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.
Potato Head Seminyak, Bali
Seminyak‘s Potato Head is more than a beach club – it bills itself as a ‘creative village’ that includes an impeccably designed hotel, music, art and cultural programmes, multiple restaurants and a co-working space. Since its opening in 2010, its beloved beach club has almost doubled in size with a more extensive offering than ever before. Start your day with a sunrise meditation session on the roof, followed by a languid day swimming, eating and sipping on a smoothie or a cocktail.
The food is largely plant-based to ease any guilt you might have as the small plates keep coming. Choose between the infinity pool flanked by palm trees, or the sandy beach below – there are no dud spots here. As the evening arrives, a host of international DJs get the party started in earnest.
Stay the night
You wont have to go far to find the imposing red-brick Potato Head Suites which rises majestically from the shoreside jungles just round the corner from its namesake club. Mid-century furniture fans will delight at the rooms, styled as they are with Louis Poulsen pendant lamps, Le Corbusier and Arne Jacobsen chairs, and more.
