Bar in Venice

All the style you’d expect from an Italian beach club, with bronzed regulars in enormous sunglasses sprawled on lipstick-red designer chairs well past sunset. Expect open cabanas on a raised platform, dancing on the sand below and occasional DJ duels. There's also a good restaurant upstairs, Marcandole al Mare (www.marcandole.it; 11am-11pm Friday to Tuesday, 11am-3pm Wednesday), with water views.

The club is situated right at the south-western end of the beach, opposite the Piave Vecchia lighthouse.
