A Guide To Your Ibiza Stag Weekend
Let's face it, if you're heading to Ibiza you're going to party. So if you're going, go in style with a Boast Cruise, Drinks & Superclub which starts in the afternoon and heads into an epic night out!
For a group of stag lads (essentially big kids) we definitely recommend hitting the Waterpark which is one of the biggest and best in Europe.
Best Bars in Ibiza
Linekers - 'Legendary' is an over used phrase but this is one bar that really does live up to the hype and no trip to Ibiza is complete without at least one visit.
Café Mambo - THE place to watch the sun go down and start a big evening in real style. Great food, drinks and superb music, plus more than a little eye candy to enjoy.
1805 - With an amazing boho vibe and laid back feel this trendy bar is the complete flipside of Ibiza's loud image. A superb place to hang, mixing French flair with Ibiza's partying lifestyle. Pure class.
May - Medieval Festival. Ibiza town is famed for its big knights!
June - Ibiza Rocks. Some claim this as the biggest dance party on the planet!
June - September - Holi Garden Festival. This massive dance and paint throwing party will take place on 6 weekends between June and September.
August - Fiesta de la Tierra The earth festival brings live entertainment to Ibiza town throughout August.
September - Ibiza Tantra Festival. A chance for the groom to brush up his tantric techniques.
Where to Head...
San Antonio is famed for its beach and bar vibe. Originally a hippy commune it really springs to life in the evenings when it becomes party central and really gives a taste of the Island's fun loving hedonistic vibe.
The oldest settlement, Ibiza Town is the beating heart of the Island. A visit day or night will really tell you all that this stunning island is about. Gentlemen... Prepare to party!
Playa d'en Bossa If it's superclubs you're after then no visit to the island would be complete without a night in Playa d'en Bossa and some of its world famous clubs.
The Beach - It's a bit of a no brainer, if you're heading to Ibiza, hit the sand for a game of beach volleyball, beach football or just somewhere with a sea breeze to rest your weary hangovers.
According to Nostradamus Ibiza will be the only place to survive a nuclear fall-out. Which must be a bit of a choker if you've just bought a time-share in Majorca.
Ibiza has no rivers. Its fresh water comes from a huge river under the sea bed which flows all the way from the Pyrenees Mountains in France.
The Island's name was originally 'Ibossim' named after 'Bes' the Phoenician god of dance and music. It continues to live up to its name!
The entire population of the island is roughly the size of Norwich. "Knowing me Norwich, knowing you Ibiza. Aha!"
A Taste of Ibiza
Tapas is perfect for a group of hungry stags as it offers something for everyone. La Cava not only has fantastic décor and buzzing atmosphere but the food is awesome and very well priced. Well worth a trip. Disco Burger is also well worth a visit, superb food at fantastic prices and a weird but funky 1950's vibe.
If you want a real taste of the sun then Ibosim Beer most certainly hits the spot. Named after Bes the god of music and dancing it is a great drop to get your party started.
"Ha-ha, eat my sleigh-wash, you sawed-off little freaks! I'm going to Ibiza!"
