Here are some of the best summer events and parties happening in Ibiza, Marbella and Mallorca this July through August for you to choose from!
The Party Scene in Ibiza Goes on and on
This island of Ibiza is globally known as the party capital for many years and it hasn’t stopped partying ever since the first clubbers and sun-worshippers have settled on the island. Established clubs and bars on the coast which started small are now bigger and more popular than ever and more luxury boutique shops and gastronomic restaurants offer the best shopping and dining experience.
One of the first ever clubs that have been a shrine for international DJS to visit annually is the Pacha Club, and we do recommend coming over to this establishment and get a taste of what world-class clubbing is all about.
BBC Radio 1 Weekend hosts a lot of concerts and parties every night on the island and this summer, they will be starting off on the 4th of August at the island’s newest super club Hï Ibiza and will also be doing some sunset DJ sessions at the Café Mambo where everyone can throb to the beat of excellent music while marveling at one of the world’s most famous sunsets in Ibiza.
For art lovers, a visit to the MACE (Contemporary Museum of Ibiza) is a lovely way to spend your time on the island after you find your way through the maze of white-washed houses with blue window shutters. Lots of boutiques and shops can be found along the little winding paths and we recommend stopping by White Ibiza and do a combination of shopping and dining at Sa Punta Ibiza.
This modern and contemporary villa in Ibiza is a favorite among property buyers looking for a top location for their property investment in the island. Price can be disclosed upon demand.
After partying, shopping and dining in Ibiza, make sure you get some good relaxation time in a nice villa or hotel on the island. Better yet, buying your own villa on the island is a good choice, with this modern villa (photo above) hot on the market now for sale for you to view.
Lounging and Dining on the Golden Sandy Beaches of Marbella
Blessed with a coastline of 27 kilometers with 24 golden sandy beaches, Marbella is truly heaven for visitors. With beach side bars called chiringuitos dotting the coastline, you will never go hungry as you get served all day and night as you lounge on your sunbed. Try the Costa del Sol’s favorite summer dish called Espetos which is best served with some fresh salad, bread and olive oil with a glass of chilled Sangria.
El Canarias Playa Beach Bar in Torremolinos is a favorite among the locals and has won first place in a recent competition for its perfectly grilled Espetos and we do recommend passing by this place as you walk along the beach coast. Another contender offering the best Espetos is the El Madero Beach Bar in Estepona which is also popular among the locals.
Plaza de los Naranjos, one of the biggest squares in town is not to be missed and you can view and listen to live music or choir concerts in this area. A superb music and arts festival that is happening now until August is the Starlite Festival happening in a natural Amphitheatre located in Nagüeles and brings together international artists such as Ben Harper (performing on August 18) and Manuel Carrasco (performing on August 18) on centerstage along with other top world-famous DJs that include Juan Magan and many more.
For the latest dining hotspots in Marbella, check out El Chiringuito Marbella which recently opened on the Golden Mile and is the sister restaurant to the legendary Ibiza restaurant. The inviting Mediterranean restaurant offers amazing food and a beach club atmosphere perfect for all!
Another hip place is The Monkey Club located in one of Puente Romano’s social terraces. Al fresco dining is one of the highlights here with gastronomic fare prepared by top chefs coming from Marbella’s well-known Casamono restaurant team. Nobu Restaurant and Lounge has also landed on the shores of Marbella and this summer, you can get their signature Japanese dishes and some dishes fused with Peruvian flavors, concocted by Exceutive Chef Eleni Manousou.
Marbella also boasts of top luxury accommodations and properties and the areas that we recommend when buying or renting a villa include the Golden Mile, Nueva Andalucia, Puerto Banus, Guadalmina Baja and Sierra Blanca.
