After a gorgeous revamp, we reckon it’ll be the place to be as Ibiza starts warming up for a season of pure madness.

Back with a bang for their 10th anniversary, we’ve got a feeling O Beach Ibiza will be going harder than ever this year. With a new sunset roof garden in a lush environment and tunes banging from 1-10 pm, O Beach’s opening party is a cracking way to relax and get into the holiday spirit. No artists have been confirmed just yet but the organisers have promised “a phenomenal lineup of entertainment”. With a decade of experience, we trust them to deliver the goods.
