From Croatia to Cancun, Magaluf and Malia, you’re just a click away from getting the party started with Expedia. Whether you see yourself sipping cocktails on Nissi Beach or partying at Pag Island, we’ve got clubbing holidays for every type of raver.
Here are some of our most popular party holiday destinations…
Ibiza is to clubbing what salt is to pepper – together, they just work. With world-famous DJs and champagne-soaked pool parties attracting the crème de la crème of clubbers, the only question to ask yourself is: which party should I hit
Those looking to make a splash on their visit to the Balearic Islands should head to Ocean Beach. Pulled up along S’Arenal’s sapphire shoreline, this lavish resort is known for housing some of the island’s hottest pool parties. And don’t be surprised if you see a few famous faces; Ed Sheeran is just one of the many A-listers who frequent the area during summer.
Once night-time falls make your way to San Antonio’s Sunset Strip for the best of the clubbing action. Weave your way around the strip’s many mega clubs, where the likes of David Guetta and Martin Garrix spin tunes into the early hours. If you’re unsure where to start your Ibiza clubbing holiday, you can’t go wrong with a visit to any of the three most famous clubs: Pacha, Café Mambo and Ushuaïia.
Zante’s bumper crop of clubs and beach parties has made the island a long-standing favourite with Brits travelling abroad.
To catch the best of Zante’s after-dark action, look no further than Laganas Beach. Tucked into the south-east arc of the island, Laganas Beach decorates the waterfront with more than 50 fist-bumping clubs. Whether you’re letting your hair down at Waikiki’s or showing the table-dancers in Cocktails & Dreams how it's done, you won’t lack places to party on a Zante clubbing holiday.
As you boogie along the beach, one watering hole you’ll want to make a beeline for is Rescue, Zante’s most popular club. Comprising private cocktail bars and an opulent open-air lounge, this is the place to visit if you’re in search of VIP treatment. You will also find the iconic Cherry Bay Beach Club just a short walk away. Famous for its Full Moon-style get-downs and epic boat parties, guests are often treated to a free bar and exclusive drink packages throughout the night – call it the cherry on top.
Widely known for its laidback vibes, Croatia is an unexpected – but awesome - destination for a party holiday in Europe. With its gorgeous Adriatic coastline and cluster of party islands to the west, you'd be forgiven for thinking Ibiza had taken up a residency in Eastern Europe.
Those seeking laidback drinks on their Croatia party holiday should make their way to the mainland. Dubrovnik’s chilled Banje Beach offers high-end cocktails, which are perfect for sipping with a view of the Adriatic Sea. If you're in the north-west of Croatia, head to Gallery in Zagreb, where aerial performers tumble from the ceiling in time with House music.
As the early hours chime in, you won’t want to miss the after-dark antics on Pag Island. Boasting all-hours discotheques and beach raves, Pag dances to the beat of its own drum. One of Pag’s biggest and best beach parties is at Papaya Club. Voted the sixth best club in the world according to the prestigious British electronic music magazine DJ MAG, Papaya Club is a 32,000 sq-ft stretch of white sand that has seen performances from Calvin Harris, Snoop Dogg and more.
Nestled in the north-east corner of Crete, Malia is Greece’s primary party town. With more than 100 club events and booze cruises to pick from, where will your Malia clubbing holiday begin?
The mantra on these shores is simple: go hard or go home. And nowhere lives up to this more than the clubs along Malia Beach Road. This 6km-long coastline is bursting with crazy clubs and parties: from fire dancers at Coyote Club to Camelot's thrice-weekly ‘wet ‘n wild’ foam parties (don’t forget the waterproof mascara)!
Alternatively, if you prefer your parties foam-free, why not book tickets to Malia Live? This four-part music festival is one of the most anticipated events on the calendar and has hosted some amazing artists, including the likes of Tinie Tempah and Craig David.
Smothered in sunshine and peppered with white sand, Ayia Napa in Cyprus is one of the prettiest clubbing destinations in the world.
As soon as the sun goes down, it's time to grab the neon face paint and follow the bassline along Nissi Avenue. Whether you’re sampling Nissi Beach’s famous foam parties or bouncing to a first-class DJ set along Poseidon Beach, there’s always somewhere to have fun on an Ayia Napa clubbing holiday.
And if the idea of dancing with sand in your shoes unnerves you, you needn't worry – you can take your party to the streets instead. The biggest and best of its kind has to be the Kandi Street Party, where party-goers are given a taste of Ayia Napa Circus Square. Best of all, your ticket entitles you to an open bar all evening. That’s one reason to book an Ayia Napa party holiday!
While Europe is brimming with first-rate party holiday destinations, there are plenty more clubs to discover further afield. From the superclubs of Cancun to the 24-hour bars of Tel Aviv's Lillenblum, there are clubbing holidays for every type of traveller.
If you’re planning on booking a Cancun party holiday, there’s one club which has to feature at the top of your itinerary: Coco Bongo. Along with acrobatic performers, guests are expected to party their way through confetti showers as they ripple through the dancefloor in a wild conga line.
If you’ve ever thought about visiting Israel on a clubbing holiday, look no further than Tel Aviv. Widely known as the party capital of the Middle East, Tel Aviv offers an eclectic mix of electronica gigs, bumping beach parties and chilled gallery bars. One of the most famous underground clubs in the area, The Block, is a honey trap for Tel Aviv's elite. Here you can expect an awesome sound system and international DJ sets.
