Whether you’re heading out to Ibiza to lap up the lushness of Party in the Pool from Blue Inc, San Anfoamio at Splash Mountain or the Ibiza Live Boat Party, partying with precaution is essential to dodging avoidable accidents on holiday, in the party capital of Europe.
Staying safe in Ibiza
One of the best ways to reduce the risk of holiday-related injury is to visit outside of August. This is the busiest month in San Antonio, Ibiza, when temperatures and tourist numbers reach their heights.
June, July and September still offer a sensational party ambience, without the hectic hustle and bustle of the eighth month. When you do reach the isle, stay clear of unruly throngs of clubbers, within which crime and holiday accidents are more prevalent.
Surviving the nightlife
It’s inevitable that you will be making the most of the nightlife during your Ibiza holiday. Remember to rest up during the day, stay hydrated and eat well.
At night, stay in well-lit areas; bars are open all day, however, clubs generally do not open until midnight. Queues for Space, Amnesia and Eden can be huge. Avoid lengthy waits by heading over to your establishment of choice by 01:30hrs.
Don’t do drugs
Although possessing drugs for personal use is not illegal in Spain, they are a leading cause of holiday-related accidents and illness.
Consider the terms of your insurance policy and the dangers and implications involved with such activities. It is wise to give drugs of any kind a wide berth. In many cases potential holiday accidents and injury will not be covered if you are found to have drugs in your system.
The legal age for drinking in Ibiza is now 18.
