Hen Do Hot Destination: Barcelona
A beautiful and pumping party city with great culture, cuisine and miles of beaches on your doorstep. What more could you ask from a hen do destination? This post takes a look at why a hen party in Barcelona is where it’s at.
The Catalonian Partying Hub
In districts like El Born and the Gothic area, you’re pretty much surrounded by bars of all varieties whether your poison is tequila, sangria, prime cerveza, or a sun soaked cocktail before a night on the palm lined ramblas of the gorgeous city centre.
If you like your night time entertainment a little left of centre there are lots of bars and venues with live music from passionate traditional flamenco to floor-shaking club bangers, techno, disco, and everything in between. Check out Razzmatazz, the Mac Arena Beach Club, La Terrrazza, and City Hall, for PM to AM hen do naughtiness.
Miles of Beaches
For quick access from the city centre area coming from the harbour, Barceloneta beach is the most popular tourist beach in the town – its sandy, pristine and full of tanned sun worshippers. You can hire sunbeds and parasols for your hen group, and eat, drink and dance at the Chiringuitos.
If the hen-do-spirit really spreads, there is a nudist beach in Barcelona at Sant Sebastia if it takes your fancy. Just think, no tanlines!
Getting Around this Sunny City
If walking to and from the beach in your sandy flip flops is getting you down, bike hire around the city is so easy to do and you’ll find a hire shop on just about every major tourist street. Failing that, the metro and taxis are super easy to navigate to find perfect sunspots.
If organisation and sheer logistics is getting you hot under the collar, you’ll be forgiven, as the sheer amount going on in Barcelona is huge. On the planning front, there are ways around it by checking out special hen do organisers like the The Stag and Hen Experience that have expert plans to take all the stress out.
Activities and Sights
Shopping in Barcelona is great for finding unique gifts and trinkets that you won’t find elsewhere – the Gothic quarter is great for getting a retail therapy fix while getting suitably festive at some choice bars and tapas restaurants.
The tourist merchandise shops are two a penny in places like Parc Guell and the Sagrada Familia and the New Camp football ground. There’s plenty of Gaudi architecture to see as you make your way around the city and you can even go to waterparks if they take your fancy.
If you’re a hen or hen party organiser wanting to please everyone for the bride’s last hurrah as a single lady, Barcelona is clearly, is a real winner.
