Dua Lipa has traveled the world, but when it’s time to relax, she has two favorite places to visit.

During an appearance on Bowen Yang and Matt Roger’s Las Culturistas podcast, the singer dished about where she loves to go and one spot she’s never been.

Epcot, it seems, remains a mystery to Dua and is definitely not on her list of up-and-coming hot spots to visit. When Matt jokingly suggested it, she was a little confused.

“What is that?” she asked. “Is that part of DisneyWorld?”

So what is her special place? First the English/Albanian pop icon gave a nod to her heritage, endorsing southern Albania as a perfect place to unwind. The locals are known for their hospitality, and flights and accommodations are affordable.

Plus, the Albanian Riveria has pristine beaches with crystal-clear water that attracts sun-seekers from across Europe. Dhërmi and Ksamil, in particular, are popular with locals and tourists alike.

But when it comes to beaches, Dua has a particular favorite: Ibiza.

While most people think of wild parties and big crowds, she pointed out, there’s more than “the one strip with all the clubs where it’s like absolute carnage.”

“But you can do really, like, peaceful quiet… There’s amazing restaurants in Ibiza. It’s really chill, beautiful little beaches, little coves, like, it’s amazing. And then you can dip out once a week.”

If you go to Ibiza to follow in Dua’s footsteps, be sure to check out these three popular beaches.

Bossa Beach is the longest stretch of beach in Ibiza and offers a little slice of life in each different section. With a large portion dappled with lounge chairs and umbrellas and another with countless bars and clubs where the party spills out onto the sand, you could spend all day enjoying the shimmering shores. 

Located only a few blocks away from Ibiza’s Town center, Platja de ses Figueretes‘s accessible beach is bursting with color, life, and conveniences. Though this relaxing and popular isn’t designated an LGBTQ+-specific spot, the first stretch of the bay is well known throughout the community as a gay hotspot. 

But we saved the best for last.

Gorgeous Platja des Cavallet is split into three sections. All are gay-friendly, but the southern end is specifically for the LGBTQ+ crowd and is completely clothing-optional. The gentle waves make swimming and snorkeling popular when you aren’t soaking up the sun. Near plenty of restaurants and amenities, it’s easy to spend all day lounging on the sand wearing little or nothing at all!
