The 7 Beach Clubs In Santorini Worth Visiting (2023)

Whilst Santorini is definitely known for its high soaring cliffs that overlook the caldera, there is another side to the island that is equally as popular. The beaches of Perissa & Perivolos are popular with visitors looking for a beach club in Santorini, as well as those looking for a day away from the bustling crowds of Oia and Fira. 

Whilst the range of beach clubs in Santorini may not be as extensive as those found in Ibiza or St Tropez, you’ll certainly find world-famous beach club names such as Nikki Beach Santorini on the island. 

The beaches in Santorini are peculiar in the sense that you’ll find an array of colors throughout Santorini’s beaches. From the black sand beaches of Perissa to the red sand beach near Akrotiri, these are the remains of the volcano which once made up this island. 

A day spent in one of the beach clubs in Santorini is a fantastic way to spend an afternoon enjoying views across the Aegean Sea, sipping on a well-crafted cocktail, and soaking up the superb Greek cuisine. 

It’s also the perfect time to plan your Santorini Sunset Catamaran Cruise for later on in the week. Which is something you can’t leave Santorini without doing.

3. Yalos

Barebones and rustic, Yalos is a mixture of chic carpenter combined with a deserted island feel. It surprisingly works. The tagline on their Instagram page states that Yalos ‘engages all the senses’ and it’s hard to deny that when experiencing this otherworldly beach club in Santorini. 

Some of the beach clubs in Santorini can verge on pretentious, but Yalos is that curious mix of charm and aloofness that draws a certain clientele. Its location on Exo Gialos beach is a short drive from Fira and part of the beach club has been carved into the rocks. 

The big draw for Yalos is the superb, and really it is superb cuisine that is quite unusual for a beach club. The produce is locally sourced and the menu has been created with foodies in mind. You won’t find any frozen food here. 

The former fisherman shack setting is spectacularly designed, with beach beds spread out across the sand, and dining on the sand crossed-legged is highly recommended. 

Savor the ambiance and soak up the bohemian vibes.

Spend a day at Wet Stories nibbling on a fantastic Japanese-inspired menu, whilst ordering a variety of their signature cocktails.
