Of all the things to do in Ibiza, the number one item on my agenda was a visit to one of the mega clubs the island is renowned for. Superficial, flashy, and overpriced as they are, at the end of the day it was the reason for my entire trip in the island. By the time I returned to Ibiza Town from my voyage to Cafe del Mar on the other side of the island in St. Antoni, it was pitch black outside. Even though I didn’t have a reservation, I returned to my hostel and quietly stashed my things in a locker for the evening - I had no need for a hostel, my goal was to party the night away until the sunrise.
My first day in Ibiza was incredibly long. Considering I started my day at five in the morning and spent the better part of 15 hours walking, exploring, and hiking, I’m impressed I didn’t pass out midway through the afternoon. It’s actually quite surprising to realize just how long the sun stays up when you don’t spend half the day asleep. Regardless, I feel it is a requirement that while on the island of Ibiza one must remain sleep deprived for the duration of their stay.
For years, a trip to Ibiza has remained at the top of my bucket-list. This tiny island located 50 miles off the coast of Spain is for fans of electronic music what Mecca is to Muslims. Ibiza is world renowned as the epicenter of electronic music and, for those even slightly interested in the genre, is a destination that must be visited at least once in your lifetime. For those of you who ever get the opportunity to step foot on this island, do not expect a wholesome, family-friendly experience unless you stay outside of the two main cities: Ibiza Town and St. Antoni de Portmany. In the central areas of these cities, you need to mentally prepare yourself for everything to be overpriced, flashy, and fake. Overall, there is a general hedonistic feeling that permeates the air and makes Vegas seem like Disney World.
