If you’re looking for a sunny spot to get a tan this winter, but still want to enjoy the party atmosphere that you enjoyed in Ibiza in the summer, then you’re in luck. A number of winter destinations are known to be some of the hottest party destinations around the world, and in many cases, you’ll be able to enjoy these party destinations all year-round! There’s plenty of options to choose from around the world if you love to dance all night, and here, we’ve put together some of the best year-round party destinations, so you don’t have to put your Thomas Royall swim shorts into hibernation just yet!
Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
You haven’t experienced the party life until you’ve made the long-haul trip to Rio. Brazil is known for its Samba culture, party lifestyle and incredible carnival atmosphere. With Carnival season offering wild 5-day parties with more than 2 million people dancing on the streets, and Copacabana beach offering the perfect opportunity to dance with sand under your feet all year round, Rio really does provide an awe-inspiring year-round party destination. Even in the coldest month, temperatures in Rio rarely drop below 20 degrees, and the only thing that might put a halt to your enjoyment is the heavy rain in December. Nevertheless, the rain doesn’t have to put a stop to the party, as there are plenty of bars, clubs and party hotspots indoors that can keep the party going all year-round.
Interestingly, Goa has an incredibly exciting electronic dance music (EDM) scene, which has led to a hugely exciting party atmosphere. In fact, parties in Goa are known to go on for days, and flood out of the bars, clubs, festivals and music events onto the streets and beautiful beaches. To top it all off, Goa is known for having some of the biggest and best silent discos in the world, so you can be certain that you’re going to have a good time in this beautiful Indian state. Located along the Arabian Sea, you can hit the beach during the day to top up your tan, and head to a Goa Trance party at night!
Koh Phangan, Thailand
Well-known for hosting Thailand’s most memorable Full Moon Party every year, Koh Phangan takes the lead for the hottest party destination in Thailand (although Khao San Road in Bangkok is a close second). Whenever a full moon appears in the sky, usually once a month, the biggest party in all of Thailand kicks off, on the tiny island of Koh Phangan. Here, you can drink and dance until your heart’s content, and if you’re feeling brave enough, you may even want to try jumping the rope of fire! Even during the wet, monsoon season, the parties never stop in Koh Phangan.
Playa Del Ingles, Gran Canaria
If you’re looking for amicable temperatures that you can enjoy all year round, then Playa Del Ingles is the ideal location. Perfect for relaxing during the day and taking advantage of a real holiday atmosphere, this idyllic island country, located just off the West Coast of Africa, is a great choice. However, once the sun begins to set, the real party kicks off. There are two main party hubs in Playa Del Ingles – the Yumbo which is popular with the gay community and the Kasbah which is generally more mixed. With The Garage at Kasabah offering the best value drinks, and the Yumbo offering the Showbar where you can enjoy the latest Drag Queen entertainment. There’s plenty to enjoy in Playa Del Ingles, suited to all tastes, and with great year-round temperatures, it’s the ideal location for a party.
Unsure where you’re headed on your next party holiday? There’s plenty to choose from around the world to suit any budget, and with your Thomas Royall swim shorts to hand, you can be sure to have the best time, every time.
