Beach holidays The new generation of beach clubs in Spain
Close your eyes. Imagine you’re lying on a comfortable Bali bed beside the Mediterranean or the Atlantic... the sea breeze blows softly around you and relaxing music plays in the background, in time with your breath and the beat of your heart. On the table next to you sits a delicious daiquiri, prepared with the best ingredients and mixed to taste, just waiting for you to take a refreshing sip to accompany the sunset you’re gazing at through your shades. Can you imagine a more PERFECT seaside scene? Welcome to paradise on the beach. Welcome to the perfect beach club.
But first things first: what is a beach club? It’s not just a beach bar—it's something much better. They do have a few things in common, like their proximity to the sea; but that’s where the similarities stop, as proven by the SeaSoul beach clubs. These locales, like the one in Costa Adeje, blend unbeatable locations with the best service and snacks from luxury restaurants and hotels. Their menus stand out for the quality of the food and drinks, the local products offered and the mix of avant-garde style with tradition. Its coastline is perfect for a truly majestic getaway, and to make it happen there is nothing better than our six hotels in Costa Adeje.
FIRST STOP: IBIZA
On a trip through the best foodie beach spots in Spain, the first stop is always Ibiza. This island is simultaneously a test lab and a showcase for the latest trends. It always knows the difference between what’s in and what’s out—between cutting-edge luxury and passing fads. And the verdict is clear: BEACH CLUBS ARE IN. Why? Because they bring the hippie spirit of the 70s up to date, while serving the finest champagnes and summery wines alongside dishes that belong in both the Balearic Islands and the world’s most prestigious kitchens.
Get ready to visit Ibiza - an island that has it all, enjoying its magic with our help at one of the best adults-only 4 star hotels in Ibiza.
SECOND STOP: CÁDIZ
The next stop, of course, is the coast of Cádiz. Its sandy shores pioneered the practice of continuing the party on the beach, where the sun doesn’t dictate time or routine and afternoons stretch out into evenings. The epicenter of its most sophisticated section is La Barrosa in Sancti Petri, a beach that shines for two reasons. First, for remaining unspoiled, with dunes serving as a natural border. Second, for bringing the luxury of its hotels to beach lounges where fascinating cuisine and lively summer evenings are never in short supply.
If you are looking for even more exclusive accommodation in Cadiz, the Iberostar Selection Andalucía Playa is at your service. Stay at this 5 star hotel with direct access to the beach, a restaurant serving gourmet food and typical Andalusian dishes, a spa (for an additional fee) and a golf course which together will turn your holidays in Spain into a dream.
THIRD STOP: COSTA DEL SOL
On the Costa del Sol, and particularly in Marbella, beach clubs show that the sea isn’t always the only option for getting your feet wet. The most exquisite clubs feature exclusive pools that put you even closer to the water and create a relaxing ambience. Here you can experience the new Marbella-style luxury, blending, as few can, design, comfort and international cuisine. To toast the perfect day, choose from a selection of cocktails and sparkling wines that will cool you off after an afternoon of tanning and satisfy even the most refined tastes. Considering all these features, choosing our hotel in Marbella for your Andalusian holiday will be a decision you won’t regret.
Málaga, of course, is the capital of cuisine. What does the Costa del Sol taste like? Like shish kebab, fried foods, fresh pescaíto... these flavors are essential to any self-respecting beachside restaurant, where tradition and comfort come together in a unique location. Along these lines, sophistication blends with the region’s roots, nourished by a comprehensive wine list served at colorful barrel tables. You couldn’t ask for more.
FOURTH STOP: MALLORCA
The island of Mallorca is experiencing a sophisticated transformation of its leisure and culinary spaces, positioning it as a deluxe destination that’s hard to beat. On this new scene, beach clubs have come into their own, thanks in large part to the exclusivity they guarantee. They include all the irresistible elements of the beach (sun, heat, sea breeze...) but offer much more tranquility, sophistication and comfort. Bali beds and hammocks are their essential furniture, as demonstrated by SeaSoul Playa de Palma, a space with a pool, hot tub and restaurant to please each and every one of the senses. Discover all the hotels in Mallorca that Iberostar puts at your disposal for a holiday of luxury and relaxation.
Another aspect of these spaces’ success in Mallorca is their connection to their surroundings. Who among us can’t imagine enjoying a good lunch or dinner in a cove surrounded by pine trees and the Mediterranean atmosphere? Here, premium beach bars face the challenge of providing a kind of capsule where patrons can soak in the shade, aromas and moments of peace.
If cuisine in Mallorca is a constant balance between the local essence—upheld by centuries of carefully maintained tradition—and the best international influences, its beach clubs are nothing less. That’s why some, like SeaSoul Puerto de Alcudia, can be defined as a collection of Mallorcan delicacies: pa amb oli and llonguets with sausages, sobrassada or Mahón cheese, and the best tapas combined with popular foreign recipes. The food is the perfect pairing for their daytime and evening DJ sessions on weekends.
FIFTH STOP: HUELVA
As is the case in Cádiz, the beaches of Huelva are maintained in all their natural splendor. The beach clubs here can fit into any part of your day. That is to say, they’re the perfect spots for aperitifs before dinner, as well as the best places to enjoy music and cocktails when the sun goes down. Some even turn into dance floors on Sundays, as is the case at SeaSoul Isla Canela, where each week ends with a lively DJ session.
And, being one of the top family resorts in Spain, IberostarIsla Canela Hotel is also great for our younger guests as well.
