Buck’s Party in Ibiza

Drinking at rooftop with friends

If DJ’s are your thing, Ibiza’s party scene is legendary. People-watching, day-drinking and beach-hopping take up the daylight hours. Or, try parasailing, jet skiing and boating around the coast. As dusk falls, the party island is already pumping, at clubs, bars and restaurants in Ibiza Town, Playa d’en Bossa and San Antonio. For drinking games right on the sand, table dancing and a ready-made party to join, don’t miss a visit to Bora-Bora Beach Club.

Buck’s Party in Bali

Seminyak beach, Kuta, Bali

Kuta is Bali’s party town, so if you’re ready for sun, shots and shenanigans, it’s the spot for you. Spend your days drinking Bintang on the beach, hitting the surf and having a laugh with the fun-loving locals. Watch the sun set in a blaze of orange over the ocean, and get your drinking hat on. No matter what time of year it is, or which night of the week, the party’s always started. Pub crawl on Benesari Street, people-watch on Kuta Beach Road and hit the clubs on Legian Street. To party like there’s no tomorrow, spend a night at the Bounty Discotheque.
