When it comes to nightlife, there’s no place more famous (or infamous) than Ibiza. Off the east coast of Spain lies the Balearic Islands, with Ibiza being the westernmost island of the bunch. Historically, Ibiza was a quiet island that changed hands with Mediterranean powers over the centuries, but in the last 50 years it has reinvented itself as a clubber’s paradise.

Originally the home of Hippies having a get-together for the 60s and 70s, Ibiza quickly became home to the burgeoning genre of Electronic music. Since then, the hotspots of Ibiza Town and San Antonio have been hosts to House DJs, Ravers and Clubbers since the clubs opened. Three of the biggest clubs in Ibiza that you need to visit are detailed below:

Hï Ibiza

Hï Ibiza is the archetypical new kid on the block, but that hasn’t stopped it from attracting a star-studded lineup of DJs: Armin Van Buuren and Eric Prydz are regulars. Divided into two main rooms, the Theatre and the Club, they have impressive light shows and their set-up changes completely every night. The nightclub also has three open-air areas, lots of vegetation, special VIP amenities including private Teepee tents and even a DJ booth in the unisex restroom.

Beers start at 13 Euros, and cocktails start at 18: expensive, but not overly so.

Amnesia

Arguably the most quintessential of Ibiza clubbing experiences, Amnesia has long been the backdrop for some of the island’s most unforgettable clubbing moments. Two massive rooms – one a dark, cavernous cauldron, the other an expansive arena that is flooded with light when the sun rises – are guarded by the notorious Amnesia ice cannons that could strike at anytime.

Spirit and mixers cost around €15 or more and a beer €13. Water is €9. The bars upstairs are more expensive.

Pacha

The oldest and most established club in Ibiza, Pacha is well-known around the world and still one of the must-visit locales in Ibiza. These days, with over four decades of party-planning under its belt, it boasts one of the biggest rosters of talent on the White Isle, with David Guetta and Robin Schulz regularly DJing. Take your pick from the cream of the electronic music crop, with everything from underground to mainstream to pop classics from the past being represented.

Prices start at 12 Euros for a pint of beer, but will get pricier if there’s a specific event going on like F*** Me I’m Famous.

Ibiza is the place to go for those looking for the clubbing experience of a lifetime. Ibiza is a popular stopping point on a superyacht cruise, with You Charter Direct offering several cruises that pass by Ibiza and other coastal cities along the western Mediterranean.
