2 Min Read

Has it been another tedious year of sitting in the library staring wistfully into the distance, picturing a long, hot, exam-free summer with your best pals? Don’t let your holiday pass you by this year with only a half-baked tan to show for it – get everyone together for an island getaway to remember forever, complete with beaches, beverages and boogieing!

The Mediterranean is home to an incredible selection of party destinations, and with its naturally beautiful weather you’re most definitely in for a treat. We’ve picked the crème de la crème of Europe’s top clubbing destinations to get you excited for a summer of fun! So, whether you’re into mad all-night dancing sessions, chilled evenings watching the sunset, or a mix of the two, these islands have got the break for you.


Need we say more? The top European party island getaway has it all – and what’s more, the party never stops! Ibiza has famously hosted some of the world’s best DJ’s at its enormous ‘super clubs’, and if crazy nights sampling the finest electronic music and exploring mansion-sized clubs is your jam, San Antonio is the scene for you. The busiest and largest clubbing town in Ibiza, San Antonio offers an impressive selection of clubs and pre-club bars where you can expect great drink deals and even better accommodation prices. It’s the cheapest area to stay in on the island, so if you’re looking for a fun, yet affordable island getaway, this is it! If you fancy a more sophisticated drinking experience, Ibiza Town has a more cosmopolitan vibe, with plenty of classy bars and clubs.

Ayia Napa

This stunning resort in Cyprus offers the perfect island getaway to suit any musical taste within your group. Once the stage for the UK’s developing garage scene, you can now enjoy cheesy 80’s music, 70’s disco, R&B and anything in between. In fact, there are over 250 bars and clubs from which to choose, so whatever your vibe, Ayia Napa can cater for it. Drinks in this party town are wonderfully cheap and you can often blag good deals from promoters, so get those haggling skills honed! Bring your waterproofs as this resort is also known for its insane foam parties.


Unlike Ibiza where it’s possible to escape the crazy party scene and opt for a more sophisticated evening, Kavos is unrelentingly wild after the sun goes down. The vibrant main strip offers a club or bar for any mood, and as it attracts hundreds of people it’s virtually impossible to resist letting your hair down and soaking up the lively atmosphere. The beauty of Kavos is its host of glorious beaches for the flopping-on-the-sand days, so you can recover and re-energise for the electric night ahead.

Whether it’s immersing yourself in the incredible Ibiza club scene, sipping some ice-cold cocktails in Ayia Napa, or recuperating on the white sandy beaches of Kavos, your summer is not complete without a party-filled island getaway to treat yourself after a long year of studying. Get on it!
