Ever wondered what it’s like to see the clubbing capital of the world through the eyes of one of its biggest DJs?
Martin Garrix recently teamed up with the editors of Apple Maps’ “Guides” feature—packages of tourist information that allow users to organize locations and destinations on the platform—to spotlight his top places on the island of Ibiza. The Dutch dance music icon seems to have a soft spot for the radiant White Isle, opening up about his favorite view, seafood restaurant, hiking trail and more.
Fans who want to take in Ibiza’s breathtaking sunsets, Garrix says, should head to the mythical Es Vedrà, a small, uninhabited island that’s part of the Cala d’Hort nature reserve.
“Es Vedrà is a small island located near Ibiza that is considered to hold a special magnetic energy. I enjoy taking a boat ride to this unique and beautiful location. The lookout point is also amazing, where you can witness the most insane sunsets. It’s something you should experience at least once in your life. I’ve spent some of my most amazing evenings there with friends.”
When it comes to Garrix’s favorite place on Ibiza, he singled out the fabled Ushuaïa. Since first sneaking in over a decade ago at the age of 15, he’s been regularly tearing up the iconic venue for his high-flying summer residencies.
“My favorite place in Ibiza is definitely Ushuaïa [where I have my summer residency]. I love the setting, atmosphere, and overall setup,” Garrix said. “It’s a surreal place, and I’ve been going there for over 12 years. The first time I went, I snuck in to see Swedish House Mafia, and the year after that, I played a set myself. It will always be magical to play there with the sun going down, planes flying over, and people dancing.”
