Marbella has it all: beautiful beaches, a traditional old town full of narrow, winding streets and whitewashed buildings, and a bustling nightlife. Top of your hit list for drinks and dancing should be Mahiki Beach, newly opened this summer, in partnership with Sala Group. The iconic London clubbing venue – which counts Princes William and Harry amongst its fans – is opening its doors on Marbella’s beachfront. You should also head to Astral Cocktail Bar on the coast of Puerto Banus for a brilliantly kitsch evening. Built to look like a big ship, the cocktails are plentiful, the clientele are up for a laugh and the atmosphere will get you in the party mood.

Mykonos is Saint Tropez meets Ibiza. It’s as glamorous as it is beautiful. People come to see and be seen – and to party hard. Unsurprisingly, word has spread and thousands flock to experience the glitz, gloss and glitter of the party crowd every summer. Nammos beach bar and restaurant is an essential stop. With a philosophy of recreating ‘the atmosphere of life aboard a luxury yacht, but on the beach’, you can soak in the exotic celebratory vibe, drinking and dancing in your cut-out swimsuit while the sun sets behind you. Moni Club is your next stop – boasting international DJs and master mixologists in a cosmopolitan hotspot.

Sardinia is a mad mix of culture, adventure, socialising and quiet-time. Whether you’re into extreme sports, sightseeing, architecture, history or eating and drinking, this is the summer destination of choice for doers – people who want to be entertained. And one of the most entertaining activities is to check out a few of the party places. Sottovento, in Porto Cervo, has been the club of choice for the glamorous jet-setters for over 30 years, with big-name DJs, live music and an in-house restaurant. Also, Estasi’s is an open-air bar that specialises in house music and extremely glamorous clientele. Open until 6am during peak season, it’s the place to go to see and be seen – and you can always pop into the adjacent piano bar, Free Jazz Café, for a breather if needed.
