It has been revealed that the $1 billion Al Marjan Island development will be dedicating one of its four islands to compete with Europe's biggest party capital – Ibiza. With a plan to attract over 20,000 partygoers it will include two 'mega clubs', four beach clubs, five hotels and 100 restaurants. The 4 million square foot island will not feature any homes and will only be open to visitors and residents of the neighbouring islands.

George Saad, the sales and marketing director at Al Marjan Island recently said of the new ambitious project: "We're trying to make it the new Ibiza – a mini Ibiza dedicated solely to partying, People will be able to come here, stay in the hotel, party at clubs on the beach, anything in the world you can do. And we are trying to attract festivals to come her ­– like Burning Man."

The clubber's paradise is expected to be finished by 2018.
