Croatia is a small Mediterranean country in the southeast of Europe which is home to about 4.5 million citizens. Many people already recognize Croatia as an excellent country for vacation. Not only does it offer gorgeous mountains and countrysides, but with its 1233 islands, Croatia has one of the most indented coastlines around. Natural beauties, good weather and low prices for accommodation, along with quality food and drinks made this country even more interesting to tourists.
Many people call Croatia a party land; a dream for young people. Along the coast there are lots of clubs, beach bars or cafe bars that turn into dance floors after sunset. Even festival organizers recognized the huge potential of Croatia, so you can enjoy in a lot of happenings and events during summer.
But one island deserves more than the rest to be in the spotlight…
On the north of Croatia’s coast an island named Pag is situated. The island of Pag is the fifth largest island in the Adriatic sturgeon. A bit more than 10 years ago, Pag was a perfect choice for family with children, it still is, but the other side of island offers something completely different. If you like to party, and I mean really party hard, beach Zrće is the place for you. This beach of youth earned its nickname Croatian Ibiza. Zrćes non-stop parties, and a plethora of young people dancing, drinking, swimming, bungee jumping or water skiing will leave you breathless. This place of positive vibes will completely fascinate you, believe me. Noa, Papaya, Aquarius, Euphoria and Kalyspo are the clubs on this beach all located one next to the other. Their infrastructure is massive; you will leave this beach breathless, voiceless and probably drunk. Beach parties all day turn into hot summer parties at night.
All clubs are pretty amazing, but I have to tell something more about one, the biggest, the coolest, the club that makes all your party dreams come true- Papaya. Papaya is with no doubt the best club in Croatia, and ranked as the 23rd club in the world by the famous DJ MAG. It spreads over 32,000 sq ft and has the capacity of approximately 4500 people. This club organizes two parties per day throughout the summer months: after beach parties from 4pm to 8pm and spectacular night parties from 10pm to 6am, very often featured by world known DJs and performers. All the best DJs in the world perform here, and come back again and again. The likes of Armin van Buuren, Swedish House Mafia, Hardwell, Tiesto, Sven Vath, Carl Cox, Paul Van Dyk, Justice, Calvin Harris, Axwell, Bingo Players and many others have played, proving Papaya offers different genres of music for every taste. Guests can choose between Spring Break as a good start of festival season, then Hideout, Sonus, Barrakud, DJ MAG, Fresh Island, Papaya Day&Night and there are more to come.
During the day, the pool parties are full of people, dancing, singing and just having fun. No doubt entering Papaya will give you goose bumps just looking at that spectacular view. The crowd starts to enter the club around 4 pm and then the madness ensues. If you are not ready to lose your voice and leave each part of your body on the dance floor don’t even bother coming inside. The perfect moment is when you find yourself drinking your favorite cocktail in the pool while looking at the perfect sunset just across the club. And you know what the best part is? The night hasn’t even started yet. So like most people, around 8 pm everybody leaves and goes to their apartments to eat, shower, change from swimsuits to some party outfits and at 11 everybody is already back. Can you imagine that? If you are a party animal, this place is heaven on earth for you.
Coming from the center of the town called Novalja, probably by bus or walking (20minutes) to Zrće, you will already hear what is happening at the party site. Getting closer to the beach the music becomes louder and louder. Finally, when you enter the beach and when you get in front of Papaya, you will have goose bumps again looking at the view in front of you. If you aren’t fascinated, please, turn around and immediately go home and turn on Desperate Housewives, because this place isn’t for you… for sure. Entering Papaya, you will see a big VIP section, all set down to the last detail, friendly staff will show you around if you are feeling overwhelmed. Passing through the crowd, soon you will find yourself on a huge dance floor and in front of you will shine a beautiful, big stage with the equally enchanting light show.
In recent years, Papaya has invested millions of Euros in a light show and sound system to track the latest international trends. At 3 pm the dance floor is packed, the party is in full swing and pure bliss can be seen on the faces of everyone. Dancing to your favorite music under the open sky, keeping above you only the stars and sky as the limit will make you pause for a moment and ask yourself: is this the real life or is this just fantasy? The fun lasts and lasts until the early hours of the morning. Another indescribable feeling is dancing to the sunrise and the sea view. Djs who rarely stay longer than scheduled time makes the crowd go insane.
Theres a reason Club Papaya is one of the best in the world. Viewing it objectively and not as a fan, Papaya is perfectly decorated, first and foremost, if you need the toilet forget the crowds and long lines, because unlike most clubs Papaya has a plenty of toilets, both male and female. In addition, if you want to get to the bar, you will also have no problem because they are everywhere, and the staff is more than kind. Not to mention the prices, 1-liter cocktails cost about 20 Euros. Palm trees and swimming pools give this club an exotic atmosphere, and a view of the sea, sunset and sunrise in the morning give this club a really rare vibe. Their security? I can also say is only the best, with lots of them at the right places keeping the club safe. Owners and organizers of Papaya are trying to give people the best of the party scene every year, and we must admit that they certainly succeed. I think they could definitely be a role model for all those who want to engage in this kind of business.
Among the many festivals, which start in the spring and last through the end of August, you will find something unique. The best of EDM music, techno, trance, deep house, drum and bass, and hip hop can all be found in the same place. The worlds best DJs will make your summer unforgettable at Club Papaya and make sure that you consider coming back next year. Thousands of young people every year do not miss this party oasis and are the best proof and guarantee for an unforgettable summer.
