Nightlife in Ibiza
Ibiza is one the large islands located in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Spain. The large island is made up of three cities: Ibiza town, Sant Antoni and Sanata Eularia des Riu. The island has a great deal of Spanish influence and for the major part of the last 5 decades was only visited by the locals from Spain and some Europeans. However, in the past thirty years, Ibiza has become a renowned tourist center.
Surrounded by sea and with a magnificent warm climate all year around, it has become a tourist haven for both Europeans and North Americans. For the major part of the 80s and 90s, it was more famous for its wild parties which went on all night.
The island has lots more to offer than all night parties. Large parts of the island are registered as UN World heritage sites and protected from urbanization. The island has always maintained its natural rugged beauty and a number of movies have been made on Ibiza.
For the tourist who wants to have a great time, the best time to come is spring and summer. The excellent weather allows for outdoor activities. Even today, Ibiza is more famous for its all night parties despite administrative clamp down. Authorities have been trying to erase the "sexy” image and bring in all types of tourists, but for the most part, Ibiza is a haven for the younger crowd who want to party.
If you are going to Ibiza for a party then there are a number of night clubs which are worth your while. The most famous is the Privilege Ibiza hailed as the world’s largest night club.
