Unwind in your very own waterside beach club located just steps away from the ocean for idyllic sea-level views made possible on a luxury yacht charter vacation.
Located at water-level in the aft area of the yacht, a beach club can have a number of features; from fully-stocked bars to hammam spas, as well as an array of comfortable lounging areas for you and your guests to relax and unwind whilst enjoying scenic waterside views of your surroundings.
It’s also the perfect jumping off point for fun activities in the water on the yacht’s toys and tenders.
More than just a place to splash in the sea, the beach club has transformed the traditional aft deck tender garage into a luxurious waterside entertainment centre, and is now a must-have feature on every luxury charter yacht, offering guests a range of excellent waterfront facilities from lounge terraces, bars and dive centres, to gyms, Hammam spas and swim platforms; it is clear to see the appeal.
Here we have compiled the latest and most impressive superyacht beach clubs to be found in the global charter fleet.
Launched in 2021, this spectacular 80m/262ft Bilgin yacht boasts one of the best superyacht beach clubs in the world.

On top of all this, there are myriad plush seating areas located throughout her beach club area, as well as wide fold-out terraces on either side, offering guests the opportunity for a spot of sunbathing whilst being lulled by the rhythmic dash of the ocean against her hull.

As you descend the teak steps into the atrium of her beach club with its exquisite mosaic-tiled centrepiece adorning the floor and contemporary cedar wood wall paneling, you’ll notice a large elevated Jacuzzi up ahead, bathed in sunlight from the opening high above.

Alternatively, they can indulge in a spot of pampering in her sauna and steam rooms after a long day's excursions ashore.
