Pictures by Anita de Austria. It’s no secret that Ibiza loves a good party. But yesterday really proved the island’s collective determination to fiesta when, after a marathon of closings and despite thunder, lightning and pouring rain, the movers and shakers of the White Isle turned out in force to help close The Chiringuito Cala Nova.

Part of the renowned Atzaro portfolio, the cute beach shack outlasted many other popular seaside destinations but, of course, islanders were keen for one final get together on the beach and a dance on the soft sands. Starting in the afternoon, the day–to-night celebrations combined a roster of DJ talent and live performers with the warm hospitality and stunning views that have won the venue a legion of loyal fans.




The Chiringuito Cala Nova closing always has a special vibe, bringing together families and friends, locals, residents and holidaymakers, hippies, cool kids and music lovers from all over the island. And just like in previous years, with the boho chic venue bustling with guests, revellers were spilling out onto the beach to enjoy the beautiful natural setting of the tranquil bay. And with the likes of Jacobo Saavedra bringing the beats, the dance floor was full from the word go!





As night began to fall and the silver full moon rose out of the waves, the party pace went up a level, with Mischief founders Blackbeard DJ and jUsTom taking to the decks to keep the energy UP with their infectious and sexy house sound. They were followed by Miguel Garji, another popular face on the island and beach club veteran, whose deep and driving basslines were echoing along the coast and off into the stormy night, giving the thunder and lightning racing across the sky a run for their money.





With ever more people arriving, laughing into the face of the temperamental weather, the celebrations were well ad truly in swing. Everywhere we turned, people were chatting away animatedly, toasting the end of another season and losing themselves in the music. With torches surrounding the venue, the Chiringuito made for a magical sight bathed in bright moonlight.





Iban Mendoza took to the decks and pushed the party onto a new level with irresistible basslines and expertly teased drops, making revellers go wild in front of the booth. A Chiringuito Cala Nova regular, he had partygoers in the palm of his hand as he fired one quality track after the next off into the night. It’s only the very best parties that leave you wanting more, and this was most certainly the case when waved goodbye to the young, fun venue for another winter. But one thing’s for sure, we’ll be amongst the first through the doors when the Chiringuito Cala Nova reopens next spring!
