As poet and renowned crackhead William Wordsworth once proclaimed while looking out across a sea of daffodils “Whoah! We’re going to Ibiza, diddle-diddle-de-dah”.
Yeah, baby, we’re off to The White Isle, to the party capital of the world where the best way to mix pools and parties is to go to a pool party. So pack your bags and join the check-in queue for Venga Airways…
There’s certainly no ‘ush if you’re staying at Ushuaïa Beach Club. The whole hotel is built around the main stage and the club and the whole of Ibiza orbits around this mega-club. Party all night, then rather than forlornly trying to flag down cabs back to your digs, walk a few short steps to your hotel room. The party gets going from mid-afternoon, so turn your balcony into a premium party venue, order in plenty of bubbly and settle in for one of the best shows on the planet. If you’re feeling sleepy, maybe bring ear plugs.
This summer Ushuaïa Beach Club will welcome the likes of David Guetta, Martin Garrix and Calvin Harris along as part of an unmissable line-up.

It’s a big fish, this. Blue Marlin is the place that the stars head when they’re in Ibiza. And real stars, not just Love Islanders; Lewis Hamilton and Leonardo di Caprio are both visitors. The beachside restaurant and club pulls in some of the best acts and maintains a classy exterior throughout. Pull up a day bed and enjoy.
Pete Tong will be in residence every Sunday this summer, and no doubt joined by some mega stars yet to be announced.

It’d be a privilege, I’m sure, to attend the largest nightclub in the world as certified by whoever’s doing Roy Castle’s job now over at the Guinness World Records. Yep, this superclub is ginormous, with it’s truly grandiose scale matched by the DJs who routinely play. Centred around a pool, this is way more than a pool party, it’s a super-sized spectacular mega-rave.
