Now it seems like we may have to do this for a while longer as the Balearic government has said that Ibiza nightclubs will remain shut until the end of 2020 and perhaps even until yearly next year. The news has sent a shockwave through the nightlife and tourism industry on the Spanish island.

According to some local reports, the government has probably ruled out reopening until the Coronavirus vaccine has been found. The tourist-driven country is a hotspot for travellers and partygoers and is termed as one of the party capitals of the world.
