World's Craziest Party Towns

The Scene: More “party isle” than just “party town,” Ibiza entertains a global crowd of revelers who romp in three villages: Ibiza Town, San Antonio, and San Rafael—a tradition that started in 1973 with the debut of the island’s first (and perennially popular) club, Pacha, in Ibiza Town.
Hot Spots: Spain’s manic party-till-dawn mantra is especially evident at the largest club in the world, the seven-story-tall Privilege (in San Rafael), which can accommodate some 10,000 celebrants and has an open, 65-foot-wide geodesic dome and a stable of DJs who spin while suspended over a dance-floor swimming pool. One mile away at Amnesia, partiers kick up their heels at the regular Fiesta de la Espuma, or Foam Festival.
Tip: Wear a swimsuit at Ibiza’s effervescent foam parties—the suds can get five-feet deep (and stain your clothes).
