The ultimate Greek guide: beach bars edition

July has arrived and it’s time to present perhaps the most vital summer Greek guide – the Beach Bar Edition. You may be packing as we speak to go and visit one of the beautiful Greek islands, so scroll below and have a first-hand peek at the beach bars you shouldn’t miss. So throw in an extra bathing suit in your luggage, because you may end up staying longer! Theros Wave Beach, Santorini Tucked away in an extraordinary landscape, this Santorinian beach bar welcomes all guests and selflessly demonstrates how people should spend their time at the beach. Theros Wave with the help of the natural setting of Eros Beach has been voted to be one of the best beach bars in the Mediterranean! It is hard to beat its classiness and hospitality with its touch of romance and exoticness making it an ideal location for planning the most memorable events. Scorpios, Mykonos Mykonos has the best beach bars in Greece and shall we dare to say Europe! The competition is big, however Scorpios basically stands alone in a separate category in which no other beach bar can be compared with it. The bohemian-chic style is not only visible from the decorations and colors, but the same essence is also conveyed through the DJ’s, the baristas and the guests. Set foot in Scorpios and just go with the flow…you won’t regret it! Oasis Beach Bar, Rhodes Perhaps the most impressive yet chilled beach bar on the island of the Knights. Situated in Kallithea, an odd and peculiar setting as the beach bar is literally built in a cave and that’s exactly the element that makes it so interesting and the reason it is well worth a visit. Live gigs are being scheduled all the time throughout the summer months that just add more to the coolness of the entire atmosphere. Buca Lounge Bar, Zakynthos After a rejuvenating swim at Alykes beach, sip on a delicious fresh juice while enjoying the view of the sandy beach. The combination of the indoors and outdoors of the Buca Lounge Bar is restful on the eye as the minimalistic and clean-cut design of the bar along with the crystal clear colors of the sea simply makes your stay there calmer and breezier. Castello Beach Bar & Restaurant, Hydra An elegant 18thcentury tower that has been transformed into a beach bar, café, restaurant and of course a place where you can show-off your best moves with the help of the DJ as soon as the sun goes down.  Castello is an all-in one establishment known for its exquisite Mediterranean dishes, a quaint outdoor lounging area and comfy sunbeds to soak up the sun.

  1. All of these beach bars look stunning. I am so drawn to Castello it is so beautiful. I love a holiday where you can relax in a bar right on the beach. I am yet to visit Greece but with so many beautiful beaches and eateries it really does look like a trip I need to make. Mykonos sounds like a great place to start exploring this stunning country.

  2. Just browsing through ALTB, one of my favourite winter activities in Britain. I’m on the look out for inspiration for next summer. It’s dark, cold and wet here. I need some comfort reading.

    Will all of these bars open up again for the Summer 2019 season? Any newcomers arriving for next summer? And which one was the star of 2018?

    Will you be writing us a new guide for next year?

  3. I really loved Argo Bar on the island of Sifnos in the town of Apollonia. It is a multi-level roof with a chic vibe and great panoramic views of the island.
