Golden sunset across the water with boats in viewA Beginner’s Guide to Ibiza Nightlife

Of the thousands of holidaymakers swarming to Ibiza this summer, most will arrive with the intention of sampling the world renowned nightlife, culminating with an experience at a famous super club.

After a day recharging the batteries while soaking up the sun on one of the beautiful beaches dotted around the island, a few drinks back at the villa and you are fresh and ready to go!

Start with a sunset…

The night begins as the sun sets, and the sunset experience is a must for any night owl. Along the sunset strip in San Antonio, partygoers gather to celebrate another day ending, with chilled sounds echoing from the bars. As the sun disappears, top DJs from all over the world get the crowd in the mood for an unforgettable night out.

Where do you go from here? No doubt most will have an idea of what particular night or DJ they have a preference for, and in Ibiza the choice is endless. Every night is a weekend, every night a party.

The main areas of San Antonio, Playa d’en Bossa and Ibiza town are full of bars and smaller clubs to explore, with glamorous parades in the streets advertising the night’s clubbing options.


For peace of mind it is a good idea to pre order club tickets. Most tickets are cheaper if you buy beforehand. Although there are many PRs selling them on the streets, if you can’t find one when you want one you invariably have to pay more on the door. There is also the chance that, if it is an extremely popular night, you may not get in.

Pre Club Bars

Many of the club promoters enlist the help of these bars to advertise and promote their nights. If you haven’t already pre ordered your tickets, you will be able to buy them here. All are free entry and most arrange free travel to the club for ticket holders. The drinks are obviously cheaper than in the clubs and, more often than not, the headline DJs will play warm up sets before everyone heads to the club. A great way to get in the mood early in a relaxed atmosphere and meet like-minded new people!
