Ever heard of a superclub? The term was originally coined in the '90s, and it refers to a club with a capacity in the thousands.
The world's biggest superclub is located right in Ibiza. Privilege Ibiza (whose capacity is 10,000) has a 9-week event called Resistance coming up. For this event, Privilege books some of the world's most prolific techno DJs.
But Privilege isn't the only one. Clubs like HÏ, Amnesia, and Shine also draw massive crowds and play super dance-y music.
Get ready to have some of the most exciting nights of your life in Ibiza, while at the same time immersing yourself in its musical history. Ibiza is considered to be one of the starting places of electronic dance music.
2. Beautiful Beaches
Sure, you might've been to the beach. But you've never been to an Ibiza beach - that's a whole different experience.
There are dozens of beaches in Ibiza, many of them with different vibes and activities to offer.
For example, visit Cala Carbo for a long, sun-drenched day; visit San Antonio Bay for an exhilarating experience at the inflatable water park; bring the kiddos to the shallow waters of Cala Conte.
If you're looking for a more adventurous day at the beach, check out some of the watersports or snorkeling excursions available in Ibiza. The water's fine!
3. Authentic Food
Ibiza's nightlife and beaches might overshadow its culinary scene, but that doesn't mean it's nothing special.
Take Sa Capella, for example. This restaurant was renovated from a former church, leaving it surrounded in the area's history and culture. If you plan to go, be sure to make a reservation due to its popularity.
And there are plenty of other places to visit for a taste of the authentic Mediterranean or Spanish-influenced dishes, like paella.
Can't bring yourself to leave the beach? No sweat. There's no shortage of beachside establishments serving seafood and sangria along Ibiza's ample shorelines.
Parts of Ibiza are known for being home to 1960s-esque hippies. If this is your aesthetic, be sure to check out the hippie markets sprinkled throughout the island.
Check out one of the oldest markets, Es Canar, for hundreds of stalls filled with treasures, from clothes to handmade jewelry and trinkets.
But if the bohemian style isn't your thing, Ibiza has also been a go-to spot for many affluent celebrities. Famed fashion designer Stella McCartney hosted a pop-up shop in Ibiza in 2015 and 2016.
