Ibiza a wild party with a lot more to it

Published October 11th, 2011

Student Flights’ Suzi Bright heads off to the famous Spanish island of Ibiza where she embraces the party scene. Suzi stays in Playa Den Bossa but also visits the town of San Antonio where she enjoys a waterfront sunset. Taking a break from all the partying, Suzi visits the island of Formentera. Suzi tells us about her trip.


Sun, sand, sangria, and super cool clubs, what more could you ask for from a holiday! There is never a dull moment in Ibiza and it's certainly the best party destination in the world! The opening parties start off with a bang from May and wind up at the end of the European summer in September. I stayed in Playa Den Bossa which is a stone's throw away from the airport. It is also known for the island’s most famous beach, Bora Bora, which is the longest stretch of beach on the island. The music cranks all day long on Bora Bora and it’s the perfect place for a beach party. If relaxing and nursing the hangover is more your thing, there is plenty of room to soak up the sun and enjoy the tunes. The recently renovated Hotel Garbi in Playa Den Bossa is in the prefect location. It is positioned right in front of the beach. This four star property includes a pool bar, a chill-out bar, a restaurant in front of the beach, a disco, a tennis court, and a supermarket- all of this in a friendly atmosphere.


This Spanish island paradise is considered to be the clubbers’ capital of the world and is renowned for its long list of superstar DJ's. I would recommend pre-purchasing your tickets to the nightclubs as most clubs offer discounted prices if you arrive between 8pm and 11pm. Some of the better known clubs include; Space, Amnesia, Pacha, and the biggest night club in the world Privilege. On the west side of the island is the town of San Antonio, home to Ibiza's own sunset strip. There are various bars, the most famous being Café del Mar which is located on the waterfront. Watching the sunset at Cafe Del Mar is a must when in Ibiza and is definitely the place to start off the night ahead.


There are endless things to do in Ibiza and not everything includes partying. One of my highlights was taking a stroll through the capital of the island, Ibiza Town. Its cobblestone streets, beautiful marina, trendy markets and upmarket bars and restaurants are a far cry from the crazy night you may have had the night before. The markets stay open until well after midnight and offer a selection of goodies including funky jewellery, art work, island fashion, and a wide range of trinkets. Along with a variety of water sports the island has to offer, there is also the opportunity to take a day trip to the neighbouring island of Formentera. Known for its white sandy beaches and clear water, it's the prefect getaway when the partying of Ibiza gets too much.
