Nothing says superyacht living like a day at a glamorous beach club, as you dive off a pontoon into the blue-green sea, fine-dine on waterfront terraces, and drink champagne on a canopied daybed. And Croatia has a splendid selection of beach clubs to drop anchor at, from the dreamy Dalmatian islands right up to the party destination of Pag.
Whether you’re looking for an exclusive Art Deco bathing club or an open-air party venue with big name DJ’s, Croatia has the beach club for you!
Here’s a list of the best beach clubs in Croatia to arrive at in style on your Croatia superyacht charter:
Banje Beach Club
The UNESCO-listed city of Dubrovnik is the perfect place to start your Croatia yacht charter, but it might not be the first place you think of when planning a day at an Adriatic beach club. Banje Beach Club could change all that.
This swanky restaurant and beach club is located on the beach just outside Dubrovnik’s eastern gate, with fantastic views back across the Old Town and across to Lokrum Island. Spend a day here sipping vintage champagne from a deckchair, dining in the upscale restaurant, or getting a hot stone massage in a seaside cabana.
At night, Banje Beach becomes one of Dubrovnik’s hottest clubs, with parties on the beach by the moonlit sea. A fantastic place to begin your Croatia yacht charter.
Moro Beach Club Stupe
It’s always exciting when a new upscale beach club opens, and Moro Beach Club Stupe kicked off with a bang when it opened for summer 2017,with visions of their romantic sea swings and spectacular setting taking social media by storm.
Located on the tiny, forested island of Vela Stupe just off Korcula, Moro Beach Club is set on a peninsula dotted with giant boulders and surrounded by dazzling blue-green waters straight out of a Conde Nast photo shoot. With a rugged backdrop of sun-bleached mountains and a beachy blue and white décor, it’s no wonder this beach club has instantly become the hot new stop on any Croatia yacht charter itinerary.
There’s a wonderful sense of fun to the place too, with the giant sea swings and butterfly lilos to float about on in the crystal clear sea. DJ’s or live bands play each afternoon to a happy, relaxed crowd, and the restaurant menu is winning fans for seafood dishes like their outstanding cuttlefish risotto.
You’ll definitely want to drop anchor and swim or tender ashore for a day in paradise at Moro Beach Club Stupe.
Bonj les Bains
If you’re looking for a bit of Jazz Age glamour in an all-white beach club surrounded by pine trees and turquoise sea, then Bonj les Bains is the place for you. This sophisticated 1920’s bathing club isn’t set on the beach as such, but rather has its restaurant terrace and bathing platforms built over the sparkling sea.
Take a table among the white stone columns in the restaurant, or adjourn to a canopied daybed out on a pontoon, enjoying the dreamy sea views as the gauzy white curtains flutter in the afternoon breeze and the yachts go sailing by. There’s even spa cabanas for massages by the water, making this art deco haven even more blissful.
Hula Hula Bar
With stone terraces falling away into the clear sea, floating platforms to dive off, and an open-air massage pavilion it’s a great place to spend a summer’s day on a sunbed— but if you’re looking for an exclusive vibe of peace and quiet you’re going to be disappointed, as DJ’s absolutely rock this place on summer days right through the sunset hours.
As the day wears on, Hula Hula Bar becomes one giant dance floor. When you get hot amongst the dancing, happy crowd, you just jump into the cool blue Adriatic. So order a cocktail (or three), kick your shoes off, and join in the mayhem!
Carpe Diem Beach
Hvar’s most famous beach club and nightspot isn’t actually located on Hvar, but rather on Stipanska Beach in the idyllic Paklemi Islands just offshore. This just adds to the exclusivity of this A-list hangout, as you’ll need a boat to get there.
The superyacht set flock to Carpe Diem Beach in the summer months to take a lounger on one of the rocky waterfront terraces, drink cocktails by the pool, or bliss out with a long lunch under the pines. Beach volleyball, soccer and watersports keep the active guests happy, while the relaxed lounge beats of the DJ provide the soundtrack to living the luxury beach life in Croatia.
As sunset falls across the Adriatic, the energy level rises as Carpe Diem Beach transforms into one of the hottest clubs of the Mediterranean, with legendary full moon parties featuring superstar DJs and a beautiful, champagne-spraying crowd dancing until the dawn.
Relax by day, party by night at Carpe Diem Beach, Croatia’s ground zero for glamour.
Radisson Blu Mistral Beach Bar
Radisson Blu Resort & Spa in Split has built a circular sea deck out into the Adriatic, where canopied day beds and loungers surround a tiki cocktail bar. With a fresh blue and white colour theme complementing the endless views of sea and sky, the Mistral Beach Bar is the perfect place to relax and gaze out at the Dalmatian islands you just floated through.
The hotel also offers a poolside bar and lounge, multiple waterfront dining options, and Split’s biggest spa.
Noa Beach Club
If you’re a party kind of person on a North Croatia yacht charter, then the island of Pag will definitely be on your radar. This island has become one of Europe’s wildest party destinations, and its surreal, fiercely arid landscape contrasts vividly with the turquoise and sapphire sea.
The beach clubs of Pag are more open-air party venues than sophisticated beach clubs and there’s a strip of them along Zrce Beach, Pag’s party capital. The most spectacular is Noa Beach Club, voted one of the world’s top 100 clubs. Noa is a village built over the sea, with bridges connecting the different platforms of swimming pools, bars, and DJs, all centred around a massive stage for big name acts.
The village also has its own beach with sunbeds and tiki umbrellas VIP areas if you’re more interested in relaxing and sunbathing over dancing. Either way, the cooling Adriatic is just a few steps away.
A long-time giant of the Pag party scene, Aquarius has really sharpened up its act in 2017 with the addition of VIP cabanas with their own private, glass-sided plunge pools.
Relax by the main pool or in the restaurant by day, before the whole place is transformed into a heaving dance floor over two floors, with international DJ’s and festivals lighting up the summer nights.
