Eivissa is a very popular tourist destination, especially due to its legendary and at times riotous nightlife centered around two areas Ibiza Town, the island's capital on the eastern shore and San Antonio to the north. Ibiza Town has become a popular destination for tourists. The most famous clubs include Privilege (the largest club in the world), Es Paradís (noted for its water parties), Amnesia (known for foam parties), Space (an afterparty club), Pacha, Eden, and DC10. These clubs have become the center of the worldwide electronic music movement.
During the summer, world class DJs perform at the various clubs on weekly schedules, in between touring to other international destinations. Many of these DJs use Ibiza as an outlet for presenting new songs within the house and trance genres of electronic dance music. A typical schedule for vacationers includes waking at noon, early evening naps, late night clubbing, and "disco sunrises". Due to Ibiza's notable tolerance toward misbehavior from young adult tourists, it has acquired the sobriquet "Gomorrah of the Med". It is also famous for Café del Mar, a long-standing bar where many tourists traditionally view the sunset.
