La Brisa in Bali takes the top spot for Google searches. Located on the Indonesian island's southeast coast, the beach club has racked up more than 1.5 million searches over the last 12 months. This could be thanks to its breathtaking decor, made from 500 disused boats.

Cody Candee, CEO and Founder of Bounce, comments on the popularity of beach clubs:


“Beach clubs offer you the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind, whether you want to lounge in the sun, sip on cocktails, or feast on top-tier cuisine from the extensive menus. The picturesque locations of beach clubs also mean you take in the fantastic scenery surrounding them. 


“Asian destinations rank particularly well in our index. Two beach clubs in Bali alone make the top five, with La Brisa taking the top spot. Dubai’s branch of Nommos also ranks highly. Mediterranean beach clubs are again some of the most popular, with destinations in Mykonos and Sardinia ranking third and fifth, respectively.”  

Methodology

Beginning with a list of beach clubs taken from list articles, including CondéNaste Traveller, we analyzed each one on the following factors. We then gave each beach club a normalized score out of ten for each of the factors, before taking an average across each of these scores to reach our final overall score out of ten.

Proportion of "excellent" reviews: The total number of “excellent” reviews divided by the total number of reviews for each beach club according to Tripadvisor.

Instagram Posts: The total number of posts using the hashtag #[beach club] or #[beach club location] on Instagram.  

TikTok Posts: The total number of posts using the hashtag #[beach club] or #[beach club location] on TikTok

Number of Dishes Available on Dinner Menu: The total number of dishes available on each beach club’s dinner menu, taken from each beach club’s website. 

Due to the lack of complete data, sunbed hire cost and the number of events were excluded from the index. 

Sunbed Hire Cost: The cost of a sun bed for one person for a day, according to each beach club’s website. 

Number of Events: The total number of events each beach club will hold over the 2024 season, according to each beach club’s website.
