If holidays are all about sun, sand, sea and singing your heart out, you’ll want to visit some of these destinations. From dancing til dawn and sipping cocktails under the stars to epic beach parties and techno raves, these destinations are some of the world’s best when it comes to nightlife.
From lantern-lit streets to live music, Morocco’s nightlife is as colourful as it is varied. Head to Marrakech for a carnival-like atmosphere, rooftop drinks and international DJs in busy nightclubs. The beachfront Agadir is more low-key, serving up a traditional Moroccan experience: think cushioned seating areas, sunken floors and mood lighting. Agadir has plenty of lively nightclubs – the majority of which have very cheap entry fees. For the chicest bars in Morocco, you’ll want to visit the cosmopolitan city of Casablanca. Famous for its namesake, you won’t find many nightclubs, but you’ll be astounded by the gorgeous cocktails and wondrous city views. This guide has all you need to find out more about Moroccan nightlife.
Arguably the mecca of all clubbing holidays, Ibiza is a must for anyone who likes a proper party. The White Isle attracts the world’s best DJs to play in its legendary clubs: from Amnesia and Pacha to Ushuaia and Privilege. Whether you want to sip cocktails poolside or dance until the sun comes up, Ibiza has plenty to offer. San Antonio’s Sunset Strip is the place to be for gorgeous sunsets over the sea, Ushuaia boasts the best, most glamorous daytime parties, and Playa d’en Bossa offers a chilled-out vibe near Old Town. This Balearic island is the birthplace of party culture.
On the far east coast of Mexico lies Cancun: heaven for the intrepid partygoer. For the most epic experience, go during Spring Break – the first two weeks of March. The party spot is swarmed by students, and drinking and dancing happens around the clock. If you’re after a more laid-back vibe, visit between June and September. From beach parties to amazing club nights, there’s enough to keep anyone interested: Coco Bongo is Cancun’s most famous venue: expect acrobats, table-top conga lines and confetti showers all night. When you’re not raving, soak up the sun on the white-sand beaches and visit the delectable seafood restaurants.
With almost more clubs than there are people, Berlin is perfect for a cheap, cultural and cool night out. With some of the world’s most iconic clubs on offer, it’s your chance to put your edge to the test and try your luck with venues like Berghain. Berlin’s clubs are famous for their tough entry rules, and to stand a chance at getting in you need to don your best black-leather clothes, don’t drink too much, and attempt to speak some German. Berlin’s incredible nightlife has everything from underground techno venues to rock and alternative clubs, and everything keeps going until late into the night. As you explore the city, you’ll find a host of incredible pop-up bars.
Wherever you go in Croatia, you’re guaranteed a great night out. During the winter, the nightlife in big cities like Split, Zadar and Zagreb takes over. But once the weather warms up, the true party scene comes out to play. A series of massive music festivals kick the summer season off on Hvar and Pag islands, Tisno and Pula, and the festivities continue throughout the long, balmy summer. For hedonistic electronic beach parties, head to Pag Island, while chic, ritzy glamour can be found at Hvar’s illustrious set of clubs.
As you can see, there’s plenty of choice if you’re craving clubs, nights out and plenty of decibels. Whether it’s poolside beats, after-dark tunes or beach parties, take your pick and get stuck in!
