Some would consider Ibiza a mecca of the world club scene, earning it a spot at the top of this list. The party never ends on this island, making a name for itself as tourists come from all corners of the globe to sleep on the beach, dance to incessant and pulsing house beats, and get a little messy at foam parties that last until dawn.
South Beach, Miami, United States
College students and celebrities alike flock to South Beach for all the partying they could ever hope for – right here in the States. Nikki Beach, an open-air club that transforms from an upscale restaurant to a sizzling dance club once the sun sets, is a must. The partying doesn’t always take place on the beach, per se, but the many clubs in the area are so hot, it’s like you never left the sandy shore.
White Beach, Boracay, Philippines
This beach at Boracay used to be so notorious for wild behavior that its visitors were sworn to secrecy – to keep this gem a private pleasure. Word got out eventually (of course), but the party scene hasn’t been dialed back a single bit. When night falls, this incredible beach comes to life.

With 16 beaches to choose from, there is no end of possibilities to find some fun. If in doubt about where to start, head to Gordon Beach, the middle of all the action.
Nissi Beach, Ayia Napa, Cyprus

Palolem Beach, Goa, India
Every year at least 2 million tourists make their way to Goa for bonfires, raves and spontaneous outdoor DJ sets. If that’s the scene you’re looking for, then take it from us: Palolem Beach will certainly not disappoint. It’s famous for what’s called a “silent noise party,” a unique experience that offers visitors the chance to dance the night away while listening to headphones the entire time. It may sound a little strange, but these silent raves take place multiple times a week. There has to be some reason they’re so popular, so head to Goa and see for yourself.
BEACH: Palolem, GOA
WHERE: Canacona, South Goa, India
WHY: Palolem is one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Goa. It is a natural bay surrounded by lofty headlands on either sides, resulting in a calm, idyllic sea with a gently sloping bed which allows you to walk up to 100 m out from the beach.
Palolem was featured as the Indian residence of Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) in the film The Bourne Supremacy (2004). The initial footage in the movie gives a good idea of the natural beauty of the beach - the distinctive tree covered rocks at one end (known locally as Monkey Island - to which tours are run) and beach shacks.
STAY: The Fern Gardenia Resort, Palolem-Agonda Road, Devabag (2 km from Palolem Beach), email@example.com - advertising itself as eco-sensitive - Rs. 2,800-10,000.
