Most of you have probably been there, done that. Or if you haven’t, you might be planning one for this summer. That’s right, we’re talking about clubbing holidays. A holiday where you can let your hair down, dance the night – or day – away, and see some of the world’s best DJs.
Of course, this kind of holiday doesn’t appeal to everyone and venturing out to Faliraki, Ayia Napa, Laganas or Malia might have lost its shine for some people. But for those of you who just want to get out there and have the best time ever, here are some of the world’s best clubbing destinations for you to visit this summer.
Ibiza has long been THE destination to go and party and there are a few good reasons why this Spanish island remains on the list when Malia and the rest don’t get a mention. You’ve got the Ibiza Rocks pool parties with the likes of Craig David playing every week, day dancing at Ushuaia, and the weird and wonderful Zoo Project at Benimussa Park. There are also the classic Ibiza clubs such as Pacha and Amnesia, or you can keep it chill for a night down at Café Mambo. With so much variety, Ibiza has a party scene for everyone and that’s why it’s still one of the best destinations to go clubbing.
Mykonos is like Santorini’s just as beautiful, but wilder and edgier, little sister. That’s right, this island still has the white washed buildings and beautiful sunsets but it also has the beach parties too. Start off at Paraga Beach, Little Venice or Psarou Beach before heading to the real party places of Paradise Beach or Paradise Club where you’ll definitely have a night to remember.
The second Spanish destination on this list is Marbella. It’s chic, its fabulous and the summer is just one long party. Sounds lush doesn’t it? Well, if it sounds appealing, get a flight booked to Malaga and get ready to enjoy the luxe sounds of Nikki Beach, Tibu, Pangea or Funky Buddah. Each offers a different atmosphere and some even over-look the marina where the rich and famous hang out and dock their yachts for the summer.
Miami is a little further afield but as a city known for its love of electronic dance music, we couldn’t leave it of this list. As well as the rooftop bars that look over Miami’s incredible skyline and the addictive vibe of the mega clubs on South Beach – be sure to check out LIV and Broken Shaker – Miami is also home to Ultra Music Festival which takes place every March. This festival is an outdoor, electronic music extravaganza and draws in DJs and visitors from all over the world for 3 days of fun in the sun. Not one to miss if you’re looking for the party of all parties.
A relative newbie on the European clubbing scene is Pag, a Croatian island that takes both relaxing by day and partying by night, very seriously. Kalypso is one of the most famous clubs on the island, with a line-up of festivals throughout the summer, an open-air space, and a pool, you’re bound to end up here at least once during your time on Pag. Zcre Beach is another place with open air clubs a plenty and Papaya and Aquarius Zcre are where you’ll end up spending your days. With top acts such as Tiesto, Calvin Harris and Micky Romero having played here in the past, there’s no doubt that 2017 will be another showstopper of a year.
