Five Easy Beach Getaways to Match Your Mood

You don’t need to fly to the Maldives or the Caribbean to enjoy stunning beaches the moment you step off a private jet. Whether you’re in the mood for exploring, partying, pampering, romancing or retreating, we’ve found a European beach for you; and all are only around an hour from an airport.


Cala Luna, Italy
The crescent-shaped ‘Moon Cove’ is nestled at the foot of the dramatic limestone cliffs south of Cala Gonone in Sardinia. It is accessible by foot (for the ardent walker) or by boat, from Cala Gonone port or Marina di Orosei.

On one side of this secluded 700 metre beach lies a small lagoon surrounded by lush vegetation; on the other, the stunning turquoise waters of the Gulf of Orosei. Airport: Olbia, just over 1 hour.

Tip: Visit the nearby atmospheric caves of Grotta del Bue Marino, for captivating stalactites, stalagmites, an underground beach and traces of neolithic rock carvings.


Psarou Beach, Mykonos
The Greek island of Mykonos offers a choice of breathtaking beaches and coastal vistas but Psarou Beach is the place to be if you’re in the mood to party. The powder-soft sand and azure sea provide a stunning backdrop to the affluent jet-set party scene here. Airport: Mykonos, about 10 minutes.

Tip: For delicious food and a chilled party ambience, head for Nammos beach bar – revered by food critics, fashion editors and celebrities alike.


Cap-Ferrat, France

With three beautiful beaches, this tranquil wooded peninsula between Nice and Monaco is the perfect place to pamper the body and soul. Close enough to indulge in retail therapy or to party at Nikki Beach, but remote enough to unwind on a coastal walk in peace. Airport: Nice, about 30 minutes.

Tip: Revitalise with a renowned Swiss Bellefontaine spa treatment, exclusively at the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat – a wonderful way to complete the therapeutic benefits of this cosmopolitan coastal gem.


Millook Haven, England
For an impromptu romantic British retreat, the windswept Millook Haven delivers. Just five miles south of the seaside town of Bude, this isolated rugged pebble beach borders a 52 acre country estate, and has provided blissful solitude to the stars of stage and screen. Airport: Newquay, Cornwall, about 1 hour.

Tip: For the ultimate coastal chic hideaway experience, rent the iconic Beach Hut. Enjoy the simplicity and privacy of this charming seaside retreat, or call on the concierge to add extra luxuries to your love-nest.


Tagomago Island, Ibiza
For a beach that’s guaranteed to put space between you and the rest of the world, it’s hard to beat a private island. The rocky beach at Tagomago is lapped by turquoise seas and offers stunning vistas from the chic terraces. The island itself is a peaceful nature reserve, just 900 metres off the party island of Ibiza. Airport: Ibiza, about 40 minutes.

Tip: Exclusive rental of Tagomago Island includes a six-bedroom fully staffed villa with a large swimming pool, sun terraces, helipad and a yacht.
