One of the key factors when planning a memorable hen weekend is to ensure that the destination appeals to those in attendance. Finding a location which offers fun, a chance to enjoy some giggles and shared memories is top of the list when it comes to the perfect hen weekend organisation. Which is a reason so many groups look towards the different resorts in Spain.
With a well deserved rep for the 3 s’ – sun, sea and sangria (any others?) – as well as a huge array of activities to while away the days and take you partying long into the night, Spain tends towards the ideal blend of exotic and familiar. Where there’s classy refinement and hedonistic delights in equal measure.
So dependent on your own particular preferences and tastes, here’s a pick of 3 resort options in Spain, chock full of hen weekend potential.
Simply one of the best and most versatile of hen weekend destinations in Spain or anywhere across Europe. This is a city that, quite frankly, has the lot.
If you’re looking for beaches, sultry slow days and a chance to catch up over a glass of wine at some fine dining, then Barcelona has a stunning bay area and long stretch of sandy (and bar lined) beach front, perfect for hen and friends alike. Then again, for the culturally minded hen group you have the chance to explore the stunning Gaudi architecture, a range of galleries and museums and historical landmarks dotted around the capital of Catalonia.
And then, if it’s late nights and club life that you crave, well – Barcelona has some of the coolest spots on the continent. From superclubs like CDLC to local party bars, Barcelona starts late and carries on even later, every weekend.
The spiritual home of the European club scene and a name synonymous with hedonistic pleasures, Ibiza Town has long been a venue for hen dos to descend upon. Don’t be fooled into thinking that this is pure lads on tour land though – that’s a Loaded magazine rep that’s more akin to the San Antonio area and simply doesn’t do justice to the uber-cool vibe of Ibiza Town. A perfect hen weekend destination in Spain for those seeking a combination of chilled out days on the beach or in the bars and bistros in the town along with nights dancing to the sounds of some of the great DJs around, lost among the beautiful people at the great iconic venues of European nightlife.
Perhaps not as obvious a choice as the previous two, but if it’s a touch of sophistication that you’re in search for on your hen do, then Seville needs your full attention.
It’s a picturesque town, from its flowing river to delightful ancient architecture and generally sunny climate. A town of chic restaurants and trendy tapas bars, perfectly hidden away in the quaint side streets that make up the centre of Seville. As hen weekend destinations in Spain go, Seville oozes elegance.
But don’t panic – there’s still plenty of ‘traditional’ hen do fun to be found. From laughter filled Flamenco classes to the more, shall we say, energetic fervour of a pole dancing lesson. Not to mention the wine tasting, sangria sipping festivities within town as well. And at night, as is the case throughout this party hearty country, there’s plenty of choice for dining, drinking and seeing the night through at a variety of clubs and bars.
