What are clubbing holidays?
Clubbing holidays are all about having fun! The main activity is enjoying the nightlife, clubs, bars, casinos, parties and dancing; usually with a spot of sun worship and perhaps a few daytime thrill activities thrown in.
Dance and music feature big time and cover a huge range of styles from dance and trance, funky house, heavy metal, garage and grime, through to hip hop, salsa and dubstep.
The top clubbing holiday destinations
UK clubbers head for Southern Europe and the Med, with the top spots being:
• Ibiza, in the Spanish Balearic Islands, often referred to as the party and clubbing capital of the world and attracting the very best DJs and big crowds.
• Benidorm, in Alicante, Spain, and good for a cheap clubbing holiday. The excellent clubs attract some of the biggest names in DJing.
• Ayia Napa, in Southern Cyprus is another up-and-coming party centre; a clubbers paradise offering a great mix of people and very popular with Brits, Scandinavians and Israelis.
• Kardamena, on the Greek island of Kos, while not attracting the very top DJs, is a good choice for slightly older clubbers.
• Kavos, on Corfu, is another of Greece's well known party islands and is very popular with young Brits in the 18 to 30 age bracket. The resort boasts a huge choice in bars and nightclubs as well many tavernas serving reassuringly British pub style menus.
• Faliraki, on Rhodes, has a reputation
for being one of the top Mediterranean spots for night life, plus great beaches to recover on during the day!
• Mykonos, another of the Greek islands, here Paradise Beach hosts 24hr parties aimed at a mixed gay/straight crowd and there are beach parties almost every night in high season.
• Magaluf, well known for The Strip and world famous clubs like MCP and BCM Planet Dance, some of the the biggest in Europe, Magaluf is a number one destination for the British; Majorca (or even Mallorca) at it's party hottest.
• Playa de las Americas, in Tenerife, Canary Islands. Can be pricey but with internationally known DJs and top tunes in the bars as well as the clubs, its worth it! The best late night clubbing is on the Veronicas Strip, with The Patch and Starcos good earlier on.
• UK destinations, if you can't get away to the Med, or just fancy a more local clubbing weekend in the UK you'll find a few ideas on the right.
USA, Mexico etc...
• Miami, Florida is one of the best US clubbing spots with music for every taste. The large Latino population means that Latin-style is popular.
• Los Angeles offers the chance to party with the stars on Sunset Strip, it's known for its beautiful people and celebs, and offers some extraordinary and very unique clubs.
• Las Vegas, one of the main draws of 'Sin City' is its nightlife, Vegas has it all and it's 24-7; endless casinos, brilliant bars, pool parties like Wet Republic at the MGM Grand, and mega clubs like Pure, XS and Tao; this really is one hot party city!
• Cancun in Mexico, is top choice if you're looking for top clubbing with winter sunshine thrown in. Cancun is loved by the Americans and Canadians, but these days more Brits are heading there too.
Travel-Quest top tips for clubbing holidays
