Benidorm’s nightlife scene, balmy climate and huge range of hen party activities are the main reasons why so many hens celebrate there, year in, year out. Of course, that’s not forgetting the cheap price of potent drinks. Notorious with British nutters abroad, Benidorm has its fair share of wild places to party, where inhibitions and rules are left firmly at the door. However, there’s also a semi-sophisticated underbelly to Benidorm, with private spas offering relaxing treatments, private catamaran cruises around the Med and even picturesque seafront bars and high-end drinks, where your mum and future Mother-in-Law can get on their glad rags and chat about the wedding – whilst you and the girls top up your tans and let those hangovers subside. As far as activities are concerned, you can rest assured that out of the 50+ on offer, there’s bound to be something perfect for you and your group. If you’ve never been to bonnie Benni, we’d recommend the meet and greet service, where a lovely local guide will make sure you’re picked up from the airport and will answer any questions you may have about your stay.
As you’re about to find out, there’s plenty on offer for hen parties celebrating in Benidorm. But, there are certain activities which prove more and more popular with our groups each year, and for good reason too. The smashed group bar crawl is one of those activities; tipped as ‘Benidorm’s most famous bar crawl’, this huge, public event can see anything from 50 to 300 party animals take a trip down the infamous ‘strip’. You’ll head to a minimum of three bars along the strip, accompanied by your friendly rep, and will have shots included throughout the night. There are just no downsides to this activity.
If you’re on this hen weekend equipped with the mantra, ‘go hard or go home’, you won’t be disappointed with the wealth of boozy activities. You can let Benidorm know the girls have landed by steaming to your accommodation from the airport, in none less than a party bus – you’ll have a meet and greet at arrivals and two bottles of bubbly to kick start your weekend.
The cocktail making classes are extremely popular, making sure hens start the night right, and by right, we mean drunk. You could even crank things up a naughty level (when in Benni…) and even enjoy a guided bar crawl with a stripper, or perhaps arrange for a cheeky, semi-naked butler to serve your drinks and look after you all night, if you’re feeling like giving the hen a night to remember.
Of course, just because you’re in Benidorm doesn’t necessarily mean that you need to start drinking at 11am (although we would make the most of those cheap drinks if we were you), you could settle for an extremely relaxing spa day in Benidorm. You can use facilities including Jacuzzi pools, saunas and even Roman hot pools – ideal for detoxing those hangovers and prepping yourselves for the next night to begin.
If you prefer an action-packed sort of activity, Benidorm never fails to impress our adrenaline junkies. Why not parasail over the entire resort, taking in the views with a friend or just a solo flight, or even try your hand at wakeboarding or cable skiing, to make your makes back at home green with envy.
