A major travel update has been issued for holidaymakers wishing to head to Ibiza this summer, with the possibility of nightclubs opening earlier making it the longest-ever clubbing season.
This is in massive contrast to last year when the majority of clubs kept their doors closed due to the pandemic.
Currently, the Balearic Islands have a cap on how many people are allowed indoors as they remain on health alert level three, however, it was announced at a press conference this week that Ibiza’s iconic nightlife is set to return soon.
According to Mixmag, various nightlife and tourism features are planned for this year and events will start two weeks earlier than usual.
The news comes as dates were confirmed for some major festivals on the island, with the first being Sueños de Libertad, which kicks off on July 28.
Ibiza saw a huge decline in British tourism during the pandemic, with a drop of 93 per cent jetting off to the island.
Manager of the Ocio de Ibiza (Leisure of Ibiza) association Jose Luis Benitez said: “The idea is that the opening will be at the end of April, two weeks ahead of what is normally done.”
He also said that the nightlife season plans to “continue on until October… November if all goes well.”
“All of the island’s major nightlife enterprises are actively working this winter to prepare for the season.”
“Even so, we will proceed with caution and in collaboration with the authorities.”
If the plans go ahead, this will be the longest time nightclubs will have been open in Ibiza since 2019.
The announcement comes following reassurance from Spain’s Tourism Minister Reyes Maroto that “Spain is a safe tourism destination.”
The exact date on new measures and rules regarding Covid passports has still not been confirmed and, currently, Ibiza beaches are capped at 50 per cent capacity and many even require appointments to visit.
Masks are still mandatory outside unless exercising alone.
