Two beautiful venues with exquisite views!

The Amarante’s Sea Cliff facility boasts an illustrious 100-year history. Once a place for beach goers to enjoy seashore dinners and dance to the music of the roaring twenties, today it’s a one-of-a-kind a boutique facility, directly on the ocean and catering to a variety of events and celebrations.

Privacy is a key element in the design of the Sea Cliff facility. The two dining rooms with open decks are in separate buildings and each face the water. This ensures you a secure, private setting and a staff that is exclusively yours.
