The Best Party Destinations in Europe
Europe is full of amazing cities, resorts, and towns, all with plenty of culture to give each place an identity all of its own. Despite that, there are also fantastic cities, resorts and towns where partying with a capital P is the name of the game! Many Club 18-30 destinations sit firmly on European soil, and it’s often hard to whittle it down to which one you’ll visit.
Every major capital city has its nightlife, and a lot of the time this is vibrant, varied and seriously loud, but the good thing is that whilst nightlife has a right to be raucous, most cities also have a quieter side, meaning there is something to suit everyone.
Let’s look at five of the top party destinations on the continent – be prepared to wave your glow sticks and dance ‘til dawn!
No list of party destinations would be complete without a mention of the White Isle. Throughout the summer months, party-addicted people head to this Mediterranean island, with one thing on their mind – party! Super-clubs such as Space, Pasha, Eden … the list goes on, and most are centred mainly in San Antonio. You can get the party bus to take you there and back again, and you can sit and chill out at one of the sunset viewing bars before you head on out. For superstar DJs, this is your destination.
This might sound like an odd one, but the city famous for tulips, canals and, erm, space cakes, is actually a clubbing dream. The home of famous DJs such as Tiesto, Amsterdam is full of bright and wild clubs and bars. You’ll find every kind of music on the scene, including techno, hip-hop and pop. On top of this, the city is a fantastic place to visit too!
Whether you class this as Europe or not is debatable, but I do, so I’m including it. Marmaris is fast becoming one of the must-visit summer destinations, and to say the nightlife is seriously happening is an understatement. Long Beach and then Bar Street should be your destination, with after-parties and foam parties to throw into the mix. Oh, and it’s very sunny in the day time too!
This sun-drenched Greek island is seriously wild in terms of partying, and you won’t find many people on the beaches first thing in the morning, because they’re all recovering until mid-afternoon from the night before! Very liberal and borderline wild, Mykonos’ beach parties are legendary, and Paradise Beach is a must visit.
Ayia Napa, Cyprus
Second only to Ibiza, Ayia Napa is a resort on the far-eastern end of south Cyprus, and its beauty is often overlooked, basically because everyone is too hungover to appreciate it. You’ll find many a Club 18-30 hotel here, giving you respite from the partying, but if that’s what you’re wanting, then you’re perfectly placed! Very wild, very tiring, but in terms of nightlife, you’ll struggle to find better.
A holiday to any of these places will probably leave you needing another holiday to recover, but as far as crazy memories are concerned, they’ll stay with you forever.
