Hyperbole is often thrown about like sand in Ibiza but there’s not a hint of exaggeration when we say that Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Club changed the face of Ibiza clubbing. One of the defining beach clubs in the island’s history, or any club for that matter, this venue became the blueprint for daytime partying on the white isle when it launched in 2011, and it’s been leading the pack musically and atmospherically ever since. Every party here feels a bit like a festival, except one that takes place every single day of the week, making it an alfresco experience that no visitor to the island should miss.
Located in Playa d’en Bossa, the Ibiza clubbing hub of the island, Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Club has a unique beachfront setting, offering luxury accommodation, multiple restaurants to relax and dine at, and of course, one of the most famous dance floors on the island. The majority of parties take place in front of the venue’s incredible outdoor stage between the hours of 5pm and 11pm. Now legendary for its off-the-chart production, shows feature lasers, fire machines, acrobatics and a whole host of other gadgets and gimmicks designed to blow your tiny clubbing minds.
There’s also a picture-perfect swimming pool to dance around, and of course, a dedicated VIP area — Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Club was one of the very first venues to usher in exclusive access for VIPs, so as long as you’re happy to carry the price tag, champagne flows freely. We recommend getting there early, because although the party vibe ramps once the sun has set, this is one of the only places on the island to see huge, international DJs perform during the daytime, and that’s an Ibiza clubbing moment that everyone should experience.
Anyone still on the fence — and it’s unlikely at this point — will be certified evangelists as soon as they lay eyes on the Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Club line-ups. In no particular order, this summer the Playa d’en Bossa venue is home to superstar names including Calvin Harris, Martin Garrix, David Guetta, Camelphat, Hardwell and more. So if you like your tunes with an EDM slant, this is the Ibiza clubbing venue for you. Anyone more inclined to techno should check out ANTS, the super successful Saturday party headed up by Andrea Oliva, Fisher, wAFF and Nic Fanciulli.
It’s worth including a footnote about Ushuaïa Ibiza Beach Club’s opening and closing parties, which usually take place alongside sister venue, HÏ Ibiza, located across the road, and run in marathon 24-hour stints. Ibiza clubbing at its finest.
