Where to turn up when the sun goes down.

Right off the coast of Spain, the island of Ibiza has quickly become a hot European party destination. Catch a direct flight from Paris and be there in two hours. There's no question you should spend your days on the beach, but with so many clubs populating the notorious island, it can be hard to decide where to spend your nights. This guide is here to help. Keep your friends close (and your phone closer) and have a safe night in Ibiza.

1. The Must-See: Ushuaia

This legendary mecca of music and mischeif won't disappoint. While it's easy to feel sweaty and sticky in other clubs, Ushuaia's unique outdoor venue keeps you looking and feeling cool. Dance in the shallow pools or hustle towards the stage for a slice of the action. Get front row and it's easy to score souvenirs. 

Best events: Hardwell's Carnival, Martin Garrix Multiply, ANTs

The pros: Open-air club, fireworks (sometimes), famous headliners

The cons: Ends early (12 a.m.)

Inside tip: Guests of the Ushuaia Hotel get wristbands to attend concerts for free - so splurge on a five star stay, or just figure out a way to get a wristband. 


2. The Wildcard: Amnesia

Best events: Calvin Harris, Music On

The pros: DJ booth in the middle of the dance floor, amazing sound system, cool-air jets

The cons: Expect to get elbowed, long lines for the bathroom

Inside tip: The club is bigger than you think. It's easy to stay in one room the whole night but you'll miss great acts if you don't explore.

3. The Mothership: Space Ibiza

Feel out of this world in this haven of hedonism. Officially the world's most awarded club, Space knows how to treat their guests right - especially the ones with VIP bracelets. See and be seen on the exlusive VIP balcony overlooking the mosh pit of madness below. 

The pros: Two floors and a funky terrace lounge area, cleanest bathrooms

The cons: Strict security (don't take your shoes off)

Best events: Disclosure, Carl Cox, Elkrow

Inside tip: Located across from Ushuaia, head to Space after the early acts end and make your night last through the next day.
