Ibiza losing party reputation to Greece

Islands like Kos and Zante see more under-25s
Ibiza may be losing its reputation as a party destination. As more middle-aged holidaymakers book to go there, younger people are heading to lively islands in Greece instead.
Tour operator Thomas Cook says that Ibiza bookings for 18-29 year olds are declining, while those for 30-39 year olds are rising.
One in six bookings to Ibiza have shifted from the under 30s to the 30-39 category over the last five years, while family holidays have increased by 6%.
More affordable clubbing experiences can be had in Greece, which is seeing significantly higher bookings among the under 25s. Islands such as Kos and Zante (Zakynthos) are seeing more young tourists and less of the over 50s.
“The young partygoers who are looking for alternative and more affordable options to Ibiza are choosing the likes of Kardamena in Kos, where they can party into the early hours on Bar Street,” Thomas Cook said.
“Zante’s Laganas Strip is another favourite and is considered one of Europe’s most popular party hotspots for the under 25s who don’t see the appeal of Ibiza and are on a tighter budget.”
In Ibiza, meanwhile, “the happy hardcore of the 90s and early 2000s is giving way to chill-out beats to suit a growing band of 30-somethings and their young families.”
