Ibiza is undoubtedly a great holliday destination especially for clubbers during the summer season, which runs from May to Septemeber. Ibiza is actually one of the smallest Baelaric islands but it turns out to be the most fun filled and entertaining with world renowned clubs that are extremely popular among tourists- and DJs- from all over the world.
The top 5 clubs in Ibiza
To start with, Privilege is one of the biggest clubs in the world (mentioned in the Guinness Book of World Records). It is extremely luxurious with an outstanding interior and astonishing light effects that leave an unexpected lifetime impact. It includes a huge swimming pool and a marvellous dance floor as well. Odds are you’ll lose contact with your friends on your very first visit, but this may result in you enjoying its alluring and overwhelming decor and mind-blowing interior. Once here, you will also have the chance to dance on one of the world’s largest dance floors.
Amnesia is another great club in Ibiza which came into being in 1976. Unlike Privilege Amnesia is immensely popular and famous for its marvelous sound system and the effects it creates. A large number of successful patronizers of amnesia make use of its outstanding sound system to create an everlasting impression on its visitors. This club encompasses a large greenhouse and also contains several bars and VIP areas.
Pacha was founded in 1973 and over time has gained immense popularity among both tourists and locals. During summer months this club is fully packed with visitors from all over the world. This club has 5 different musical styles and remains open during the winter season as well- you can save some cash by visiting during the low season.
The next top club in Ibiza is Space, said to beone of the world’s best night clubs. This club has attracted thousands of tourists from all over the world due to its overwhelming aura and atmosphere. Space is and after-hours club, meaning that it opens early morning right after the time the other clubs shut down.
El Divino is another famous club in Ibiza that was opened in 1992. Initially, this club allowed access to selected customers only, but later opened its doors for everyone. El Divino offers high quality house music and superb stage performances with a touch of glamour.
The best beaches in Ibiza
Not surprisingly the beaches are most crowded from June to September although the waters are warm from late April until the end of October. The Mediterranean climate keeps Ibiza warm for much of the year and low season is a great time to holiday- illas in Ibiza are very cheap out of season and worth looking into.
If you’re looking for peace and quiet after a hard nights clubbing sessionthen there are some magnificent unpopulated beaches that are definitely worth making the extra effort to get to. Cala Xarraca in the north of the island is surrounded by cliffs and has little sign of life making for a very idyllic day out. Cala d’Hort has views out to the stunning Es Vedra rock and is well worth the drive down to the far south west. If you’re looking for a hippy experience, watching the sun go down in Cala Benirras is a great place to visit. There’s a variety of performers every night, from circus acts to musicians, fire breathers and more.
Ibiza has many nudist and gay friendly beaches as well making it a very cosmopolitan place to visit. Notable beaches are Es Cavallet and Los Molinos (Figueretas) on the south east side of the island. Remember that all beaches in Ibiza (and Spain) are topless friendly so if getting rid of those tan lines is something you’re looking forward to then this is a great place to be.
For those who have more than a few days on, Formentera is definitely worth a visit as it has some of Europe’s finest beaches. The majority of them fly the covered Blue Flag which highlights the cleanness of the crystal clear blue water. There are good windsurfing and catamaran centres on Es Pujols and Migjorn beach for those who want some activity.
If looking for cool places to hang out with music and nice loungers there’s are a number of beach clubs that offer this kind of experience: Amante (formally Sol Den Serra) down a dirt track near Cala Llonga, Delano and Ashuaia in Playa Den Bossa bringi a new kind of life to the stretch of beach opposite Space. Throw in the old favourites of Sa Trinxa at Salinas and Blue Marlin at Cala Jondal and beach life has never been this good in Ibiza!
