DJ Mag Top100 Clubs

There’s no shortage of beachside clubs in Croatia, though few have notched up as many big-name bookings as Papaya. Located on the idyllic shores of Croatia’s Zrce Beach, everyone from Sven Väth to Jamie Jones have spun at the club’s open air beach parties, alongside EDM heavyweights (Cosmic Gate, Dannic, Andrew Rayel) and occasional hip-hop, dubstep and R&B booking. Located right on the beachfront on the party Island of Pag, the club boast's a huge beachside arena to dance in, plus a luxurious VIP area and an “afterparty beach” at the back 

Where the club really makes its mark is with its festival bookings — epic festival events including Sonus, Barrakud, DJ Mag Beach, Spring Break and Fresh Island have all hosted parties on the clubs sandy dancefloor. But you better be quick! Thanks to weather conditions, the club is only open during Croatia's sweltering summertime — the season lasts for three months, from late May to early of September. Best bit? You can top off your visit to Papaya with a spot of bungee jumping — the club has its own tower off which to throw yourself. No lie!
