Best Beach Clubs

UPDATED MAY 2017

If you’re hoping for some beach bar action on your holidays this summer, we’ve rounded up the best to visit across the globe. Whether you’re partying in Ibiza, keeping it chic on the French Riviera or exploring Croatia, here’s SL’s pick of the top beach clubs to try for some serious poolside action.

Ibiza

Amante, Sol Den Serra

Set on a cliff overlooking the Sol Den Serra bay, Amante is worth a visit for the surroundings alone. Unwind at a table flanked by dramatic rocks and lush greenery and watch the sun go down.

Beach House, Playa d’en Bossa

Bask, bathe and unwind at Beachouse, an elegant spot on the Ibiza coastline, which offers attentive waiter service direct to your daybed or sofa. The dappled waters of the Mediterranean provide the perfect backdrop for a long, lazy day of lounging and relaxation, and if you get peckish their kitchen serves authentic Italian cuisine.

Blue Marlin, Cala Jondal

Set on the beautiful pebbly beach of Cala Jondal, Blue Marlin’s outdoor areas are the place to live it up VIP-style. Hosting some of the best beach parties of the summer season, head there on the weekend to party and in the week for a more chilled vibe.

Cotton Beach Club, Cala Tarida

This luxurious club on the White Isle is making Ibiza’s southwest coast the destination du jour for islanders and jetsetters. With an all-white colour palette, chic furnishings and stylish daybeds, the club has its own private sandy beach and boasts stunning views across the Med. There are changing cabins and private showers on hand so you can move comfortably from lounging to dining, before tucking into delectable sushi and fresh seafood salads.

Experimental Beach Ibiza, Cap des Falcó

With a more laid-back vibe than many of its rivals, you won’t be surrounded by the super-yacht crowd at Experimental Beach. Located on Ibiza’s south coast, get stuck in to the impressive cocktail list (try The Cocolito, a delicious blend of vodka, lime and passion fruit with pineapple and mango granita) as you recline on one of the signature pale blue sunbeds, before feasting on traditional tapas and enjoying a spot of shopping at the boho-luxe, on-site boutique.

Nassau, Playa d’en Bossa​

This beach club in Playa d’en Bossa has the kind of laid-back atmosphere you can’t help but revel in. The setting combines Ibiza charm with the modern beach chic of somewhere like Miami and it’s the perfect place for a late lunch (crab salad and seafood linguine are on the menu) and copious amounts of rosé.

The Jockey Club,  Playa Salinas

If sunbathing is what you want, then make a bee-line for The Jockey Club, where they have a huge number of beach beds and parasols for hire. They don't take bookings though, so make sure you get there early.

Croatia

Bonj Les Bains, Hvar

This architectural jewel from 1927 exudes retro-Mediterranean style and has been dubbed one of the hottest beach clubs in Europe. It’s easy to see why – its white-stone colonnade offers private sea pontoons where you can relax, sunbathe and enjoy a cold cocktail or two.

Mulini Beach Bar, Rovinj

Never been to the medieval town of Rovinj? The Mulini bar is just the excuse you need. Its modernist, white promenade is set right on a yacht-filled harbour and even has its own lido for quick dips. During the day waiters serve mango caipirinhas and bar food, think octopus with minty couscous and capers – and when night falls, DJs get in on the action, playing electronica that perfectly suits the old-meets-new surroundings.
