With the temperatures finally beginning to rise, beach clubs all over are starting to dust off their cabanas, layout the sun loungers and lock in the very best DJs for what is set to be another epic summer!
To celebrate the arrival of beach club season we have decided to take a look at some of the hottest spots from around the world where you can well and truly get your summer vibe on.
Scorpios, Mykonos, Greece
Described as the boho-chic version of the revered Nammos, Scorpios has quickly cemented itself as the place to see and be seen when in Mykonos. Put simply, Scorpios offers the ideal combination: beach fun in the sun, laidback lounging, thrilling cocktails, starlit dancing and unbelievable food and the finest of wines.
What was once a weathered house has been transformed into a modern-day luxurious beach lounge that overlooks the azure of the Aegean Sea. Positioned between two bays (Kavos and Paraga) and a short drive from Mykonos, Scorpios offers 2 daybed-dotted beaches, plenty of other shaded lounge areas, an airy stone clubhouse and a restaurant.
The aesthetic of the place is a mix of rural charm and Moroccan touches – think driftwood daybeds, wicker lampshades, thatched roofs and weathered stonewalls.
Days at Scorpios are spent lounging on daybeds shaded by thatched roofs, but nights are a more lavish affair with DJs and dancing into the early hours.
Omnia Dayclub, Uluwatu, Bali
OMNIA Bali is perched atop the mesmerising limestone cliffs of Uluwatu, on Bali’s southern peninsula. The endless views of the Indian Ocean are what make Uluwatu a truly exotic and memorable destination; the dayclub and restaurant, Sake no Hana, have been meticulously designed to maximise this jaw-dropping panorama from 80-metres above the sea.
Spread out below the restaurant a brave new world of daylife entertainment awaits you: glittering infinity pool curves meet stupendous ocean views, exclusive bungalows with private pools and VIP Cabanas nestled behind the DJ Booth offer next-level luxury, whilst the swim-up bar and generously oversized Pool Beds let you soak it all in.
And, with the internationally-acclaimed Hakkasan Group behind it, you can also expect good vibrations from superstar DJs from all over the world.
Fenix, Cartagena, Columbia
A welcome and much-needed addition to the beach scene in Cartagena, Fenix is a serious game-changer for the Colombian city's beach-club scene.
Set on a flamboyant stretch of sand that enveloped by natural jungle and inspired by Burning Man's desert Playa, Fenix is an eco-conscious, low-impact beach lounge with daybeds crafted from fallen mangroves set around five bamboo-sculptured domes hand-woven by artisans.
Days at Fenix start with a typically Caribbean slowness, powerboats waiting to whisk late-risers across Cartagena's sparkling bay to Margaritas and family-style feasts of whole, Creole-crisped sea bass, grilled plantains and coconut rice.
There are hammocks hung between palms, for the ones seeking the ultimate chill-out. But do not be fooled, Fenix is a place to party!
Cove Beach, Dubai, UAE
Cove Beach offers sun lovers the opportunity to relax in a highly luxe atmosphere, whilst enjoying a fruit-flavoured shisha or something to eat from the gourmet restaurant menu. With stunning views of the Burj Al Arab, this wonderfully classy and chilled out beach club does not need much help drawing in the crowds.
Considered as a brilliant, low-key alternative to some of the rowdier Dubai beach clubs, Cove Beach offers a stretch of idyllic golden sand, where you can chill out on an oversized day bed and let the attentive waiters serve your every need.
El Chiringuito, Es Cavellet, Ibiza
In terms of beach clubs, El Chiringuito ticks all the right boxes, it is a venue where attention to detail is king. With a perfect location on Es Cavallet beach, a quintessential beach club aesthetic of natural wood and white fabrics, as well as a great menu and fantastic service, El Chiringuito is a place where you will absorb good vibes all day long.
The bar list is thorough and impressive and the food is superb, from breakfast to lunch, dinner or snacks, whether you’re eating in the restaurant or on the beach. For breakfast why not try the eggs benedict, organic granola or the popular lux pancakes with maple syrup and fresh fruit. At 1 pm, lunch begins, serving modern Mediterranean dishes with French and Ibicenco touches like homemade beechwood smoked salmon, sea bass roasted in sea salt or the famous Chiringuito beef burger.
The large comfy beds on the beach directly in front of the club offer the perfect post-lunch resting spot, where you can soak up the sun and a cocktail or two whilst enjoying the in-house DJs play some of the very best summer beats.
Yacht Club Pool at Porto Montenegro, Marina in Tivat, Montenegro
Challenging the standards of the most prestigious yacht clubs in the world, The Porto Montenegro Yacht Club effortlessly combines tradition with contemporary luxury. The recently re-furbished 64m infinity pool is open to both PMYC members and guests throughout the summer months and offers the ultimate European beach club experience.
Daybeds for up to 188 people, private shower cubicles and changing rooms as well as a 20-seater lounge area, perfect for groups and parties. At the foot of the magical pool is the summer restaurant that offers a menu full of poolside classics with an Italian flair, as well as expertly mixed cocktails and they very best international wines.
