The finest A-list stars continue to descend to the island each year, seeking an indulgent escape in one of the most sought-after destinations in the world.

Since Freddie Mercury chose Ibiza to celebrate his infamous birthday bash in the 1980s, the island has continued to attract a host of world-class celebrities to the island every summer. With many owning their very own luxurious villa, restaurant or yacht on the island, you may certainly be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of your favourite superstar. Here are our top celebrity spotting places in Ibiza this year.

Luxurious marinas

Marina Botafoch is synonymous with luxury, so it is of little surprise that you may spot one of your favourite stars in the swanky area. The breathtaking complex of Las Boas is just one of the developments that many A-list celebrities have chosen as their holiday home, with the musical star Shakira and her sporting hero husband Gerard Pique buying a home here. Designed by the acclaimed architect Jean Nouvel, the exclusive residence has also hosted the footballing stars Carles Puyol and David Villa, as well as Russian billionaire mogul Roman Abramovich.

Fusing incredible cabaret performances with exquisitely divine fine-dining, the establishment has a guest list that features some of the biggest names in the world. Eva Longoria, Leo Messi, Leonardo DiCaprio, David Guetta, Anne Hathaway, Gerard Butler and Michael Jordan are just a handful of the celebrities that have passed through their doors, so prepare to be stunned by a sight of the venue’s finest attendees.

With a roster of famous international and local artists as well as superstar DJs, the venue continues to attract jet-setters and the whos-who of the global elite.
