Mijas Costa seafront venue Max Beach has reopened its doors following a huge renovation. If you loved Max Beach before, you cannot fail to be blown away by its recent dramatic overhaul. The new décor is Miami-style with turquoise notes popping through the predominantly contemporary white decoration. One major change to Max Beach has been the addition of an infinity pool that looks directly out over the glistening Mediterranean Sea. By the pool you can take a single bed for €30 for the day, and double beds are just €50. VIP beds that can accommodate up to four people are €80 for the day – a veritable bargain compared with other beach clubs along the coast!
Max Beach’s pool area is a place where you can relax with waiter service while listening to Ibiza chill-out music and enjoying unsurpassable views out to sea or overlooking their modernistic pool. Head chef Marc Barbot uses only fresh ingredients and everything, including the desserts, is homemade. The menu is vast and steered towards French/Belgian cuisine, but there is something to satisfy all diverse tastes. One menu for €25 includes a starter (such as salmon tartar, St Jacques scallops, prawns pil pil or foie gras), main course (featuring the likes of chicken vol-au-vent, risotto or spare ribs) and dessert. If you are a little hungrier, there is an even heartier menu for just €32. Pastas and rice dishes are also featured on the menu, and diners with special diets or allergies are well accommodated for.
By the pool, you can order snacks such as burgers and salads including the famous Max Beach Salad with warm goat’s cheese, apple, smoked salmon, honey and pine nuts. The cocktails are all made from fresh fruit, with no syrups and with the highest quality liqueurs and spirits. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served every day of the week, and on Sunday they offer a special roast of the day for €25 between 12pm and 7pm. The Sunday lunch includes a variety of six starters and six main courses, plus a selection of desserts to choose from. If you want to enjoy a drink at Max Beach later in the evening, their pub offers live music every night in a relaxing ambience between 8pm until 11pm.
As manager Frank Spies notes, “Carl Creemers (owner of Max Beach) is passionate about offering a superlative beach club experience at any time of the day at great value. Everyone working here is experienced in their field so you are sure to get the best possible service.”
