the new developer – Horseshoe Bay Live – was rejected in December 2021.

The Royal Gazette first asked a government spokesman for an update on the Horseshoe Bay development last week. No response was received by press time.
