The Biggest Beach Parties in the World

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Sun sand and good times – there’s nothing like a great beach party. Here’s your guide to the best In the world.


Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Rio has a vibe in a league of its own, with the legendary party scene on the Copacabana Beach a major tourist draw card. As a way to ring in the new year, Copacabana’s million strong beach party makes it one of the ultimate destinations in the world. The balmy January climate means swimwear is the outfit du jour, and icy cocktails are essential to keep cool. Locals and tourists mingle on the golden sands, and the atmosphere pumps day and night.


Goa, India

A Portugese colony until 1961, Goa’s culture retains a relaxed and laid back feel. The region is a popular holiday destination for western tourists, and is packed with lively nightclubs and bars. While a far cry from the crowds of Rio, Goa’s beach parties first gained notoriety in the sixties, with hippie travellers revelling in the freedom the area offered. These days their legacy lives on in sunset trance parties and psychedelic music. Anjuna beach in North Goa is an ideal location to experience the best of a bygone era.


Ibiza, Spain

This Mediterranean island has lengthy reputation as a party island, attracting northern Europeans in search of the sun. While it attracts partiers year round, it’s in the summer months that Ibiza really comes into its own, with the island’s population swelling to accommodate over 2 million visitors throughout the season. Nightly parties with drummers, fire twirlers and bonfires attract crowds and the pounding beat of music gets everyone in the mood for dancing until dawn.


KohPhangan, Thailand

Thailand either conjures images of temples, rainforests and spectacular scenery for a relaxing getaway, or the infamous Full Moon Party. A hedonistic mecca, Full Moon parties take place, as the name suggests, on the eve of every full moon, meaning that visitors who wish to take part in this experience aren’t locked into one date a year. Crowds of between 20 -30 000 people are attracted to each party, with drugs and alcohol a drawcard to the predominately youthful clientele.


Cancun, Mexico

This fantastic location has it all: gorgeous beaches, plentiful crowds, and a phenomenal atmosphere. If a truly electric feel is what you’re after, Cancun during the American Spring Break is the place to be. The already busy tourist town is full to the brim with partiers, and beachside concerts and events mean you’ll never be short of something to do.
