Looking to escape the heat of London this summer and spend your days relaxing on the beach and feeling the breeze in your hair. We’ve rounded up our favourite beach bars on the Mediterranean, from Formentera to Egypt, where you can find good food, good music and all round good vibes.
1. Scorpios, Mykonos (Greece)
Scorpios is a special place, uniquely located on the south west side of Mykonos which means you have a phenomenal sunset view. Hosting some of the world’s best DJ’s as part of the “Rituals” series, you can dance well into the summer evening, with the party’s on Sunday known to be the best on the island.
2. Le Club 55, St Tropez (France)
A St Tropez classic and know to represent all the glamour of the Cote d’Azur, St Tropez has been known to a favourite of celebrities like Kate Moss and Bridgette Bardot. We think it's the perfect place to enjoy a long lunch and drink rose all day.
3. Buddha Bar, Bodrum (Turkey)
Bodrum is becoming hot with many saying it's the new Mykonos. Located on the stunning Aegean sea and accessible with direct flights from London, you’ll want to be the first of your friends to go. Buddha Bar is always a great “go to” if you’re looking for great summer vibes and the location in Bodrum is a chich spot to go from beach to bar.
4. Beso Beach, Formentera (Spain)
As they say in Spain, “no hay verano sin beso” and there’s a lot to be in love with at Beso. Formentera boast crystal blue waters and white sandy beaches which really make you wonder if you’re actually in the Caribbean. Beso is a beautiful beach bar where you can make the most of the water followed by lunch and a mojito.
5. KIKI’s Beach, North Coast (Egypt)
Only known to locals, North Coast is a relaxing gem set amidst a vibrant and chaotic country.
But if you do want to escalate your night, head to KIKI’s Beach which hosts huge parties and international DJ’s like Lee Burridge so you can dance the night away.
6. Hula Hula Bar, Hvar (Croatia)
Hvar island is not exactly a well kept secret if you want a fun escape from London. There are a number of fun clubs located on the island, but one of our favourites is Hula Hula Bar. It’s a great spot to enjoy a cocktail as the sun goes down.
And of course, if you get the chance to visit the gorgeous places this summer, don’t forget to pack your AWKN, so you can feel fresh the next day!
