Balearic beat, better known as Balearic house, Ibiza house, Ibizan chillout or just Balearic is an eclectic DJ blend dance music emerging mid-1980s. It later became the name of a more specific style of electronic dance music that was popular into the mid-1990s.
Balearic house was named for its popularity in European nightclubs and beaches on the Balearic island of Ibiza. Balearic beats is often referred to as “the sound of Ibiza”, even though many other, more aggressive and upbeat forms of dance music can be heard on the island.
Here´s my take on defining balearic beats as a playlist. I will update frequently to keep you up to date on the genre. Please click through to follow the Balearic House music playlist 🙂
Ibiza has become known for its association with nightlife, electronic dance music and for the summer club scene, all of which attract large numbers of tourists and club music lovers from all over the world. Listen to my IBIZA Club Classics playlist on Spotify.
The name ‘ Ibiza’ originally comes from the Arabic word ‘Yabisah’, meaning Land (or the Landward) and ‘Eivissa’ is the official Catalan pronunciation of the name. … Ibiza’s history dates back to 654 BC when the Phoenician settlement established a port on the island and named it Ibossim. Read up on the history of Ibiza on Wikipedia.
When should I go to Ibiza?
The best time to visit Ibiza is from May to October when high temperatures hover in the mid-70s and mid-80s and the party crowd descends. The months between November and April are considered low season, when flight and hotel rates drop along with the temperatures to more moderate 50s and 60s.
There are so many great beach clubs on Ibiza for daytime clubbing, its virtually impossible to recommend one single beach club. Here are some of my favourites beach clubs with a slight biased focus on the music. This article will be updated.
Café del Mar
The original and probably best known places on the island. A classic place with amazing chill music. Among the resident DJ´s are Ken Fan who you really should go and check out on Spotify. Probably one of the most famous sunsets in the world.
THE place for Balearic music. This is probably where you are most likely to hear at least one classic house tune every hour. The list of famous DJs visiting the decks on this legendary place is unreal. Literally every named DJ has played here. Café Mambo Ibiza got their own profile on Spotify. You´ll find Café Mambo just next door to Café del Mar.
Amazing place for music – both night-time and daytime. Among my favourite DJs to resident here are Pablo Fuero. The kind of sounds you´ll hear at Alma Beach is very much the nomadic sound of international ethnic inspired house. Check out my Nomade playlist for a taste…
A classic Ibiza lounge place with amazing food and music. Want to highlight what DJs like Alex Kentucky has done for this place both in terms of DJing but also curation of the yearly compilation release.
Exhilarating entertainment and themed nights.
Striking the perfect balance between barefoot-chic and glitz and glamour, Nassau has become the beach club of choice for Ibiza’s in-crowd. It has a range of amenities on offer, so you will surely find something to suit everyone in your charter party, and it’s conveniently located on one of Ibiza’s buzziest beaches, Playa d’en Bossa.
Cotton Beach Ibiza is a really unique place both in terms of music but also food, music and location. Dont be surprised to find live band here or a combination of DJs and percussion.
Celebrity spotting and an extensive wine-list
With your yacht anchored in the bay, Cotton Beach Club’s exclusive tender service will bring you directly to the soft, white shore, where you can relax in a private gazebo or lounge on a daybed. From the beach, a flight of stairs leads you up to the popular terrace restaurant which enjoys spectacular views over the Balearic Sea.
Amazing place for music. Blue Marlin also got their own playlist curated by their own resident DJ. Blue Marin Ibiza Spotify Playlist. Blue Marlin is also a great place for night time outdoor clubbing with amazing DJs.
The Ibiza club experience in a beach party setting!
One of the hottest party destinations in Ibiza, Blue Marlin is popular during the day and into evening. The venue is a great place to take a swim, enjoy a light lunch or wind down with a relaxing massage from one of the club’s resident massage therapists. When the sun goes down, you can expect DJs and dancing.
The rustic setting of Amante, set on beautiful Sol D’en Serra Bay, is hard to beat if you’re looking for a chilled-out atmosphere where you can escape the crowds. Tucked into an idyllic little cove, Amante has a more secluded feel than other beach clubs which lends itself perfectly to lazy days that turn into unhurried evenings.
