Different parts of the world call for a different beach club vibes. Broker Alice guides you on the best beach clubs to visit this summer.

Spending time at beach clubs, restaurants and bars ashore is a key part of the yacht charter experience and we feel as though you need to be prepared for what to wear on every occasion of your yacht charter.

Scorpios – Mykonos

The cosmopolitan capital of the Cyclades, Mykonos, profits from having many chic restaurants and bars to visit. The favourite for this summer is Scorpios. Fine Greek wines, DJ’s, dancing, Greek food, and a boho vibe make Scorpios a very unique experience. This beach club profits from a Moroccon vibe and a panoramic sea view for you to enjoy whilst dancing the day away at this beach club.

Anjuna Plage- Eze – South of France

Nestled in a protected bay amongst the sparkling Mediterranean sea, Anjuna beach awaits to provide one of the best beach clubs on the globe. The restaurant is relaxed with cool tones of Caribbean blue throughout. At 4 PM the restaurant turns quickly into a party place with people dancing on tables, live bands performing and Provencal Rosé being served in abundance throughout the premises! This beach club is perfect for a summers day with both family and friends.

Croatia- Hvar – Hula Bar

For chasing sunsets and mojitos there is no better bar than the Hula bar. During the day there is a beach lounge and atmosphere then as soon as sunset hits this bar transforms into the perfect sunset spot. Giant cocktails, DJ’s and dancing take place in this hub every night during the summer months in Hvar. Take a water taxi from your boat to arrive in style at the Hula Bar.

Le Club 55- St Tropez

With a worldwide reputation for its crystal clear rose wine, traditional blue and white stripes and A-listers throughout, Club 55 retains a sense of tradition and superiority that nowhere else will ever attain. With French cuisine, a lively environment and many superyachts this place really has been the chicest place in St Tropez since 1955.

Staniel Cay Yacht Club- The Bahamas

Moor up with friendly nurse sharks and head for lunch at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club. The vibe here is Bahamian and relaxed. The Mahi Mahi served here will not disappoint! Stop off here before going to visit the friendly swimming pigs at a nearby beach!

What to wear this summer

Head to Pranella or Amenapih for the perfect beach wardrobe. Expect to find shells on bikinis, detailed swimming costumes, and long floral dresses to ensure that you have the right look for any beach club! Amenapih is found along every back street of St Tropez and if you look closely this summer you will see shells lining every outfit across the globe.

The 1600s marks the birth of the new multihull ideology which would later become one of the most recognized yacht models across the sailing community. It was first believed to have been two logs bound together and later developed into two cannons being held together to give that famous multi-style. Catamarans have moved on from this once prehistoric engineering into some of the most celebrated yachts in the world. This was not without skepticism, the first recorded Catamaran designed by William Petty was not a commercial success. The multihull design was virtually unused for around 160 years following its initial introduction.

Come the mid-1900’s century catamarans started to come into a league of their own. The cat designs traveled worldwide, with England and the Americas jumping on the bandwagon to start producing the multihull sailing yachts. Famed for stability, these yachts started to beat Monohulls in regattas all over the world. Nowadays catamarans exude luxury and racing excellence.

They’ve become so popular in the sailing-holiday-cruising-style due to their space, catamarans are not only novice sailors favorites but are fast becoming the Luxury crewed alternatives to monohulls. This versatile yacht can be utilized in many different ways, not only been built for cruising but have also developed into hydrofoiling racing cats and power cats .

We have Bali catamarans based in some of the most elite sailing destinations in the world. If you are after luxury, space, and easy sailing then this yacht is for you! Space is hard to find on monohull yachts that are under 40ft, but even with 32 ft cat space will never become an issue. Built for speed and cruising, these yachts are perfect for exploring shallow waters around the Caribbean, or island hopping in the Greek or Croatian islands.

With large Balis accommodating up to 12 guests, these yachts provide ample space for a stunning charter with family and friends. Bali has furnished their yachts to a high specification creating a dynamic, comfortable sail. Bali catamarans are pioneers in the way that they develop their yachts. They are always searching for rules to break, and putting sailors comfort and ease of sailing at the forefront of everything they create.
