Top 5 Party Destinations
We bring you the list of the best clubbing destination in the world, which includes Croatia, as well as the reasons why they have become the unavoidable spots for electronic music lovers
Croatia – on the Global Festivals Panorama
A hi-tech camp and a state-of-the-art loudspeaker system have turned the abandoned fortress Punta Christo in Pula into a location where the famous Outlook and Dimensions Festivals take place. Tisno, a family resort, is home to seven world-famous boutique festivals on three stages, as well as to a lively club Barbarella, with a dance floor offering spectacular views of the stars. Zrće is the absolute ‘it’ destination with its four super-clubs: Aquarius, Papaya, Kalypso and Noa, the so-called ‘clubbing Hydras.’ Ultra-Europe coming to Split, as well as the opening of Central Club, complements the coastal clubbing destinations perfectly. There is also Dubrovnik and its clubbing scene within the Old City walls, with clubs such as Revelin and Lazareti; and we mustn’t forget the Croatian St. Tropez – the Island of Hvar – partying all day long at Carpe Diem, Laganini Bar, Hula Hula Beach Club and Pink Champagne.
Florianopolis – Brazilian Clubbing Oasis
Florianopolis is the ultimate clubbing and non-stop-party destination. This island, located half-way between Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires was chosen as the party destination of the year in 2009 by the New York Times. It’s also known as the surfing city, but, unlike many other typical surfing destinations, it boasts a booming night life. According to online guides, the ideal time to visit Florianopolis is between September and April. This is a period when both clubs with a capacity of 10,000 and smaller clubs on the outskirts play dance music that will fit everyone’s tastes. If you visit Florianopolis, make sure to stop by Warung Beach Club, Green Valley, D-Edge, P12, Pacha, Barraca Do Mole and Sounds in Da City.

Miami – Frontrunner in American Clubbing

The city becomes the centre of new music, technology and trends. During the afternoon, dancing and relaxing become the most important events with hotel chains organising pool and beach parties. Miami Music Week plays an important role in the process, because it offers parties at exclusive clubs with famous DJs playing throughout the night. The ultimate clubbing experience, happening in the last weekend of March, is the Ultra Music Festival. These March events in Miami attract around 400,000 visitors looking for a good time.
