Hands down, Ibiza dominates the west side of the Mediterranean as the top party destination, and throughout all of Europe the island is rivalled only by the Greek island of Ios or Ayia Napa in Cyprus as a destination for intense festivity with the largest selection of clubs, and the most unrelenting migration of “party tourists” from all over the world. People live by night in Ibiza, and they do so quite extravagantly.
Favourite Destinations (Ibiza)
Experience the famous Ibiza nightlife
Nightlife in Ibiza is, as expected, spectacular, but with so much saturation, you must know where to go to really make a hit. With regular sets from some of Europe's best DJs, from the likes of David Guetta and Calvin Harris, Ibiza apartments are definitely the dream for anyone looking to party. Privilege is the largest nightclub in the whole world, with enough space to fit 10,000 clubbers – be sure to go out on the right night though, otherwise this huge space may end up feeling vastly empty! The Armada is a particular favourite on the island, and regularly hosts DJ duals that are amazing in terms of their ingenuity as well as the fame of the artists. The nightclub Space is a madhouse with a capacity of 8000, with room for as much as 40 DJs a night. Other popular nights out include Cream on Thursdays at Amnesia, Insane on Fridays at Pacha, and Kisstory, run by KISS FM, on Tuesdays at Ocean Beach, an outdoor party venue complete with a pool.
Sit back and relax on the beach
By day, Ibiza offers a stunning landscape and some of the world’s most pristine fine-sand beaches that beckon your summer spirit to relax in the warm sunshine. After the partying dies down and you stumble out of the club in the early hours of the following day, you may end up resting on one of these beautiful beaches till the sun goes down. Recommended beaches in Ibiza are Las Salinas, San Antonio and Playa d’en Bossa. If you can’t manage any sleep, then make sure to take advantage of all the great water sports available to island holidaymakers – swimming, snorkeling, windsurfing and more. For a quieter, less tourist-oriented beach atmosphere, head to Cala Salada, a little cove surrounded by a forest of pine trees. If you head to the caves around the sea you'll discover cave paintings dating as far back as the Bronze age.
