    Party with Friends in Ibiza

    Spend the New Year’s Eve sailing around the White Island during the day and moor your yacht at Sant Antoni de Portmany when the sun goes down and step into the nightlife. Ibiza is the perfect place to celebrate NYE 2018 with your friends. I mean, we all know what Ibiza is famous for and this party-scene is absolutely booming on the 31st of December. During the day, you can enjoy a tour of the island – make sure to add the beaches of Cala Llentrisca, Cala Llentia and Cala Tarida to your itinerary. When you have had enough sun and sand for the day, head back to Sant Antoni de Portmany for an evening of revelry. Ibiza, besides being the hippest party-location, is beautiful and definitely worth checking out. Find you dream yacht in Ibiza.

During the day you can go hiking and climb Table Mountain to see the city of Cape Town from another perspective. When the evening falls, hop back on board your private yacht and enjoy the view of the city while the fireworks go off as you and your friends or family unwind together as the countdown begins. After your relaxing start of the new year, you can enjoy the culture of South Africa. Go to the Haunted Castle which was built at the end of the 17th century by the Dutch East India Company. During your visit at the castle, you will learn more about the history of ‘Kaapstad’. Sounds like something you are up for this year? Check out this page and learn more about how to make it happen.
