Ftelia Beach Club in Mykonos has been named the best beach club in the world for 2020 by prestigious Condé Nast Traveler magazine.
The club’s aesthetic was inspired by the famous resorts of the 60s and 70s in Southern France and coastal Italy, seamlessly blending Mykonos’ buzzy cosmopolitan vibe with the natural beachfront surroundings.
Nikos Fotiadis, the famed Michelin Star Executive Chef of the club, has creatively crafted a variety of dishes that you can taste here using fresh, high-quality local ingredients.
Having worked for top renowned restaurants all over Greece, he has built up an impressive reputation and has received numerous gastronomic distinctions.
The menu features Cycladic and Aegean flavours, with plenty of savoury dishes, sweets and amazing cocktails on offer.
“A far more recent but sure-to-be-a-hit addition to the beach on Mykonos’ wild northern shore is this club, huddled into a sheltered corner. Its unexpected burnt-orange palette was conceived by designer Fabrizio Casiraghi when he flew over the island for the first time and admired the contrast between the terracotta roof tiles and the white architecture below. The club spills down, amphitheatre-like, towards the sand,” said the editors of Condé Nast.
“In the restaurant at the top, an athletic crowd (the area is a windsurfing hotspot) tuck into sea urchin and grilled octopus with beetroot puree, washed down with minerally wine from hot new Santorini vineyard Vassaltis; then fall asleep in one of the Sixties armchairs by Gae Aulenti on the terrace; or dance to tunes the owners describe as ‘music you would like to hear on a mix tape’ down on the sand,” they added.
