Dragons might be the hottest mythical creatures in film and television — and it’s not just because of their fiery breath! They can soar through the sky, protect you from danger and some of them share a dark velvety voice with Benedict Cumberbatch. It might seem crazy, but the sound of Smaug’s voice in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug had us reconsidering our thoughts on bestiality. Well, at the very least, it had us thinking about dragons in a new light.

But you know what’s probably helping their case? All these celebrities we’ve been spotting doing everything but hitting the legendary night clubs (not that they didn’t also do that, we assume).
Whether it’s models like Doutzen Krous wading in the Mediterranean waters, athletes like Rafael Nadal getting behind the wheel of a boat or actors like Leonardo DiCaprio escaping from a private yacht on a freaking jet pack, these famous people have been living it up in Ibiza.
