On the charming island of Hydra, at Kamini beach, Castello Beach Bar & Restaurant is a stunning beach bar and restaurant definitely worth a visit. It’s housed in an 18th century tower overlooking the beach. This multi-level establishment includes sun loungers and umbrellas on the beach, as well as an outdoor lounging area with a café bar serving coffee, drinks and snacks all day while the restaurant, on a beautiful terrace, serves Mediterranean cuisine. After dark, the DJ sets fill the air and it’s your chance to bust your best moves under the starry sky.

If you happen to be in Athens before heading to the islands, escape to the beach. Our go-to is the Holy Spirit’s outpost in Yabanaki Varkiza Resort. Chill on one of their large floor pillows or on a comfy sunbed while sipping a refreshing cocktail. If you find yourself in Athens any other time of year, you’ll be happy to know you can still enjoy the exquisite concoctions at the home base in the southern suburb in Glyfada.

Enjoy some beach fun at Saoki Beach Bar, located on the beautiful island of Samothraki.

On the island of endless nightlife, high-end boutiques and fancy beach bars, Scorpios proudly stands out. A hybrid space—part restaurant, part beach bar, part boutique, part open-air music venue—this special place is a favorite among the crowds that flock en masse to Mykonos. With sturdy sunbeds, bohemian pillows and boho-chic ambiance, this place will remind you more of a cool beach party with friends than a regular beach bar. At night, the bar takes a more festive vibe, with DJ sets and music performances.

If you think you cannot enjoy your favorite watersport in Greece, think again. Tinos Surf Lessons, located in Kolimbithra, is a surf school and a beach bar. Here, you can enjoy some serious waves, thanks to the strong meltemi winds, before taking a well-deserved break under the shade of a woven umbrella. Even if you are not into surfing, this little relaxed joint is certainly worth a visit. Besides, the bar has an excellent summer program, with plenty of live music events and DJ sets.

Enjoying a scenic location between beach and rock by Kathisma beach, Copla (or driftwood) is not your average beach bar. Built to be in complete harmony with its surroundings, the bar features a wood structure that fits seamlessly into its environment, and the endeavor was rewarded with a prize for the integration to the natural environment at the 4th Biennale of Young Architects. Either lie down by the sea in the sand or sit by the pool on the wooden deck with a delicious cocktail in hand. Whether you spend your day at the beach or pop by after dusk, you are sure to have a good time.
