Revellers are basing their party destinations choices on how the resort appears on social media.

A recent Facebook study found that 70 per cent of travel enthusiasts share their plans on Instagram, while 67 per cent use the platform to find inspiration for their holiday destinations.

A poll, by overseas recruitment specialist Summer Takeover, has revealed the nation's favourite party resorts based on the number of Instagram posts.

There are some relatively new places to party - as well as an old favourite in the top 10.

Popular resorts like Ibiza, Ayia Napa in Cyprus and Majorca's Magaluf fail to make the list - so those that are included really must offer the trip of a lifetime.

Here are the top 10 party hotspots...
