Beached beats

Glitzy, glam and everything you’ve ever heard about Ibiza’s VIP scene and more, the original Blue Marlin Ibiza – located on the pebbly shores of south coast hotspot Cala Jondal – is the undisputed king of Ibiza’s beach club scene.

Being one of the most fashionable and entertaining beach lounge clubs in the world, it’s always worth arriving early to make the most of the day-to-night, open-air experience at Blue Marlin. With beats floating over the airwaves by day, toes start tapping on sunbeds and the beach before the restaurant even opens its chic terrace for lunch.

As the day gets hotter, the music gets louder and the party vibe on the terrace heats up, requiring soft sprinklers of water to cool down the crowds around the edges! Slowly but surely, the first dancers creep in front of the booth and before you know it, the party has started. Around sunset is prime time at Blue Marlin, a veritable fashion show with the who’s who of Ibiza and the international jetset strutting their stuff on the terrace.

Increasingly becoming known as house music party destination, day clubbers can see some of the world’s best DJs – think Pete Tong, Dennis Ferrer, Skream plus local faves like Jean Claude Ades, Eli Rojas, Tom Crane and Andy Baxter – among others gracing the decks throughout summer. After dancing all day, head indoors to the soundproofed mini-club where the party continues until dawn, leaving you just enough time to catch a wink of sleep before doing it all over again…
