Bikini Culture's beach escape picks for Autumn

We all get it; the dreaded feeling that summer is over and winter is approaching. The aperol spritzs’ get replaced with red wine and those long sunny days slowly get shorter and shorter. BUT, while you scramble around for some jumpers and woollies don’t put away your bikini just yet because we have found a few places we think you’ll be able to squeeze in a last minute tan and a couple more days of sunshine.


Little beach house Barcelona

A beach facing members club (Soho house group) with 17 bedrooms in a 1950’s building. This ‘Catafornian’ style hotel (that is - Catalan/ Californian) couldn’t be more perfect for an early morning swim or a margherita on the beachfront restaurant.


Grace hotel Mykonos

September is the best time to go to Greece, especially now every man and their dog are going to Mykonos, you wont have to fight with the crowd for a spot on the beach! Grace hotel is a stunning boutique spa hotel which we think is the perfect place for both a boogie and a frozen fruit shot by the pool which yes, they serve daily.

Ksar Char- Bagh Marrakech

This is the perfect time to visit Morocco! Not only has the North African sun started to mellow a bit but you can relax on the beach and feast on local seafood; the Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines are rich in beautiful beaches and friendly restaurants.

The Ksar Char- bagh is breathtakingly grand, intricately tiled and laid back but still recognisably Moroccan.

Hotel Excelsior Dubrovnik, Croatia

This hotel is a historic five-star hotel, with fantastic views of Dubrovnik's medieval walls rising from the sea. As the summer crowds depart, tranquillity returns to Dubrovnik's stone alleys – cruise ships still call here, but tourist numbers drop dramatically. Visit the city for open air bars and rooftop spas!
