As much as the island loves the millions of tourists that swarm every year for an escape from reality and a head full of hedonism, sometimes they can be too clueless for their own good.
But that’s OK.
By definition, tourists have no idea what they are dealing with. Ibiza, in particular, is an island with difficult terrain to navigate. Its turf is brimming with foreign pleasures and indulgences.
There is a first time for everything. And first-timers are rarely described as “naturals” with regard to this one-of-a-kind Ibiza lifestyle. After reading this list you can’t say you weren’t informed on how to handle your holiday.
If we catch you doing any one of these (apart from #4 in cases of desperation and #5 in cases of pregnancy), Oceanbeat will come and kick your ass wherever you are!
Club entries bought on the door are often double as expensive as pre-sale. Check out online prices beforehand or just keep your eyes open: you will be sure to see disco ticket sales points every few hundred metres. Club deals flow like water around the island: inform yourself, talk to people and catch those deals!
Just because your local club opens doors at eleven doesn’t mean clubs here do. New place, new rules. Everything starts later here. Dinners often aren’t enjoyed until eleven or twelve at night and clubbing is another story altogether.
Playa d’en Bossa is a trap.
Sure, it boasts a strip of the highest-renowned bars and clubs of the island, but people who go there tend to overlook Ibiza’s organic beauty. That’s right, I’m talking about nature.
While it may sound tempting to crawl out of your hotel room and straight onto the nearest stretch of sand when morning rolls around, it’s worth doing a bit of research as to WHERE you sunburn your ass and sleep off the amnesia. Beaches in Ibiza are like candy in a candy store. Don’t be that one who tries just one. If you don’t want to spend money on transport, you can head to Talamanca Beach in Ibiza Town. Near San Antonio Bay sit a host of pretty little coves: Cala Comte, Cala Tarida, Cala Bassa.
While it may not seem so relevant at home, in Ibiza it is compulsory to be aware of the distinction between the VENUE e.g. Amnesia, and the PARTY e.g. elrow. The club remains the same all week round, but each night of the week the PARTY transports you from realm to realm. For example, Sundays you have a hip-hop foam-fest ESPUMA in Amnesia; Wednesdays you are exposed to the reggaetón world of MAMACITA at the same club.
Choose which club you go to wisely but choose the party even MORE WISELY! If you catch Hi on the wrong day, you might be expecting David Guetta (Fridays) but you get a hard hammering of techno instead. That’s Afterlife (Thursdays), for all of you techno lovers. Go get it.
There are countless opportunities to pre-party for prices that won’t leave you feeling robbed. We offer a pre-party PREMIUM OPEN BAR at TANTRA IBIZA every night.
The sky is your limit. Drink here and show us what you’re made of! Gin tonic fizz; the grenadine stain in a Tequila Sunrise; ice-cold malibu; Bacardi rum fresh in a frosty coca-cola.
When life gives you lemons and we give you all-inclusive drinks… call or text our hotline 0034628944809 for more information (AND a drink recommendation).
They say you haven’t been to Ibiza if you haven’t done a boat party.
We don’t know who “they” are but we think there is some sense to what THEY are saying. After all, Ibiza is an island: not just the metallic, inky fathoms of night-clubs. What better way to pay your respects to the pristinely rugged-blue shallows around the island than to hop on a boat and sail away into a sangria-filled place of pleasure?
A boat party is the ultimate way to combine the fervor of the clubbing experience with the beauty of the Balearic coastline. I don’t wanna hear how much your VIP table at Hi Fuck me I’m Famous cost last night because this view is 100 times that. Au naturel.
Plus you actually get to DIVE into this view. I wonder how many security guards you’d have on you if you dive into David Guetta’s lap.
If you don’t believe me, see it for yourself.
