The Eight Best Beach Clubs in the World
Sunbathing, long-lunching, sunset-admiring, barefoot dancing – the beach club can be the perfect all-day location. Here are our favourites
Nothing feels quite so ‘holiday’ as a beach club. There’s something so decadent – and, let’s face it, so easy – about losing the whole day to the same enticing place, where a yoga session turns into brunch turns into an afternoon on a sun lounger – and a steady flow of cocktails. Before you know it, that don’t-miss sunset has arrived and the mood changes as DJs get started and you’re dancing on the sand.
In honour of such blissful days, we’ve rounded up our very favourite beach clubs and bars. From rustic shacks on stilts in Jamaica to cultured coveside corners in Ibiza, these are the coolest spots to see you from day to night.
Yazz, Collective, Fethiye, Turkiye
Yazz Collective, tucked into a remote cove on south-western Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, is only accessible by boat which adds to its exclusivity. A hotel, restaurant, bar and gallery, Yazz has a strong cultural backbone with artworks and installations on loan from the architect’s Istanbul gallery. There’s also an art club for you to channel your inner Picasso in case the beautiful surrounds inspire a creative burst.
At the weekends, expect sunset parties and DJ sets where guests can kick back while looking out over the sea, mountains and cliffs. The restaurant is positioned on the water’s edge, and features a daily menu using local and natural ingredients.
Stay the night …right where you are! There are 17 suites set throughout the peaceful gardens – you’ll notice their drooping thatch roofs looking like unruly fringes. Artistic additions inside include hanging hammered-copper lamps, round wicker mirrors and carved wooden ornaments.
