Ibiza is truly a magical place. There are many different types of Ibiza's to experience. You can take a family vacation, you can have a quite relaxing beach holiday, you can have an action packed water sports adventure or you can go to the island for what post people do and for what it is most famous for: To Party!
Ibiza has been the breeding ground for some of the most famous DJs in the world. It now also attracts the top talent from around the world to its non-stop, all night, huge electronic parties.
It would not be uncommon for 5 of the top 10 DJs in the world to visit Ibiza during a single week in summer. The island is literally built for it.
There is a wide array of what are known as 'super clubs' throughout the island. These clubs are huge, with capacities from 2000 â 15,000 people! They are all located away from town, almost like little complexes. They have big chartered busses that run party-goers all night to and from their respective towns.
DJs like David Guetta, Tiesto, Roger Sanchez, Paul Okenfold, Paul Van Dyke, Deadmau5 â the list goes on and on â play at the clubs on a regular. Many of them are even residents (meaning they have a set time slot each week) at these clubs. The clubs are the equivalent to a concert or festival, but the logistics are usually better as they are so used to the types of numbers and crowds and they are permanent facilities not make-shift, one time only set ups.
Beyond the large clubs there is still plenty of buzz around the city. The promoters are like nowhere else. There will be young English and Spanish kids running up and down the beach and busy tourist streets of San Antonio handing out flyers and trying to pull you into the various bars and clubs that exist around the town.
Make sure to head over to sunset strip for one of the most spectacular sunsets you will ever see. During summer, be sure to reserve a table if you want a good seat in one of the busier bars such as Mambo or Mint. You might even catch a famous DJ doing a warm up set in the evening before he heads over to one of the major clubs.
While Ibiza can be very expensive if you choose to hit the major clubs every night, with tickets to big nights at around 50 euros each and bottled water and drinks costing 7-15 euro each, you can easily grab some good deals in town. Head over to The West End in San Antonio and start chatting to the promoters on the streets. A little bit of negotiating and you can get some very good deals on pre-drinks and food for the night.
If you're into electronic music, night clubs and an all round good time, Ibiza is a hard place to beat and should definitely be on your to visit list.
