Late summer is the best time to visit this Balearic Island in Spain, although the party capital of the world never truly has any down time. The heart of the international dance music scene, jetsetters land in Ibiza for a chance to hear some of the hottest DJs on the planet.
Most partygoers begin prefunking in the early evening at the wall-to-wall pubs and bars that dot the city, warming up for the night ahead, which will likely last until noon the next day. Ibiza is home to seven super clubs, including Amnesia, Space, El Divino, Pacha, Eden and Es Paradis. Hit up the renowned Privilege, the world’s largest club, to join 10,000 other partygoers as they bounce to the beat or float through the bubbly foam. A different international promoter takes over each night, so the ambiance of the clubs is constantly evolving.
Spend your days recuperating at the local beaches, shops and cafes to recharge for the next night of clubbing. If you want to be in the middle of the action, the five-star Ibiza Gran Hotel is sandwiched between El Divino and Pacha, while the Gran Sol Hotel offers a quieter respite from the busy resort area.
