Ibiza Virgin's Guide to: Clubbing over Easter

Before the summer season gets underway, we get a get a preview over an extended public holiday.

Our Ibiza Virgins' Guide series is typically aimed at island first-timers and the younger generation who have only just started dipping their toes into everything on offer here. Okay, so you consider yourself an Ibiza veteran, but have you ever visited outside of tourist season?

Maybe you've considered it, but never taken the plunge? But now you should, as out-of-season travel has never been as popular or as easy. Prices for flights and hotels are cheaper, and occupancy rates are low.

Oh, and when it comes to Easter, not only do we get three days of public holidays but we also get the first big parties of the year. Next stop: summer!

While not every Ibiza club has plans to open over this period, it's still a fantastic time to visit for a dance and experience the island in a new light. We'll start by looking at the parties themselves.

Maundy Thursday 28 mARCH

Sven Väth's The Year of the Dragon - Ibiza Easter Edition | Las Dalias | San Carlos

Last year, we started the extended weekend in the company of Sven Väth - and this Easter we get to do it again! You don't want to miss out on this. The Ibiza stop of his The Year of the Dragon World Tour at Las Dalias will sell out. You're going to want to be a part of this.

Join the island's clubbing community for a day and night of Techno bliss, by heading below and sorting your ticket pronto. Will there still be tickets available at the door? Nuh-uh.


TRIP | Club Chinois

TRIP Pt. I | Club Chinois | Ibiza Marina

Straight off the bat, head promoter Johannes Goller has secured a big name for part one of a TRIP double-header. Headlining Club Chinois on the night of Maundy Thursday is vinyl-spinning Seth Troxler. The other names on the bill are S.D.B., Eclud and Acida.


BOHO Experience | Club Chinois by Mario Pinta


Beyond BOHO: The Awakening | Club Chinois | Ibiza Marina

BOHO Experience and its cordial proprietor, Camilo Franco, have another summer of moonlit dinners lined up at Beachouse. But before that gets underway, we get to go a bit deeper and a bit darker on the dancefloor of Club Chinois.

Beyond BOHO is the late-night adventure, bound by sartorial elegance and imaginative soundscapes. Pole Position, Yazay and more join Camilo and Nadja.


Less Fear More Love opening party | Eden | San Antonio

After several dates in the build-up to Christmas, DJ Policy (above) and friends are back for a new season of altruistic party endeavour Less Fear More Love. Handily, the opening party falls over Easter, so everyone at Eden will be bursting with optimism and energy.

Expect the best in Afro House and Amapiano, supplied by Policy, Ayrton Da Silva and Drix.


TRIP | Club Chinois by Fernando V

Saturday 30 March

TRIP Pt. II | Club Chinois | Ibiza Marina

Just in case you didn't get your TRIP fill on Thursday (or even if you did!), the party is back for a second round of underground music on Saturday. Club Chinois opens its doors for the third consecutive night to facilitate decadent dancing until late.

Part two is headlined by last year's monthly resident Dan Ghenacia (above) from Apollonia. Arapu, Cesar Vinzent and Isbel complete the bill for a night of smoky grooves.


Akasha | Las Dalias | San Carlos (near Santa Eulalia)

In a world full of hyperbole, the phrase "legendary DJ" is used recklessly. But when it comes to hippy-spirited Acid Pauli, that tag is more than justified. At Easter, he's back at Akasha for another dreamy session. His style of play is psychedelic, adventurous and full of musicality.

Igor Marijuan joins him for what's set to be an enchanting night on one of Ibiza's most sacred dancefloors.


Touché Ibiza | Eden | San Antonio

Joseda Leonardo, Gianni Blanda, Kolombus, Tony Castello, Salva Martin and Guirao present a night of Latin-infused Tech beats to Eden for Touché Ibiza.


La Troya | Club Chinois

Easter Sunday 31 March

La Troya | Club Chinois | Ibiza Marina

The fabulous Baby Marcelo and their troupe of performers are back on Easter Sunday, as La Troya returns to Club Chinois. Outrageous costumes and displays which could make the most devout conservatives blush, but all in good fun and with a killer soundtrack to boot.

What a way to end the weekend.


Utopia Ball Reloaded | Eden | San Antonio

Thailand's biggest ambassador for Techno, Nakadia, is coming back to Ibiza on Easter Sunday. She is the headline act for Utopia Ball at Eden, playing alongside Gaya Brisa, Defex, Anaïs Tsakonis and Ezme. This is a kink/fetish party, with a strict dress code. Latex, leather, experimentation and open-mindedness are all huge elements of this concept.


Ethereal | Akasha | Las Dalias

Ethereal | Las Dalias | San Carlos

Taking over Easter Sunday at Las Dalias from midday until late, is Vito Masci and his Art Lab festival Ethereal.

Outside will feature Ethereal's live band project Soul Doctor, as well as sets from Iban Mendoza and Medusa Odyssey. Children are welcome when attending with accompanying adults. Later, we move inside to Akasha, which becomes adult-only and notches up the tempo.



Some good news, compared to our guide to clubbing at New Year, is that the airlines are targeting budget travellers and have started to operate direct routes that don't necessarily fly in winter. Largely speaking, that means less need to transfer via a mainland airport.

You still won't get the wealth of choice you do from May to October, but we're confident you will find a bargain. or Google Flights are the best online tools to play around with and find the flights that suit you.

You shouldn't dismiss alternative modes of transport either. For many, coming by ferry is one of the most romantic ways to arrive - and more environmentally friendly. Imagine docking at Ibiza Port just as the sun is rising. It's magical.

There are daily sailings to/from Barcelona, Valencia and Denía on the mainland, serviced by Baleària, Trasmapi and GNV. Visit for info and to book.


While you might instinctively go to search for Playa d'en Bossa as you do for your summer visits, we'll stop you right there. Bossa is a summer-only resort. In fact, anybody who's driven through it as late as mid-May will tell you, it's still only slowly waking up by that point.

San Antonio will be on the quieter side, but has a general population and will be showing the early signs of businesses getting ready for summer. That said, you might feel like it's still too quiet, in which case Ibiza Town or Santa Eulalia might be more attractive propositions.

We've picked out a selection of top-drawer accommodation options for hotels opening this spring.

For a full list of hotels which are open during the off-season, please visit this page.

Where to eat

While not every restaurant on the island will be open for business at this time of year, thankfully many will be. You certainly won't be hard-pressed for choice.

Get yourself to the beach, breathe in that Mediterranean air and marvel at the view, as you tuck into something delicious. There are some sublime beach restaurants to choose from.

In addition, all the little spots favoured by residents, such as Bar Anita, Can Tixedó, Rita's Cantina, Madagascar café and Croissant Show will be open for trade as usual.

You can find more all-year-round restaurant recommendations on this page.

Other activities

Melon Bomb begin their series of beachside shindigs at Tanit Beach Club opening party on Good Friday. Feel-good vibes and feel-good tunes on the sands of Playa d'en Bossa - what's not to love? These free parties are always heavily attended, so booking is recommended.

You can find more information here.

The Sunset Strip is unlikely to be open at this time of year, but the doors of old favourite Golden Buddha remain constantly open at Caló des Moro. Further up the coast at Cap Negret, Hostal La Torre is also open with daily sunset DJ sessions. Booking is strongly advised.

You can also catch regular DJ sets at Malanga Café and at The Standard's ground-level Jara bar and restaurant in Ibiza Town.

Foodies should get involved with the final day of the month-long Pintxa Food Festival in San Antonio on 28 March. Imagine a bar crawl, but instead of sinking beer and shots, you grab tapas and little plates of food. Sounds good, right?

Looking instead for something to burn calories rather than pile them on?

Annual cycling event Vuelta a Ibiza MTB Scott by Shimano takes place across the entire Easter weekend. Alternatively, anybody who fancies themselves as a bit of a runner can get involved with Cursa Patrimoni Eivissa on 30 March in Ibiza's Old Town.

Do you own a yacht or do you just like looking at them? The Ruta de la Sal regatta is also this weekend.

If you'd like to learn more about what's going on, check out our things to do in March feature or visit our events calendar.

What to expect from the weather

You might get full days of sunshine at Easter, but then again the weather is still a little unpredictable at this time of year.

Spring weather is liable to change, so please pack for sunny days and rain. We get April showers here too! In fact, we've had a very dry winter generally. The island is crying out for rainfall and everybody here would really love some to arrive before summer starts.

Warm clothing for the evening is also essential, as you will notice a shift in temperature once the sun goes down. Assuming the sun is out, it will feel nice and warm during the day with the chance for sunbathing also realistic.

Get to the beach or get out on a hike. You might as well make the most of it whilst the tourist numbers are low, car parks are empty and beaches have space. You can find more info on the weather for March and April by clicking on the links.

How does that all sound? Just thinking about it puts us in the mood for summer - more so once we hit the dancefloor. Wherever you're planning on spending Easter, enjoy any days off and time with family you might have.

We look forward to welcoming you to Ibiza this summer, if not sooner.
