Ibiza is the centre of the clubbing universe. As thousands of visitors to this tiny little Balearic Island will tell you, it’s not a holiday, it’s a pilgrimage. The world’s best DJs, hottest clubs, most V of VIP areas – the spirit of Ibiza is strong, and you could be at the centre of it all this summer.
Where to stay?
San Antonio is the heartbeat of Ibiza. From here you can walk up to the West End, make every sunset on the strip, lounge on the beach in Central Park Apartments and hit the hottest bars and clubs. There aren’t many better hotels for location than Central Park Apartments – from here you’ll have the best of San Antonio on your doorstep.
Have a West End story
The West End is San Antonio’s nightlife district. A sprawling avenue of raucous bars sloping downhill into the harbour. It’s definitely the most “18 to 30’s” spot in Ibiza but the rest of the White Isle can be a bit pricey so save some Euros with pre-club drinks up this end of town. Head to Hush, a sultry mini-club where a mainly British crowd let loose.
Sunset strip, not to be missed
Every evening crowds gather on the rocks of sunset strip and applaud the setting of the sun over the horizon to the soundtrack of chill-out music. The wave of applause that makes its way across the crowd as day turns into night is an Ibizan ritual you won’t want to miss.
Cafe Mambo on the strip is often the pre-party for some of the biggest DJs. You can see the likes of Pete Tong, Erick Morillo, Erick Priydz and Laidback Luke for free. As with Cafe del Mar drinks aren’t cheap so either shell out or bring your own and enjoy them on the beach.
Eden with its distinctive golden globe roof is the premier club in San Antonio. Spread over two floors the 13 bars, two VIP rooms and chill out room house some of the biggest crowd-pleases on the Island. Tiesto, Judge Jules, Tall Paul, Oliver Lang and Stanton Warriors all grace the decks to packed dance-floors.
Experience Es Paradis
A stone’s throw from Eden is Es Paradis. Typically Mediterranean and breathtakingly beautiful the defining feature is a pyramid roof that opens to the light of dawn. Unique to Es Paradis are the Friday water parties - they really need to be seen to be believed!
So, for all Ibiza has to offer stay in San Antonio and make summer 2013 one to remember!
