ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
Private Island with Limitless Potential
From Vision to Reality:
Possibilities are endless on the majestic island of Thatch Cay. Envision a single compound, individual luxury residential estates, or a thriving tourism and hospitality business. As a completely blank canvas, the island offers unlimited configurations with unmatched privacy and seclusion, yet easily accessible.
The neighboring island of St. Thomas enjoys an international airport with direct flights from Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York, and Miami.
Land, Sea & Sky
Enjoy a 30-minute scenic drive from the airport to the marina, followed by a 5-minute boat ride to the shores of Thatch Cay. A short and direct helicopter flight is another option to travel from St. Thomas or Puerto Rico directly to the island.
Given its proximity, residents of Thatch Cay enjoy the luxury amenities and world-class lifestyle for which St. Thomas is known.
Thatch Cay is in the heart of the U.S. Virgin Islands archipelago, east of Puerto Rico in the Lesser Antilles. This serene, untouched island lies just 0.5 miles+/- off the north-eastern coastline of St. Thomas and a short boat ride to St. John, Tortola, Virgin Gorda, and Necker Island.
The Last of Its Kind
One of the last privately owned islands in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Thatch Cay is comprised of 230 acres+/- of completely undeveloped land, a 5 mile+/- coastline, and panoramic ocean vistas in every direction. With significant subdivision capabilities, Thatch Cay is the ideal place to explore its nearly limitless potential for development.
Nestled off the north-eastern coast of St. Thomas; surrounded by the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea, Thatch Cay represents a unique opportunity for ownership in a true subtropical haven.
A Year-Round Destination
Revel in the best weather the U.S. Virgin Islands has to offer – all year long. A cooler period from December to March sees highs of 29°C (84°F), while the warmer period from May to October enjoys highs of around 31/32°C (88/90°F), softened by the cooling trade winds. The island’s consistently warm waters are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and boating at any time of year.
The island’s crystal clear waters and exquisite swimming beach invite you to experience deep-sea fishing, sailing, snorkeling, or scuba diving; a renowned dive site off the northwestern point features archways, tunnels, winding coral formations, and tropical fish of every color.
Groves of native Tyre Palms, the island’s namesake, as well as dry herbaceous plants, Cacti, Wild Orchids, and Bromeliads, dot the island from coast to coast. Wild goats roam freely, sea birds nest on rocky shores, and the first roseate terns of the annual migration are commonly observed on Thatch Cay. Lizards, geckos, whistling frogs, and Puerto Rican racers find their homes among the foliage.
At the eastern end of the island, Thatch Cay reaches its 500′ peak, offering unrivaled 360° views of the Atlantic Ocean to the north and St. Thomas to the south.
Currently zoned for residential development, the island allows for up to 6 dwellings across 3 parcels, including one main house and one guesthouse per parcel. The dwellings would be detached single-family or two-family dwellings of up to two stories with a minimum lot size of 0.5 acres+/-.
U.S. Virgin Island’s Best Kept Secret
With an array of new development possibilities, Thatch Cay is a rare slice of paradise primed for island living.
