It may be winter, and we may be still be in odd and unusual times, but that doesn’t mean our minds can’t wander to sunnier days, right?
Whether you had a Euro summer planned with champagne on rotation, or you’re missing the warmth of the sun on the sand, we can do one or all of the following:
A) Cry for what could have been
B) Live our best lives locally
C) Live vicariously through Instagram
D) Continuously scroll through our camera roll
I’d like to lock in C with a dash of B, thanks Eddie.
So, with that in mind, I stumbled across some interesting stats about living your best beach club life. From Ibiza to Bali, beach clubs have it going on and in more ways than one. Sure, the sun, sand and water combo are an obvious drawcard, but do you know what’s really the money maker and IG content winner? Champagne.
Turns out, beach clubs make for the prime opportunity to splash some cash.
Can you guess which beach club sells the most expensive bottle of bubbles? Or, which beach clubs are most Instagrammed? Luckily for you, we’ve utilised our finest investigative journalism skills, and delivered you the stats you didn’t know you needed.
To pop a bottle at one of the most Insta-worthy beach clubs around the world, be ready to splash same cash. Ready to be a high roller or spend your life savings for one day only? Here’s where to do it:
