It seems that since the words “Beach Party” were uttered, Ibiza had already branded itself as the party island to be on. Ibiza has more party goers visit annually than any other of its Balearic counterparts. Every summer at least three famous DJs are on this island playing until the break of dawn.
Known around the world for THE beach to party on in Greece, Mykonos’ capital Hora, has hundreds of bars ready to quench that party thirst. Not to mention that all the major resorts lining the sandy beach front are armed to the teeth with popular clubs and bars.
South Beach, Miami
Considered by many people to be America’s best beach town, South Beach offers a lot of party for those who can afford it. With table service easily going for $500 an up, going out to South Beach means you better look good if you are looking to meet people.
Goa is the party spot in India established long ago by the 1960s counterculture youth from America. To this day, the ideal of a free spirited life have been translated into some major Rave scenes, most notable of which is the Goa Trance rave scene.
Haad Rin, Koh Phangan, Thailand
There was a time when full moon parties were just a myth spoken amongst backpackers kept secret from mass tourism. Those days are long gone and now the small island of Koh Phangan expects at least 20,000 party seekers annually.
Zrce Beach, Novalja, Croatia
Not as famous as it’s European counterparts, Zrce Beach in Croatia is no less a party scene. In fact I would go to on to say that this quickly booming party scene has all the seeds required to one day make its mark on the world stage.
Nissi Beach, Aya Napa, Cyprus
Nissi Beach has been the hot spot for Eurpe’s young party-hardy since the late nineties and exploded in 2002 when BBC Radio started broadcasting live from the party beach. Not to mention the fact that this beach is easily the cleanest beach on our list having won the Blue Flag designation.
St. Tropez, France
If you think South Beach is an expensive party scene, think again. St. Tropez attracts the world’s rich, famous and all around elite. Spending cash is not going to be a problem for you if you chose to party here but that is the price you have to pay in order to play with the luxurious lot.
Beaches of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
In Mexico’s Cabo San Lucas, you can find yourself face down in the sand before you even spend that $50 you set aside for a wild night. The Mexican Peso is so cheap that partying in one of Cabo’s many famous nightlife establishments could turn out to be quite the handful!
Kuta Beach, Bali, Indonesia
Kuta, simply put, is Bali’s entertainment center. The stretch of nightlife now reaches out 4 miles away from Kuta itself and into other towns. Clubs, karaoke bars and everything you can imagine putting into an Asian beach town is right here.
