The hottest beach clubs of the Mediterranean Superyacht Society
From traditional cult venues on the Côte d’Azur to the hottest lifestyle bars on Ibiza’s playas, the Mediterranean offers superyacht charter vacationers some of the best beach clubs in the world. Beach clubs transform any beach getaway into an exclusive VIP experience and are the perfect retreat for yacht charterers. Since most venues have their own jetty, it is effortless to moor there by dinghy, both completely discreetly or to attract the attention of guests ashore.
The afternoon can be spent sunbathing and sipping cocktails before the party begins and continues into the wee hours of the morning. On your next yacht charter vacation in the Mediterranean, be sure to plan a stopover at one of these beach clubs.
1. Nammos, Mykonos - Greece
Since its inception in 2003, Nammos in Greece has redefined opulent beach living. Nestled on the soft, golden sands of Psarou Beach, this trendy Mykonos establishment is a firm favorite among locals and the maritime jet set.
Luxurious lounge chairs invite you to relax in the brilliant Greek sunshine, and an extensive champagne menu provides refreshment. A shaded shisha lounge is the ultimate chill-out zone, while the bar fills with party people as night falls.
Decked out in white wood, bamboo, and palm trees, the open-air Nammos restaurant is worth a trip ashore just for its tantalizing seafood dishes and sumptuous Wagyu and Kobe beef, grilled to perfection at the beef bar.
2. Carpe Diem Beach, Hvar - Croatia
Carpe Diem Beach is located in a rocky cove on the island of Marinkovacoff, fringed by lush pine trees and accessible only by boat. This exclusive spot is just ten minutes from Hvar Town and has been attracting the Croatian lifestyle scene for almost three decades.
During the day, you can tan on huge cushions, swim in the pool, eat seared tuna, and sip mojitos in the lounge bar. There’s even a volleyball court and a massage pavilion offering treatments like seaweed wraps and lemon lavender scrubs.
When night falls, Carpe Diem Beach transforms into the ultimate party spot, perfect for those looking to experience long summer nights. The full moon parties are legendary, with big-name DJs flown in from the best clubs in Europe.
3. Beach Club 10.7, Formentera - Balearic Islands
Beach Club 10.7 seems a world away from the glitzy beach clubs on Formentera’s north coast, perched above a nearly deserted stretch of Playa Migjorn in the south of Spain’s Balearic island. The elegant, understated design of whitewashed wood, regency chairs, and rattan lets the view do the talking.
Secure a spot on the rooftop terrace and relax with one of the signature cocktails made with vodka and watermelon. Casual beats accompany the sun as it sets behind Cap de Barberia, and the music gets louder as partygoers come out to play.
Beach Club 10.7’s menu is a foodie’s paradise, offering a mix of traditional Mediterranean cuisine and Asian influences. Choose from dishes like Catalan lobster, homemade ravioli and classic spaghetti pesto, or share a platter of succulent sushi.
4. Le Club 55, St Tropez - France
The original and most famous beach club in St. Tropez, Le Club 55 was created when Brigitte Bardot came to the then-deserted Pampelonne beach in 1955 to film the movie “And God Created Women,” which would make the actress a worldwide superstar.
Bernard and Geneviève De Colmont provided family meals for the crew in their fishing shack, and it soon transformed into the Cinquante Cinque, a meeting place for rock stars, models and government officials alike.
Today, a terra-cotta terrace shaded by tamarisk trees, woven reeds and white screens provides a relaxed atmosphere where A-listers and locals alike can continue to eat grilled fish and sip rosé without interruption.
The open-air French restaurant even has its own jetty, allowing those arriving by superyacht dinghy to make an impressive entrance.
5. Phi Beach, Sardinia - Italy
Overlooking the 18th-century Forte Cappellini, Phi Beach enjoys a truly magical setting, made even more enchanting by the sunsets over the La Maddalena archipelago opposite. Since the club appeared on the Costa Smeralda in 2005, it has become the hottest beach club in Sardinia.
On the golden sand beach, day beds with white canopies invite guests to relax while sipping signature Havana cocktails and enjoying the delicious Mediterranean menu at the waterfront Chiri Sur restaurant.
There is also a spectacular VIP terrace hidden among the granite rocks. The Rock Club is a place where the elite toast with champagne and dine in an intimate atmosphere. Afterwards, international DJs and beautiful light shows keep everyone entertained until the wee hours of the morning.
6. Maçakizi,-Bodrum - Turkey
A combination of regal hotel and classic beach club, Maçakizi is tucked away in the enclosed bay of Türkbükü, Bodrum, one of Turkey’s most exclusive locations. Amid pink bougainvilleas, wooden decks snake down the slope to the sea, hosting A-listers and superyachties for nearly 40 years.
Settle on a sun lounger just inches from the turquoise Aegean and cool off with an ice-cold mojito. If you’re hungry, try the sea-fresh sea bass or roasted rack of lamb at the first-class restaurant. In the evening, the atmosphere gets even better with DJs spinning.
