Ibiza is an island in the Mediterranean, just off of the southeast coast of Spain. It is the third largest Spanish island in that area. With the last few decades, it has become one of the hottest islands for young tourists to visit because of its many nightclubs, original techno dance music scene, and parties everywhere, every night. If you love this lifestyle, and you love the views of the beautiful blue sea all day, then this should be on your bucket list for places to go and things to do. If you are about to head to Ibiza for spring break, to celebrate a milestone birthday, or just have some fun, here is where you can find some of the hottest club scenes and parties.
Boat Parties in Ibiza
Between the western coastline of Spain and Ibiza itself, there are miles and miles of shore where boats can dock. Many of these boats offer tours of the coast, tours around Ibiza and the neighboring islands, and tours in the Mediterranean Sea itself. If you do not take a tour, you can still hop aboard in the evenings on many boats that offer boat parties in Ibiza.
The boats quickly turn into floating nightclubs, flowing with drinks and thumping with loud club music. There are also boats that will set sail at sunset, and turn into nightclubs on the water the minute it is dark, allowing you to enjoy the nightlife while also enjoying the sailing trip each boat takes on its own route. In addition to all of the above, you can secure a private charter/boat for a private party, and have the boat sail anywhere or dock anywhere you like.
The Heart of Ibiza Town
Ibiza Town is the largest city on the island. It is also the first place everyone visits for clubbing and nightlife because of all the clubs at the very heart of this city. At any one time, more than half of the residents in this city are out at night, accompanied by thousands of tourists at the height of the touring season (usually the American summer). If you like it really crowded and want to meet a lot of new people, plan your visit during June, July, and August. Otherwise, plan your trip for November, January, or February, when things are calm before Christmas or winding down after the holiday season. If you do go during the Navidad celebrations, you will find that it is very crowded indeed, but also extremely festive and fun because the clubs do all kinds of decorations and seasonal songs, food, and drink in the clubs.
Beach Parties in Santa Eularia des Riu
If you would rather have a party on the beach, then Eularia des Riu is where you go. Many of the hotels and resorts on Ibiza can be found here, and most of them are so close to the beach that you only have to walk out of your hotel and across a stretch of road to get to the beach. During the warmest months of the year, beach parties are held almost nightly, with fresh seafood taken from the Mediterranean boiling or steaming over beach fires.
Most people have to bring their own alcohol, but some hotels will host a party and supply the alcohol served over a makeshift bar on the beach. If you miss a party boat departing at sunset, or all of the boats are full when you get to the coast, you can party on the beach to give the boat passengers a good send-off. Your consolation prize is that you can take a late-night swim, while the boat party attendees out sailing can only enjoy the views.
