Jersey Shore Season 4? Forget It, Check Out Europe's Real Jersey Shores

Nothing screams euro-party quite like the Ibiza scene, which is world-famous for bronzed, scantily-clad, and very intoxicated party people. This island in the Mediterranean welcomes thousands of tourists each summer, who come to relax on gorgeous beaches and drink and dance their nights away at any number of the famous clubs while DJs play music until morning. Ibiza makes Seaside Heights' club scene look like a kiddie pool.

Cannes, the home of the world-renowned film festival, is also home to some tacky crowds. Though the seaside community has palm-tree lined blocks and elegant, palatial hotels, the town has also become a magnet for label-loving fashion fiends. Though Cannes is certainly one of the more cultural stops on this list, the glitterati (and faux-glitterati) have surely left their mark on the town.

The largest of the Canary Islands, Tenerife draws an abundance of crowds in the southwestern part of the island to Los Cristianos, Playa de Las Americas and Costa Adeje. These party towns, equipped with neon-signed clubs and overly-burned northern Europeans host all-night parties, all-you-can-eat buffets and mega-resorts galore. For a fist-pumping good time, head to the most famous club, Casablanca.

Mallorca, the largest of Spain’s Ballearic Islands, is most often visited for the three s’s: sun, sand & sea. The east coast boasts the most heavily-touristed beaches, while Palma, the capital, has an extensive bar scene. While it’s not Seaside’s Karma, Puro Beach has an abundance of DJs and a rowdy European clientele.

Mykonos is one of the most famous party towns in Greece, and it caters openly and freely to all kinds of visitors (its known for being extremely gay friendly as well). Travelers seeking an exceptional beach party vacation flock to the island in the summer, hitting the bars and discos, and wearing little (and sometimes no) clothing at all. Mykonos' atmosphere gets slightly "fist-pumpy" during high season, making it another Jersey Shore-esque European hotspot.

Also known as the "Miami of Europe," this coastal town on the Adriatic Sea has over 9 miles of beaches, and is one of Europe's most popular beach destinations. Past Rimini's seaside promenade lie hundreds of hotels, nightclubs and restaurants – where the "guido" ancestors of the Jersey Shore cast congregate and party.

Taormina is an extremely popular beach resort in Sicily. The beaches, scenery and historical landmarks are gorgeous – and things certainly heat up in the summer, when large numbers of Italian tourists flood the small town.
