After the party has ended on the French Riviera for another year, attention turns to Ibiza, where the still-warm weather and spectacular closing parties make for an epic end to the Mediterranean yachting season. A late season yacht charter in Ibiza promises stunning cruising and superstar DJs, while the best after-party in town is back on your boat with an Ibiza yacht party.

Ibiza in late summer and early fall is a cruising dream, with warm clear seas and sunny skies stretching right into October. While around the rest of the Med the beach clubs are shuttering up and the nightlife is slowing down, the party keeps going in the White Isle, where you can spend lazy days swimming off the yacht and relaxing on a deckchair at glamorous all-white beach clubs like Cotton Club, before heading to one of Ibiza’s mega-clubs for a memorable night orchestrated by DJ royalty. 

Yacht Party Heaven

When it’s time to move on from the club, there’s no better place for an intimate after-party than back at your charter yacht, where the Jacuzzi bubbles on the sundeck under the stars, and you dance on deck as the pale dawn creeps across the sky. Yacht parties are the most sought-after invite in town.

Even better, when you finally collapse into the huge, soft bed in your luxurious stateroom, you’ll wake up to find the captain has moved the yacht to a beautiful beach on nearby Formentera, a tiny blissful island of sugar-white sands, rolling dunes and pine trees. Cure any sore heads from the night before with Bloody Marys and a fabulous brunch on deck, before diving off the swim platform into the crystal clear sea. 

Back on Ibiza, day spas, luxury boutiques and Michelin-star restaurants await; once a package-destination island, the White Isle has gone seriously upscale in recent years and is the perfect backdrop for a superyacht vacation. Speaking of backdrops, it’s hard to find a prettier one than here in Ibiza, whether you’re cruising along the coast with its turquoise, rocky coves and whitewashed villages, or heading inland to explore the rolling hills of olive groves and forest. 

Ibiza Clubs

As the sun gets low in the sky, it’s time to get the party started again. Where will it be tonight? Maybe kick things off at the Sunset Strip at San Antonia, drinking cocktails to DJ beats at Café del Mar or Café Mambo, before heading for dinner and on to one of Ibiza’s biggest clubs – whether Ushuaia, Pacha, DC10, or Hi Ibiza. Late season charterers will want to plan their trip around the clubs’ infamous closing parties, which stretch from late September into the first week of October. And when the night is done, it’s back to your yacht for another post-clubbing party.

End the yachting season with a bang in Ibiza. Let the champagne flow and the music start thumping with an Ibiza yacht party you’ll never forget.
