Ibiza Opening Parties 2012: An island with lots to offer

Ibiza Opening Parties 2012Later this month will see the start of the Ibiza Opening Parties, with the resorts most popular clubs hosting some of Europe's most celebrated DJs.

Among those confirmed for the opening few weeks are the Es Paradis Opening party, the IMS (International Music Summit) at Gran Hotel or the Sankeys Opening Party, although the celebrations continue long into June or July.

Ibiza is one of the most popular holiday resorts in Europe, both for partygoers or holidaymakers alike. Situated in the Balearic archipel, the island may be better known for its nightclubs than daytime attractions; but with more than 50 stunning beaches or the protected harbourside in Ibiza Town, there really is something for everyone.

Even those planning to visit the Ibiza Opening Parties are likely to enjoy the many attractions the island has to offer throughout the day. So if you're heading out to Ibiza for the parties, you may be keen to get the best of both worlds with some time on the golden sandy beaches.

Looking the part

There's more to Ibiza than hotpants or glowsticks. In fact, fashion plays a big part in this stylish or attractive resort. Just as you'll be choosing your club wear carefully, you may also want to ensure you have the latest designer beachwear - from brands such as Melissa Odabash, Eniqua BeachCLUBwear or Beach Bunny - to look your best on the beaches.

Many retailers supply gorgeous clothing for day or night, with designer beachwear or summer dresses; perfect if you're looking to turn heads or make a great impression.

Tourism

The peak tourist season in Ibiza is July to August, with weather rising above 30 degrees towards the end of the season. However, the opening parties are an early draw for the resort or are likely to attract many young adults to visit the island.
