Is anyone else fed up of it being dark at 5pm and cold mornings? If you’re anything like us, you’re in desperate need of a holiday somewhere warm – and preferably with a sea view.

Oh, and with alcohol on hand too.

If underwater bars sound a little too frightening to you, and you’d rather have a view of the clapping waves, than virtually be inside them, we have some amazing places for you.

The world is your oyster and you don’t have to settle for a mediocre life in a boring bar in your hometown every weekend. From Jamaica to Thailand, we’ve found the best bars with a beach bar.

You’ll be booking a plane ticket by the end of reading this!

If watching the dolphins whilst you eat lunch doesn’t sound like paradise to you, then I don’t know what does. Linda The Beach Bar is nothing short of ecstasy.

Take an afternoon stroll, or rent a car and park up in their car park… whatever you do, don’t miss visiting this beach bar if you get the chance to visit Portugal.

With fabulous views of the sea and beach area, and tables and chairs perfectly placed towards the scenery, you won’t believe that you’re on planet earth when you’re here. Because of its quality food at reasonable prices and great location, there’s an excited atmosphere and there’s never a dull moment.

If you need an escape from working life, and need to sit back, put your feet up and listen to the gentle splashing of the waves, ladies and gentlemen, you’ve found your place right here.

If you’d rather sight-see in the day, then save yourself for the magnificent views of the sunset from outside. Protected perfectly by winds, you’ll feel secure, relaxed and in bliss.

It is compulsory that you add Baba Nest to your bucket list of places to visit.

If you’re not just looking for a beach bar with breathtaking views, but a team of staff who make you feel like royalty, then this is the bar for you.

From parking your car for you, to stringent security measures, you’ll feel secure and calm here. Walk up to their terrace, and you’ll be blessed with amazing views as far as Rawai Beach – one of the very first tourist beaches on Phuket.

Also when you’re on the roof, you’ll have panaromic views of the island, whilst being surrounded by an outdoor pool. If that’s not perfection, I don’t know what is.

Feel relaxed in a calm and modern setting with a fantastic thai culture. The architecture of the bar is fascinating, and many have said this would be the perfect place to propose due to its romantic lighting and tranquil setting.

Bagni Quercetano- Italy

Located right on the beach, you’ll think you died and went to heaven if you ever had the chance to visit here.

Bagni Quercetano has everything you’d need from a bar when you’re on holiday – a beach, great food and friendly staff. No other place on earth offers views quite like here.

Even if you visit during the cold months, it doesn’t matter, because it feels like the sun radiates here all year round.

Their long windows share the amazing views of the beach. Literally just centimeters from the shoreline, you’ll feel so blessed to breathe in the fresh sea air and feel like the world is standing still.

Once you’ve climbed the seemingly endless steps, you can satisfy your taste buds with their forever-evolving menu.

The bar is small, but cosy to make you feel at home, no matter where you’re from in the world. Perfect for families.

Doesn’t the name of this one say it all? Sun and beach. It sounds too good to be true. Almost.

At dinner time, you can be seated at a candle-lit table right on the sand – just like in the movies. And if that doesn’t quite do it for you, you can sit on the deck just behind the bar. Either or sounds perfect.

Sun Beach bar is right in the heart of the Seven Mile Beach in Negril and has amazing views that you just can’t capture on camera.

Right on the beach, you can be a part of the Jamaican way of life, and with regular live performances, you’ll never want to leave.

The water is turquoise and the sand is white… it’s the perfect beach combined with a quaint bar for snacks and drinks.

On the Sani beach lies Anemos. Surrounded by sunbed and a huge sandy beach, you can enjoy a relaxing holiday.

Spend the afternoon here, order some food and even take a swim in the sea. What better ways are there to spend a few hours?

Often they play jazz music with speakers facing the beach, so you can get a tan and unwind.

That’s not to say there’s nothing to do at night, as the beach is illuminated in the dark hours and it’s perfectly located near the Sani Resort, which offers plenty of entertainment for all of the family.

Many say it’s the best beach bar in Kassandra, and the water is shallow so it’s ideal to dip your toes in on a hot day, or play with the kids and not worry about them.

This list is just an example of the places that are waiting for you to visit.

If you love to travel and can’t think of anything better than sitting on the beach with a cocktail in your hand, the you’re in for a treat with the above bars.

It’s always best to plan your visit so that you’re not going during a busy time period, such as August, and that way you can relax and explore the beaches with no stress.
