Marbella / Puerto Banus
If you and the girls have been looking for a taste of the sweet life, then Marbella is the perfect place for your hen weekend! Playground to the rich and famous, Marbella knows how to pamper its guests: gorgeous beaches, high-end shopping, fine dining, legendary nightlife in nearby Puerto Banus, oh and did we mention the hunk factor? Whether you're looking to meet a gorgeous surfer or you're more the millionaire-on-a-yacht type of woman, Marbella's got you covered. Eye-candy comes calorie-free, after all, so take it all in on a Marbella hen do that'll never be outdone!
Smack in the middle of the Costa del Sol, Marbella is an incredibly popular spot for hens and stags to enjoy their last few nights of freedom, so don't be surprised if you make lots of friends in a hurry. The weather is scintillatingly warm but the sea breeze off the Mediterranean keeps everyone chill. This is one of the richest districts in Spain, so you can be sure to expect only the finest, from the architecture to the food to the men.
Plan far enough in advance and you can bag flights to Marbella for £125, but most of the time flights with Ryanair and EasyJet will probably set you back about £250 whether you take off from London, Liverpool, or Manchester. The flight is only about 2.5 hours, though, so you don't have to keep it together for too long. Once you arrive in Marbella, you can hire a snazzy ride, hop a super-reliable coach, or grab a taxi for about £15.
Everything you need is within walking distance in Marbella. The nightlife right there is sweet enough, but for the full-blown sugar candy, step in a quick taxi to Puerto Banus.
Beautiful any time of year, Marbella and Puerto Banus are especially sexy in the summer, when the luscious, luxurious party never ends. Everything here is world-class, right down to the weather, so it's a perfect spot for some hardcore indulgence. Lounge the day away on any of Marbella's award-winning beaches, check out what's new with Jimmy Choo and Dior in Puerto Banus, splurge on a 5-star spa day, or even explore the open water while sipping champagne on a chartered yacht (that is, if you don't find a handsome yachtsman to take you out on his!).
As the evening draws in, get ready to glam up and go out for a night you'll never forget. Puerto Banus is a hedonist's heaven - you and your girls will be spoiled for choice when it comes to delicious cocktails, splashy clubs, and handsome strangers. The restaurant at Nikki Beach is world-famous for food, fun, and people watching (keep your eyes open for vacationing celebrities), and venues like Aqua Mist feature VIP lounges with their own hot tubs. Because why not?! With unparalleled bar crawls, VIP party packages, and cheeky male strippers, Puerto Banus has everything to make this the hen weekend that goes down in history!
