Famed the world over for its nightlife, staying in Ibiza's playful San Antonio Town you'll be in the heart of the action. It's come a long way in 30 years from a small fishing village to an international DJ hub but San Antonio still has a big connection with the water. You can enjoy the golden beach, take a boat trip from the marina or watch the sun set over the Mediterranean from the Sunset Strip chill-out bars. Then as the evening goes on the music cranks up a notch and the party begins.
Ibiza is the unrivalled king of clubbing and San Antonio Town is the place to be on the island with funky bars, huge clubs, amazing music and an atmosphere to match.
The Sunset Strip breaks you in gently with a line of chill out clubs and cafe bars including perhaps the most famous Ibiza venue Cafe del Mar. Along with firm favourite Cafe Mambo, you can have a bite to eat or sip a cocktail day or night. Set on the shores of the bay of Calo des Moro you'll catch the most beautiful sunset views over the Mediterranean from the Sunset Strip. You can also hear warm-up sets from the likes of Tiesto and Pete Tong before they go on to play the big clubs.
From here, the West End is only a 10-minute walk to a big selection of pubs, bars and some of the smaller clubs, playing everything from indie to pop and harder dance tunes.
It's along the seafront that the big clubs call home though. Among the superclubs are Eden and the glamorous Es Paradis, with its pyramid-shaped roof, an interior hanging with plants and a sunken area ripe for foam parties. Relative newcomer Plastik is a hip club patronised by Mark Ronson.
There's also a regular disco bus throughout the summer season that will take you to any of the island's super clubs from San Antonio's main bus station and back again. As well as being a lot of fun, it's only €3 each way.
